What are ions?
Ions are all around you right now and, whether you are aware of them or not, there is a good chance they are affecting the way you feel and quite possibly your health as well. An ion is a molecule that has lost or gained an electron through various atmospheric forces or environmental influences. There are both positive and negative ions but, as we shall see, the definitions of ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ are misleading in terms of their health effects.
What Are Positive Ions?
Positive ions are usually carbon dioxide molecules that have been stripped of an electron. Also known as positively charged ions, they have been demonstrated to have a negative effect on your lungs, respiratory tract and your immune system. This is because positive ions are so small they can be absorbed directly into your bloodstream from the air you breathe. An excess of positively charged ions in your environment is believed to contribute to tiredness and a lack of energy, tension, anxiety and irritability. Positive ions in the air have even been investigated as a contributing factor for asthma and depression.
Generators of harmful positive ions
Dust, Pollution, Office air-conditioning systems, Fluorescent lights, Electrical and computer equipment, Printers and photocopiers, Televisions etc.
What Are Negative Ions?
Negatively charged ions are the opposite of positive ions and they have directly the opposite effect on your health, mood and energy levels. Negative ions are created when a molecule gains a negatively charged electron. Due to this nature, they are statically attracted to airborne particles like dust, mold and other pollutants and potential allergens.By attaching to these pollutants and allergens they give them a negative charge and, rather than drifting in the air, they are grounded and fall to the floor or nearest surface. Even bacteria and viruses circling in a room can be cleared by negatively charged ions attaching to them and removing them from the air.
Generators of Negative ions
Forests, Beaches, Waterfalls etc.
