That is an astounding statement especially coming from educators. In the USA, a bipartisan bill is currently making its way through congress to remove a tanning tax that effectively discouraged the use of solarium machines.
Even more reassuring news comes from Columbia University. They patented a FAR-UVC light that is safe to be exposed to 24/7 for use in hospitals and public places to control the spread of deadly germs and viruses. It’s so safe to use, optometrists treat viruses by shining the light directly into the eye.
Most doctors in Russia and Cuba are experts in medical ozone therapy as it is part of their education in medicine. Quite conspicuously, Health Canada does not take an official position and most provincial medical licensing authorities now allow its use. MD doctors can bill patients directly for ozone treatment and take private training courses in Canada, Germany and the USA.
The invention of the UV LED (Light Emitting Diode) crystal has the most exciting potential because it can be pulsed to make it highly biologically active. Without drawing blood, UV intravenous fiber optic LED light is now introduced into a vein to kill viruses and enhance the immune system. You know that this type of light must be effective when single quartz UVB LED costs over $150 and an average Christmas tree LED is less than ten cents.
So just who are we to believe? To put all of this info into a local Canadian perspective, I will leave you with a message from a professor you may be familiar with. I asked Dr. Magda Havas who taught the effects of environmental contaminants such wireless radiation, UV and ozone at Trent University. I asked her what is the current situation in regards to the dangers of ultraviolet light.
She replied: I was taught that both ozone and ultraviolet light were harmful to humans and should be avoided as much as possible and this is what I taught my students as well. However, new information is now available that causes us to question some of these concepts. While I still believe these two agents are harmful, there are exceptions and the complete story is more complex than I had originally assumed.
