Is ion deficiency a threat to your life when you drive? (Nov, 1979)

I knew it couldn’t be my fault that I’m a bad driver. It’s those damn ions!

Is ion deficiency a threat to your life when you drive?

Do you lose your temper or your judgment or even your concentration when driving? If you do, it may be because you’re breathing unbalanced ion-starved air.

Think of it this way. When you’re walking in the mountains or by the seashore the negative-positive ion balance in the air is ideal, with negative ion density between 2000/ 4000 per cubic centimeter. (In a moving car or other vehicle there is usually only 80-100 negative ions per cubic centimeter. And far too large a proportion of positive ions.) The important thing is: Negative ions are good for you and help you; positive ions make you grumpy and tired and affect your judgment.

Now, space age technology has produced the Bionaire 300 so small it fits into the palm of your hand and weighs only 4 oz.

The Bionaire 300 fits on your dashboard without obstructing your view. No interference with your radio or CB. Keep your windows open or closed.

The Bionaire 300 has 100% solid state circuitry. No moving parts to wear out. Tested in the coldest Canadian weather, it is built to give you many years of maintenance-free service. It has a multi-point ion source and provides the highest ion output of any self-contained unit of its size.

The Bionaire 300 can be used with total peace of mind. No exposed high voltage wires, no sharp corners, no light reflecting surfaces to distract you.

The Bionaire 300 is completely self-contained, so no under-dash power pack is needed. You don’t drill or tap the ignition coil. To install, simply attach the two-wire connection to your fuse box or ignition system. The unit operates automatically when you switch on the ignition. The solid state pilot lamp tells you its working. Bionaire 300 uses exactly V2 watt DC power. It may well be the best investment in car safety you ever make.

New! A home-office unit the size of a cigar box that is efficient for a 15′ x 15′ room.

    If you could project it to every car around you it would do more good!

    No….. ion deficiency isn’t……. but the idiot on the cell phone in front of me is a threat to my life.

    A study carried out by the Faculty of Medicine at my alma mater found evidence that high levels of positive ions carried by fohn winds can trigger migraines in susceptible people. Bad tempers, though…I’m not sure there’s any evidence for that.

    So, since I’m driving a Saturn Ion does that mean I don’t need one of these things?

    Wow! It even works with my windows open, and I can still use my CB.

    Whatever happened to ionizers, anyway? They used to be advertised everywhere, then it disappeared overnight sometime in the ’80s.

    That’s weird. My current Bionaire air filter says it RELEASES positive ions to help settle dust and make it attractive to the HEPA filter. Are positive ions from my air filter the reason I am grumpy at home, and negative ions in beer why I feel so good when I’m out ? Is Bionaire trying to kill me ? Did they mention it causing paranoia ?
