You just inhaled Billions of CFUs ( Colony Forming Units) of Bacteria...
The average person breathes 16 times per minute, and at 6 liters per breath, that's 96 liters of air per minute, or 5,760 liters of air per hour, which is 138,240 liters per day... or you could say that the average person could inflate two hot air balloons per month
“Each of us breathe enough air to inflate two hot air balloons a month”
Imagine what we are unknowingly absorbing into our bodies!
We are what we breathe.
Considering that bacteria and fungi concentrations of approximately 1,000 to 1,000.000 CFU per liter of air indoors and 1,000 to 10,000 spores per liter of air outdoors, that is a massive amount of Airborne viruses. Airborne bacteria and fungi are known as bioaerosols. These have been of particular interest over the last several decades. There has been an epidemic or pandemic every decade for the last 40 years, SARS, MERS, H1N1, and now COVID-19.
People are concerned, especially today with all the press, and semi-forced isolation and social distancing. Bioaerosols are not prejudiced they attack without respect to age, gender, race, or societal standing.
Based on the given information on the volume of air the average person breathes in a minute, let's imagine for a minute you are on a bus, 1680 Cubic feet or approximately 47,500 liters of air, now lets put 30 people on the bus, that means the air is recycled, every 16 minutes.
“... in just 7 hours one bacterium can generate 2,097,152 bacteria.”
Now, when conditions are favorable such as the right temperature and nutrients are available, some bacteria like Escherichia coli can divide every 20 minutes. This means that in just 7 hours one bacterium can generate 2,097,152 bacteria. Bioaerosols of bacteria or viruses travel on dust particles or small respiratory droplets that become aerosolized when an infected person sneezes or coughs. Healthy people can inhale the infectious droplets, or the droplets can land on their eyes, nose and mouth.
What can be done?
We all know the simple things like not sharing personal items, drinks, eating utensils, hand towels, frequent hand washing, covering your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, but not everyone does these seemingly simple things, so what can be done?
The answer is simple but not easily achieved, the biggest problem is in mutations, and resistant strains of pathogenic bacteria, meaning the bacteria is merely wounded, not killed or eradicated, it then becomes stronger and harder to kill. Then big pharma creates new ways to kill new viruses and the cycle continues over and over... so the question is how do we kill, and not merely injure these strains thus allowing them to mutate pathogenic bacteria?
Nature has the answer!
We turn to Nature, pure and simple. Nature has provided us with the solution. It has been around since the dawn of man, it is created in man and beast alike, it is called Hypochlorous Acid or HOCl.
HOCl is found in the cells of all mammals, so it is not alien to the body and can be used safely. It is non-irritating, hypoallergenic, and yet kills all known pathogens, such as mold, bacteria, germs, and viruses. HOCl is produced as a liquid, is pH neutral, and therefore non-corrosive. HOCl can be added to water to make it potable, it can be sprayed as an aerosol to disinfect the air and surfaces it lands on, it can be used to sanitize fruits, vegetables, it can be used for the "sick building" epidemic by cleaning pipes, and HVAC systems.
So you may be asking why isn't HOCl being used to "FIX" the problem?
There are hundreds, or even thousands of uses, and unlike traditional chemicals, there are no overuse issues associated with it by creating mutations and resistant strains since the pathogens are simply destroyed. As a people our voice can be heard, and we must demand the use of HOCl disinfectants in public forums such as buses, planes, trains, automobiles, stadiums, workplaces, schools, and especially hospitals.
Knowledge is power, it replaces fear and empowers us to do great things, there is power in unity and together we can beat this and stay safe and healthy and protect our beautiful planet!
