Living is a lot like flying.
Everything’s fine as long as it’s in balance.
Looks easy, feels easy – until it goes wrong. And sooner or later, something always does.
Off-course or off-colour – the tiniest thing could bring you down. And they don’t come any tinier than bacteria and viruses.
So what makes you so sure that washing and scrubbing will keep you safe?
Just like flying, up in the air is where all germs live. And at less than 2 microns across, they’re so light they may never stop floating around – ready to grab hold as you walk through, billions and billions of them.
Which means clean hands are not enough. Not nearly enough. And such old-hat thinking could be the death of us.
Planes use radar to get through storms and other hazards.
But we just walk into room – blind to the norovirus or e.coli hovering in clouds – or the c. difficile and MRSA eddying by the doorway, just waiting to hijack us.
Most of the time, they just swirl off us. Another day in jeopardy, safely overcome.
But often they find a way into our bodies. A gasp of air laughing at a joke. A bite of a cheese-burger. The paper-cut on your finger from your letter of promotion. A common cold or something life-threatening in hospital? Whichever germ gets you first.
And we have no idea they’re there, those germs. Like how about a hotel room with 67.6 colony-forming units of bacteria per square centimetre? And that’s just on the TV remote.
We have no radar and germs are all over us.
Unless we get them first.
Because it IS possible to sterilise every room completely free of germs before we walk in.
No germs, no risk. Safe.
A completely different approach to hygiene altogether. On top of the usual.
It’s done with hydrogen peroxide – misted up super-fine so it permeates everywhere – electrostatically charged so it actively grabs viruses and bacteria and oxidises them to death.
Fact: and you can ask any doctor – no germ comes back from having extra oxygen atoms shoved at it.
So we might be blind to germs, but we can take them out totally in just 45 minutes a room. Utterly gone. No hazards at all.
Pilots still have clear air turbulence and wind shear to face, invisible perils that could kill.
In a sterile room we face nothing, no hazard, no threat of infection – unless before we enter some pathogen has already found a way inside our body’s defence system.
Yes, you should wash your hands.
But against increasing antibiotic resistant mutations, a new approach is vital if we’re all going to survive.
Hydrogen peroxide is your boarding pass.
Have a pleasant flight.
