Flu virus info from the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency)

Sunday, February 17, 2013

This is the best written and illustrated brochure I have ever seen ! Way to go EPA! emoticon

Because it is a PDF file, I can't give you a direct link so........
go first to nlquery.epa.gov do a search there for UV light and air vents

What you want is this.........

This is a really clear article(with diagrams) and factual, scientifically researched information.

One funny statement said "Blame Canada!" It meant we get our cold , dry air from Canada and low humidity is why flu viruses live longer in the winter! Sorry to all Canadians!

I just had our air ducts cleaned and the company wanted to put in a UV light to kill molds , etc. in the system. I did not have them install it. $400. I did not know if it really worked. So I went poking around the internet.

Maybe next time we clean the air ducts I will have them put in the UV light..........maybe!

    Frankly, I don't believe any health info from the government, as they are in cahoots with the drug companies to sell flu and other vaccines, most of which have never been proven to work. And my daughter works for the EPA, but in air quality. Guess I'm pretty jaded about conventional stuff these days, but I read too much!
