How it works…

Airwise works "outside the box", so it's not necessary for polluted air to actually enter the purifier. Instead, Airwise creates inductive warmth, drawing humidity into the purifier. When humidified air enters the target area, the ultraviolet, germicidal lamp activates the catalyst to produce superoxide ions and hydroxyl radicals. These molecules

then migrate throughout the area (will not go through walls or closed doors, but will go around corners) to neutralize toxins by breaking them up on a molecular level, destroying any micro- organism down to .001 micron. Wisepointe is the added benefit—increasing the speed at which particulate matter is taken out of your breathing space.

Airwise sets the standard for the industry with a proven combination of technologies that effectively control the three major types of pollution:

1. Small Particulate Matter
Less than 1% of particulate matter measures more than 10 microns and is visible to the naked eye. Examples include pollen, ash, dander and aerosol mist. By contrast, over 98% measures less than 1 micron and would require a powerful microscope to be seen (a human hair averages 40 to 120 microns across). Some examples include fumes, viruses, mold and bacteria. The small size of these particles makes them detrimental to your health as they easily infiltrate the lungs. Compounding this is the fact that they tend to stay airborne, increasing the likelihood of ingestion.
2. Microbes and Parasites These biological contaminants include bacteria, protozoa and fungi/mold, with a range of sizes from 0.001 to 10 microns. They rely on moisture and humidity to survive. Dust mites feed on decomposing skin and live and thrive in bedding. Some molds produce mycotoxins and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
3. Gases and Odors
Indoor gases, such as formaldehyde, chloroform, benzene, and hydrogen sulfide are released from furniture, carpeting, cleansers, printers, insulation, insecticides and hair sprays. VOCs, including benzene and trichlorethylene, contain carbon and easily evaporate into the air, making them readily inhalable. The odors that we all rather not smell are typically VOCs or other noxious gases.

Formaldehyde among substances added to cancer list

Formaldehyde, a chemical used in embalming fluid and in consumer products is known to cause cancer, according to a new report from the federal government.

The 12th Report on Carcinogens, released Friday by the National Toxicology Program, officially added the chemical and several others to the list of substances known to cause cancer. The move comes after years of delays prompted by critics, including the chemical industry, who say the studies used to establish the link to cancer are not based on science.

Formaldehyde is a naturally occurring chemical found in the environment in small amounts. But more concerning are the levels of the chemical used in household products such as some nail polishes, hair straightening products, pressed wood products as well as industrial glues and car exhaust. Formaldehyde is the main ingredient in embalming fluid used in the funeral industry. It is also a large component of the 'new car smell' – composed of fumes emanating from carpets, upholstery, plastics and glues used in new cars.

Keep new cars and newly carpeted areas well ventilated, ask manufacturers if their products are formaldehyde free, and ensure that if you work around formaldehyde, that your employer is following all OSHA regulations related to the chemical.

The report also added inhalable glass wool fibers —used in insulation, aristolochic acids—used in certain herbal remedies and teas and cobalt-tungsten carbide powders to the list of known carcinogens.
