Darn, you mean that my 'air ionizer' produces 'Ozone'?! Wondered why those
Iron objects kept rusting.
But Gary, for the sake of reality, many have already pointed out that Ozone
IS a nasty toxin. I my-self actually like the smell, but only in the few PPM
levels as otherwise I'd be hacking me lungs. Been their, done that.
I also don't care fer the experts 'opinions' as they are often way
over-educated ... Nothing beats real live experience. But I could X-Ray my
hand until the Sun comes down and still show now ill. But them scientists
said it was safe... Or not.
Let's please realize that safety is actually important.

What an impressive list of references. But I base my opinion on my
personal experience. I have an ozone air purifier in my residence that
produces enough ozone to destroy a rubber band in a couple of days. I
have been operating that machine continuously since 1997. Molds and odor
don't last long in than environment. I have breathed ozone, drank water
saturated with ozone, and injected it intravenously without harmful
effects. So, you can probably tell that I don't have a lot of respect
for experts' opinion.
It seems that the problem is ozone that is generated with sparks. All
the ozone I make with three different machine use high voltage cold
corona discharge which means no sparks to generate the nitrogen oxides.
Tesla got a patent for this method.
Here is an article (c) 1986, written be another chemist who tried to
kill a mouse with ozone and failed.
But the real question: Has anyone noticed any unusual effects from
working with the inert gases?
