Negative ions have a positive effect on our body and the air around us. In nature, there is an abundance of negative ions near the ocean, in the rain forest or near a waterfall. Not only do negative ions clean the air, our bodies respond in positive ways to the effects of negative ion exposure. Corporate farming restricts access to natural negative ions and their benefits. Our enclosed farming systems trap dust, pathogens and ammonia creating an unhealthy environment. Dust and ammonia is a leading cause to COPD in farm workers. Scientific research shows that enriching the air with negative ions has a positive effect on air quality. Inhaling negatively ionized air promotes the concentration of oxygen in the blood, thereby improving the functioning of the organs and improves cell metabolism.
Freshlight utilizes a new ionization technology to create negative ions which has been proven to clean the air of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (dust) and ammonia. Negative ions attach themselves to positively charged dust particles creating a magnet effect. Dust particle are attracted to each other, become heavy and fall to the ground. Dust is a major carrier of pathogens. By removing the dust, we remove the mechanism that transports pathogens. Numerous studies have shown negative ionization’s ability to kill pathogens, i.e. bacteria, mold, fungus and viruses, both airborne and on surfaces. Cleaner air reduces stress in the animals improving their bio performance. This leads to lower mortality rates, better feed conversion, lower rejection rates and greater profits.
