They say “prevention is better than the cure” – and nowhere in history is that saying more appropriate than today. We live in a world where the threat of viruses, bacterial infections and other contaminants is very real. Public health services are stretched all across the world, and the cost of dealing with the aftermath of viruses and bacterial infections is high. Though there might be treatments available for many of these illnesses, exercising an ounce of prevention is always advisable. Investment in a hypochlorous acid generator is a cost-effective solution worth considering for most commercial and industrial settings.
The sad reality is that, even in institutions where clean, uncontaminated, safe water is a must, such as health care facilities, far too many such organizations lack that basic amenity. According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) report, that’s a reality in 38% of the more than 66,101 health care facilities analyzed, in more than fifty-four countries.
And that reality (more of a nightmare, actually!) isn’t just restricted to health care settings. The WHO estimates that unsafe food is the cause of more than 200 diseases, resulting in over US$110-billion in lost productivity each year. And the root cause of contaminated food?
“…usually infectious or toxic in nature and caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites or chemical substances entering the body through contaminated food or water.”
A high-quality HOCL generator is the answer to dealing with unclean and untreated water.
The use of unclean and unsafe water in our hospitals, schools, restaurants and food processing plants delivers scary consequences. Whether it’s for drinking, cooking or washing and bathing, unsafe water brings with it a host of contaminants, including:
– Bacteria – such as Salmonella, Campylobacter, and Enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli
– Viruses – including Norovirus and Hepatitis A virus
– Parasites – such as Echinococcus spp, or Taenia solium, Ascaris, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba histolytica or Giardia
– Prions – such as Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, or “mad cow disease”) and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (vCJD)
A hypochlorous acid generator is a low-cost approach to implementing anti-bacterial strategy to treating water. It does that through the electrolysis of salt and water on premises. Businesses can use these revolutionary technologies to generate a stable HOCl molecule that is electrically neutral and with high oxidation potential, contributing to its effectiveness against microbial pathogens.
Many establishments use alcohol-based chemicals and products to sanitize the hands, products and surfaces on their premises. Longer-term use of these products often leads to skin rash and other irritations. In many instances, high-chlorinated water is used to wash food products. Dental clinics use chemical-based water to rinse patient’s during and after treatments. A high-quality HOCL generator is a better solution.
These devices deliver highly sanitized, clean water, free from dangerous viruses and bacteria, without the use of hazardous chemicals. HOCL water is also highly effective as a deodorant, and is ideal for dealing with unpleasant smells emitted by methyl mercaptan, and ammonia, which are common chemicals used in the food processing industry.
Not being proactive about treating your water supplies can lead to unthinkable consequences, including brain diseases, lung problems, respiratory illnesses, and even other health issues resulting in the unthinkable – death or long-term disabilities.
