   This is something that was brought to my attention by one of my friends on LJ, and there is not really enough being said about the prevention of this and other virus's that seem to be disrupting our lives. I am not attempting to give any one any plugs or promotions, I just have this urge to help any way I can with what knowledge I have acquired in the field, and personal experience. I have been helping people with IAQ "Indoor Air Quality" for several years now and have found that we are not very well educated in prevention other that washing our hands. Not Good Enough.
    MRSA
, as well as some other viruses and bacteria have become a serious problem. Methicillin-resistant Staphyloccus aureus was in itself very bad, but now we are having a new strain that is considered even worse. This is a flesh eating disease that is running rampant in certain segments of our society and not just geographically located. Staph virus lives and travels mainly in our sinus cavities and waits for an opportunity to infect us through open sores, cuts, scrapes, etc. Keeping clean hands does help. A. Streptococcal (strep) infections infections are caused by group A. Strepotococcus, a bacteria responsible for a variety of health problems. These infections can range from mild skin infection or sore throat to severe, life threatening conditions such as toxic shock syndrome and necrotizing fasciitis, commonly know as the flesh eating disease. Now we have a MRSA strain. When our children or us adults pick up this virus at school, gym, or at work we usually transport this among other bacteria and viruses to our Humble Abodes and spread it around. Children as well as adults have this habit of picking our noses and not always washing our hands afterwards, I have even see people driving along with their finger up to the 2nd. knuckle in their nose. How was it expressed "Ewwwwwee". There are a few products on the market that can assist with these, I have personally tested several so call purification systems and studied them quite hard. There have been more gimmicks than I like to contemplate, but there are a couple really good ones, that actually work and do what they say. One of these is the "Guardian Air" by RGF.  www.rgf.com. This will install into the Air Conditioning Duct work, when installed properly will kill and inactivate most all bacteria, odors, viruses, etc.. This product is NASA approved and is being implemented on our cruise ships to fight the Norwalk virus that has been a major problem, as well as several schools and hodpitals across the country. There is another one call "Duct WoRx" by Ecoquest internation that is almost in my opinion as good. These items should be wired into the blower circuitry of the HVAC system. This is experience talking, don't let them tell you otherwise, But you can if you want to. Also there is a company that can do before and after testing of your Humble Abodes air quality and you will be able to see these results. They can make the unseen visible, you don't know whats in you air cause you can not see it , you just breathe it in. Somewheres around 20,000 gallons a day, we are concerned with those 8 glasses of water we drink each day as is recommended by the Doc., think about 3,400 glasses of air we inhale. This company is called "Air Advice" and any reputable HVAC company can set this up, or go online and find a dealer close to you. www.airadvice.com . Well I will comment futher on these issues if anyone has any questions, but for now I have to go out and cut some firewood, us poor folks have to do what ever we can to earn that almighty buck. I hope I have helped someone in LJ with this info. I will expain about these 3 items in more detail next time I post, some of the +'s and -'s of each. Feel free to use this info in any way. Chow as the ritzy say.
