Ozone use for elimination of Ebola in Africa

Fry Recommends Portable High Output Ozone Generator for Ebola Building Decontamination in Africa

Montrose, MI, September 24, 2014 — Certified Environmental Hygienist Phillip Fry recommends using the low-cost and portable EnviroFry commercial ozone generator for the Ebola virus decontamination of buildings, furnishings, and personal possessions in both medical treatment facilities and in Ebola patients’ homes.

High output ozone gas is an effective antimicrobial oxidizer that can be safely applied as a disinfectant, sanitizer, and decontaminating agent wherever traditional chemical or thermal sanitation methods are used.

Ozone, which has been validated by scientists since 1906 for a multitude of pathogens in an array of applications, kills all known human pathogens, such as Ebola, H7N9 avian flu, SARS, and almost all other disease-causing viruses, bacteria, and fungal species such as the health-destroying Stachybotrys, Aspergillus, Penicillium, and Chaetomium toxic mold species.

Ozone is safety-validated for medical facility environments and workers, provided that are no workers or patients are inside a contained room or building during the actual ozone treatment process, and for one to two hours afterwards. Ozone treatment area containment is best done with clear plastic sheeting, stretched wall to wall, and floor to ceiling.

Studies have proven that ozone is more efficient and has a higher oxidation kill potential than most traditional disinfectant/sanitizers (e.g. chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, peroxyacetic acid and chlorine dioxide), and its use eliminates the need to alternate different sanitizers because germs and viruses cannot build a tolerance to ozone. Ozone is non-corrosive to facility surfaces, and leaves no residue (treated surfaces never need a final fresh water rinse).

Because high output ozone gas neutralizes bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites, ozone is highly effective in the fumigation of homes and buildings, the treatment of indoor air in operating rooms, hospital patient rooms, and nursing homes, and in the disinfection of large scale air conditioning systems in hospitals.

Ozone gas decontamination of Ebola-impacted buildings and furnishings is highly affordable because a high-quality ozone generators costs only US$1,000 and the generators do not use any chemicals.

Instead of using expensive chemicals, the generators convert ordinary air into germ-killing ozone gas by temporarily adding one oxygen molecule. The primary operating cost is the very small amount electricity to run the 27 pound generator, whether from an electric utility or an electrical generator. The unit can be ordered to run on either 110 volt (USA/Canada) or 220 volts (most of the world).

The EnviroFry decontamination ozone generators can be sent via insured, low-cost postal mail delivery to Liberia or anywhere else in West Africa, the African continent, or world-wide, or via any other delivery method. For example, the U.S. postal cost to ship the ozone generator from the States to Liberia is only U.S. $180.00.

Ozone nano-bubble water: a potential treatment for severe gum infections

Tokyo, Sept 12, 2014 – (ACN Newswire) – The study, published in the journal Science and Technology of Advanced Materials, by Shinichi Arakawa and colleagues at Tokyo Medical and Dental University and Japan’sNational Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, evaluated the bactericidal activities of ozone nano-bubble water – also known as NBW3 – against the two main bacterial agents that cause periodontitis as well as its toxicity to human oral tissue cells.

Their results showed that NBW3 can kill periodontal pathogens within 30 seconds of exposure, yet has only a minor impact on the viability of oral tissue cells after 24 hours of exposure.

Based on their in vitro results, the researchers conclude that NBW3 could become a valuable tool for treating periodontitis. However, since in vitro models cannot be directly compared to real-life clinical situations in which oral antiseptics are diluted with saliva, the authors recommend further research to determine the extent to which NBW3’s potency may be reduced by the saliva of dental patients.

Periodontitis is an inflammation of the oral tissues that surround and support our teeth – it is caused by bacteria residing in “biofilms” or dental plaque.

The traditional first step of periodontal treatment involves “mechanical debridement” (i.e. scraping away the dental plaque and dental calculus). Various antiseptics and antibiotics have been used to supplement mechanical debridement.

But antibiotic therapies have several significant drawbacks, such as the selectivity of antimicrobial action, possible development of resistant bacteria, and risk for adverse host reactions. For these reasons, the topical use of a low-cost, broad-spectrum antiseptic agent with low potential for adverse reactions is preferable.

One possible alternative is ozone (O3), which has strong antimicrobial activity against bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses, and does not induce microbial resistance. Aqueous ozone is highly biocompatible with oral tissue cells. However, ozonated water must be used within the first 5 to 10 minutes after production to assure its potency.

To address this obstacle, co-author M. Takahashi and K. Chiba developed a patented procedure to produce ozone nano-bubble water. NBW3 retains its oxidation ability for more than six months if protected from exposure to ultraviolet rays. Its high stability allows for the bottling and use of NBW3 as a disinfectant solution.
