Trillions upon trillions of viruses fall from the sky each day, but little is known about their realm....
Do you know what's in the air you breathe? Scientists have surmised there is a stream of viruses circling the planet, above the planet’s weather systems but below the level of airline travel. Very little is known about this realm, and that’s why the number of deposited viruses stunned the team in Spain. Each day, they calculated, some 800 million viruses cascade onto every square meter of the planet. Most of the globe-trotting viruses are swept into the air by sea spray, and lesser numbers arrive in dust storms.
Particles can travel through the air causing those prone to asthma, allergies, and chemical sensitivities to suffer. The international team of scientists found hundreds of millions of viruses in a square meter, and they counted tens of millions of bacteria in the same space.
You can take control over the air quality in your home, and remove dust, mold and pathogens from the air with a medical grade air purifier.
