Which Austin Air air purifier should you buy? I have a standard size here and the smaller junior unit here, but within that, within either of these models there’s several different choices that you can make. One of the most popular is the Austin Air Healthmate. The Healthmate is a great general air purifier containing, in this case, 15 pounds of activated carbon, and with the smaller ones 7 pounds of activated carbon, but containing activated carbon granules which the air is filtered through. Great choice for allergies, for pets. If you have a mildew-smelling basement, it will get that stuff out. It’s the best general unit.

They also offer a Healthmate Plus. Now this Healthmate Plus has one feature which may or may not be important to you depending on your situation. It has potassium iodide impregnated into that carbon filter. What that does for you is it’s much more efficient at taking chemicals out of the air. So chemical smells or if you have multiple chemical sensitivity, certainly take a look at the Healthmate Plus.

Other models in their lineup, they have the Allergy Machine. The Allergy Machine has 60 feet of activated carbon military cloth. Basically it’s a cloth in there which contains activated carbon which the air is pushed through or pulled through there for cleanse the air. That’s best if you’re mostly concerned about getting a larger particulate such as pollen. If you’re an allergy sufferer, that unit is specifically designed for you.

The Pet Purifier, another Austin Air model, the Pet Purifier is specifically designed for pets. It’s very, very good at getting out pet dander, very good at getting rid of animal smells that may or may not be in your home.

Then the top level air purifier for Austin Air is the National Sleep Foundation Air Purifier. I understand that Austin Air spent some time getting a machine qualified for the National Sleep Foundation because their standards were extremely high. What you get with that unit is you get a five-stage filtration. It has both the activated carbon granules such as in the Healthmate, and it also has the impregnated carbon military cloth such as in the Allergy Machine. You’re getting the both of best worlds.

Now with any of these machines you get 60 square feet of HEPA filtration. They certainly meet or far exceed the HEPA standard. They are all made in the United States. They all have a five-year warranty. They all have a five-year warranty on the filters themselves.

Vinegar Kills Tuberculosis and Other Mycobacteria

WASHINGTON, DCFebruary 25, 2014 The active ingredient in vinegar, acetic acid, can effectively kill mycobacteria, even highly drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis, an international team of researchers from Venezuela, France, and the US reports in mBio, the online open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology.

Acetic acid might be used as an inexpensive and non-toxic disinfectant against drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) bacteria as well as other stubborn, disinfectant-resistant mycobacteria.

Work with drug-resistant tuberculosis bacteria carries serious biohazard risks. Chlorine bleach is often used to disinfect TB cultures and clinical samples, but bleach is toxic and corrosive. Other effective commercial disinfectants can be too expensive for TB labs in the resource-poor countries where the majority of TB occurs.

Marijuana May Hurt The Developing Teen Brain


The brain of a teenager has a lot of developing to do. It must transform from the brain of a child into the brain of an adult. And some researchers worry how marijuana might affect that crucial process.

“Actually in childhood our brain is larger,” says Krista Lisdahl, director of the brain imaging and neuropsychology lab at University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. “Then during the teenage years our brain is getting rid of those connections that weren’t really used, and it prunes back. It actually makes the brain faster and more efficient.”
