This is great news.  It's nice to confirm you were on the right track all along, RC.

We owe it all to Rupert for first mentioning that salesman selling O3 machines to care homes.

Yea Rupert!  Thanks for that.

Honestly, more good info came from Th3 Core members throughout this pandemic than from any other source.  Especially in the really early days when nobody was sure what would work or not, and in the US, we were actively being told bogus information.

Thank you all.

I get a lot of queries from friends as one of the best-informed in my circle. The other day some "huge" thing happened and I knew nothing about it. I said, "There's this forum and most of my news comes from there, and this guy named RC Jordan has a heavily hacked RSS reader. So if something happens that gets filtered by his negative keyword list, I probably don't know about it."

Yeah! Yea Rupert!  Thanks for that.  Truthfully, ozone generators would never have crossed my mind.  They have been the linchpin of our home setup.


> negative keyword list

It will do positive keywords, too. I do have a few set up.


>Researchers Prove Ozone Effective
>Th3core

I sent that article to my wife and daughters - all O3 disciples.  Their reply was "They should have just talked to you guys and saved themselves the trouble.'

BTW, friend just borrowed my ozone machine because his girlfriend moved into an apartment in an older building that had that older building funky smell. They ran it for two hours, which helped. Then the next day they ran it for three hours. He said that even though they waited four hours after the machine stopped, there was still an ozone smell they had to air out, but after two treatments, the musty old building smell was gone.

So the thing has its household uses - eliminates odors, kills spiders and other insects, fights mold and mildew. Oh, and kills houseplants. There was one they forgot to remove and he said the petals were not affected, but the leaves were completely destroyed.

>fights mold and mildew

As I've posted in another thread, it has been constantly wet here since Thanksgiving.  February has just broken the all-time record for Feb rainfall ...looks like we're going to end up with somewhere between 5 to 6 inches this month.  Even though attic fans run when the humidity is high, that can't be enough when the weather outside just never dries up. I plan to heavily ozone the attic when it starts warming up.

>ozone smell they had to air out

We ozone the groceries we pick from Walmart while they're still in the van. Just set the generator in the rear and close the tailgate.  The O3 concentration gets really high in such a small, tight space.  Our masks, even those stored in the glove box, smell faintly of ozone 3 or 4 days later. That stuff penetrates.

>>fights mold and mildew

And salmonella, listeria, & e. coli, according to some studies I found.  I rss some food safety sites and the big, BIG culprits in food poisoning and contamination are greens, slaws, and pre-packaged salad vegetables. We use this

Works great.

It creates a wash solution rich in O3?

When I was looking up concentrations and such, I saw that a lot of the numbers are for O3 in water for water treatment, but at the time I considered it noise since I was trying to work out the concentrations in air.

>wash solution

It pumps out a steady air stream of o3 through 1/8" tubing.  There's a porous bubbler stone that goes on the end of the tube if you want to sink it in water.  So you can either run the output dry or wet/submerged.  Runs on a timer in 5 minute increments.  We use one -dry- in the garage in a small cooler to disinfect the mail and small packages.  On packaged vegetables (cauliflower, for example) I just clip the corner of the bag and insert the tube directly in the bag.  For whole heads of lettuce or cabbage, we fill a 3 gallon pot with water and bubble-wash it for 30 minutes.

Other than smell, I have no way to gauge the concentration, but it is definitely putting out a pretty good little stream of ozone.

One idea... Against The thousands I get from you Guys... the steadying voices.....The chats in the morning or late at night...   So thank you.

I think RC get the vote for the man who made it happen. My O3 generator is at the holiday house, not being used as no one is allowed to go!  >:(

>holiday house

Two of my daughters traveled with their families over the past year using both hotels and airbnbs.  They made a practice of decontaminating the rooms and to-go meals during their stays.  When we start traveling again, we plan to do the same for a while.

>>wash solution

Somewhere in all my searching, I ran across an NIH study that said O3 water was equally effective as the antibacterial periodontal rinse used by dentists & periodontists.  I bought a couple of machines for the bathrooms and we make our own mouthwash.  It has little or no taste and completely neutralizes the toothpaste aftertaste so I can enjoy my morning coffee and Nothing Hour.

That's intriguing. I'm going to have to look into that. We were just talking about making our own chemical mouthwash since we have gallons of hydrogen peroxide purchased when it looked like getting disinfectants might be hard

Results:
The interpretation of clinical and microbial data is from baseline to 7 th day. A higher percentage of plaque index (12%), gingival index (29%) and bleeding index (26%) reduction was observed using ozone irrigation as compared to chlorhexidine. The percentile reduction of Aa (25%) using ozone was appreciable as compared to no change in Aa occurrence using chlorhexidine. By using O 3 and chlorhexidine, there was no antibacterial effect on Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg) and Tannerella forsythensis. The antifungal effect of ozone from baseline (37%) to 7 th day (12.5%) was pronounced during the study period, unlike CHX, which did not demonstrate any antifungal effect.

==============

"Conclusions
Dentistry is changing as we are now using modern science to practice dentistry. In comparison with classical medicine modalities such as antibiotics and disinfectants, ozone therapy is quite inexpensive, predictable and conservative. The ozone therapy has been more beneficial than present conventional therapeutic modalities. This state of the art technology allows us to take a minimally invasive and conservative approach to dental treatment. The elucidation of molecular mechanisms of ozone further benefits practical application in dentistry. Treating patients with ozone therapy reduces the treatment time with a great deal of difference and it eliminates the bacterial count more precisely. The treatment is completely painless and increases the patients' acceptability and compliance with minimal adverse effects. Although more clinical research has to be done to standardize indications and treatment procedures of ozone therapy, still many different approaches are so promising, or already established, that hopefully the use of ozone therapy becomes a standard treatment for disinfection of an operation sites in dentistry."

" Because of the beneficial biological effects of ozone, due to its antimicrobial and immunostimulating effect, it is well indicated in the treatment of gingival and periodontal diseases."
