Hello, Cecil. I have read your below article (all I could find in your archives
after searching for ‘negative oinization’),
Do “corona discharge” devices alleviate asthma?
but a question remains; What IS a “negative ion”, and how do these silly machines
make them? The below article which I found here; http://www.skepdic.com/refuge/funk36.html
seems to make it obvious that they don’t exist. If this is so, what are manufacturers putting
inside these “negative ion generators”? Somebody must have ‘reverse-engineered’ some of
these things, surely.
Also, what about sites like this; http://www.ionic-hepa-air-purifier.com/negative-ions.htm
who claim to have made and scientifically tested these things? How are they made? Are these
experiments peer-reviewed? How can ‘negative ions’ be ‘made’ if they don’t exist???
The straight dope, please!!!
