massive amounts of pollutants that can irritate those with allergies and asthma, plus cause sneezing, watery eyes, coughing, throat irritation, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, fever, allergic reactions and digestive problems. poor air quality can even cause fatigue. always tired? it could be from the air in your home. it's time to purify the air in your home. introducing the nuwave oxypure smart air purifier. the most advanced home air purifier ever created. oxypure delivers healthier, cleaner and purified air for you and your family. oxypure features an unheard of five stage filter system, making it the most advanced air purifier available. that's how oxypure removes over 99% of airborne h3n2 virus and bacteria like staph and black mold. already know you'd like cleaner air in your home? then why wait? head online now for a special offer that includes up to nine years of filters absolutely free. now, here's deborah norville on why she believes your home should have
a nuwave oxypure. - hello and welcome. when's the last time you wondered about the air quality in your home? perhaps since the days of the pandemic, you actually have wondered if there were a way to keep your home healthier and safer. today, we're going to learn about the nuwave oxypure air purifier. when there's a spill on the counter, it's easy to see what to clean, but you can't see viruses or microorganisms or pollutants in the air. and according to the environmental protection agency, they're there. in an agency report on air quality, the epa advised that indoor air, the air inside your home, could have up to five times more pollutants than what's outside. five times. the world health organization advises that particulate matter in the air can penetrate deep into the lungs, entering the body, affecting the cardiovascular and other systems. so air may look clean, but this really can be a situation where what you can't see can hurt you. the epa says poor household air
can be a cause of eye, nose or throat irritations, or headaches and dizziness. all big problems for those with allergies. - i'm dr. michael messing. i'm an emergency room radiologist. i think as the air quality has become much more polluted over the years, statistically there has been more patients coming to the emergency room with respiratory difficulties. we see children, teenagers, adults, and the elderly. every age group comes into the emergency room with respiratory problems all year long. we see children that come into the emergency room with asthma, children who are affected by allergens or other air quality problems. having an oxypure air purifier would certainly help them during the day n th'rng. well, a lot of allergic problems and asthmatic problems are caused by allergens and toxins that are found in the home. the oxypure air purifier would certainly benefit them in their homes. it would help to remove the allergens, the bacteria, viruses, and other particles that are in the air
that may be contributing to the respiratory problems and their general wellbeing. i would certainly recommend the oxypure air purifier to my patients or anyone to improve the air quality in their home or in their office. - joining me now is oxypure expert, beau rials, to explain how the nuwave oxypure works. beau, good to have you here. - deborah, it's great to be here. - first question. air purifiers are pretty basic, right? dirty air goes in, clean air comes out. - actually not at all. in fact, many air purifiers have a real problem, deborah. you see, they're designed to catch larger particles like tobacco smoke, dust and pollen, which are much bigger than pathogen. so things that are very small like viruses and germs can often pass right through those filters and go right back into the air that you and i breathe. well, the oxypure on the other hand was designed to not only be highly effective against tobacco, smoke, dust and pollen, but also to target and actually remove viruses and germs as well. - if viruses and germs can pass through a filter,
it sort of defeats the purpose of having an air purifier. - exactly right. and that's why i'm so excited about the oxypure smart air purifier from nuwave. now, everyone knows nuwave as a leader in innovation. and now we have developed an air purifier that's simply light years ahead of competitors. for example, oxypure has not one filter, not two, not three. it has a five stage filter system. - and each of those five does something different, i assume. - absolutely. for example, one of those stages is the bio-guard filter. now, get this, deborah. it uses an 8,000 volt electrostatic charge to actually clear 99.68% of viruses like h3n2, plus 99.99% of bacteria like staph and mold like (indistinct). - all right. well, let's hear from some more people who are already using the oxypure. - [kirk] oxypure remove those dust and pollen is i think one of the main reasons that we thought about getting air purifiers.
we don't want aila inhaling all of this junk. - now, the fact that oxypure gets rid of all the virus and bacteria that can be floating around the air is very important. - we want to try and protect our baby. we want to try and protect ourselves. - [narrator] dr. fost was cited in new jersey monthly magazine's top doctors. - if you have breathing issues or allergies that are aggravated by dust, pet dander, mold or pathogens, a powerful air purifying system is an important first step in reducing your symptoms. oxypure removes and kills viruses like influenza and bacteria like staph. oxypure removes 95% of formaldehyde. we're talking about fumes from the normal cleaning products you use to clean your home. oxypure can really help in reducing these issues. - and since most people spend 90% of their time inside, the quality of indoor air can directly impact one's health. that's one reason so many people are checking out the nuwave oxypure. - [narrator] as you're watching tv right now, take a deep breath. you may be surprised to learn
that the air you just breathed in is filled with all kinds of nasty pollutants. don't take our word for it. the united states environmental protection agency says the air in your home can have as much as five times more pollutants than outdoors. five times. the epa says there are two categories of pollutants in your home's air. first, biologic pollutants that include bacteria, molds, viruses, animal dander, dust mites, and pollen. the epa says the second category of air pollutants in your home are chemicals that include carbon monoxide, ozone, volatile organic compounds from chemical cleaners, pesticides, even arsenic from treated wood. so in your home, every breath, every day, you and your family are breathing in a massive amount of pollutants that can irritate those with allergies and asthma. plus cause sneezing, watery eyes, coughing, throat irritation, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, fever, allergic reactions and digestive problems. plus poor air quality can even cause fatigue. always tired? it could be from the air in your home.
