We just got an email about this cool light bulb that kills viruses and thought we’d pass it along in case you want to check it out. We’ve used it for two years to contain our kitty litter box smell and give our plants full spectrum light and it works well so we are getting a few more to protect against the nasty virus that is around.
The Pure-Light Super-Oxygen light bulbs, and surface coating technology… have shown the ability to kill ALL harmful viruses and bacteria that it has been tested against within hours on surfaces and in the air within 10 ft of the bulb and a coated surface when exposed to a light source, with the PLT bulbs actually being the light source. Hundreds of studies on the technology behind the Pure-Light bulbs demonstrate this over and over again.
The reason for PLT technology being so effective against all harmful viruses and bacteria is because of the Super-Oxygen oxidation and cell lysing effect on viruses and bacteria of the lower order. In other words, the Super-Oxygen molecules are attracted to specifically lower class viruses and bacteria and destroys their cellular walls.
While Pure-Light technology has not been tested against the actually Coronavirus, it being a relatively new virus, The Coronavirus is a type of SARS virus and specifically, the technology behind Pure-Light was successfully tested against the SARS virus. To quote the reference:
Photocatalytic oxidation can also inactivate infectious microorganisms which can be airborne bioterrorism weapons, such as Bacillus anthracis (Anthrax) [46–48]. A photocatalytic system was investigated by Knight in 2003 to reduce the spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) on flights , following the outbreak of the disease. Similarly, in 2007 the avian influenza virus A/H5N2 was shown to be inactivated from the gaseous phase using a photocatalytic prototype system
