effective at disinfecting those things. we have an application for every day life. good morning. >> good morning. >> we all want to hear if it really works. we hear the doctors tell us with ebola that regular bleach can work. >> right. it's sodium hyper chloride. that's the active ingredient you're looking for. so some of these items have that in it, like this is the household bleach that we use for laundry. this is like $2.99. this is the most inexpensive way to sterilize your environment that you could find around. >> we're not just talking about ebola. >> fungus. bacteria. viruses, yes. now this spray is a 10 spkt spray with the same ingredients. and basically this is a brand

11:49 am
your swimming pools and it's what they use when you get a root canal to destroy the root. bloodstream is used all over the environment. it's very safe. it's just the concentration that we're looking at. what concentration do we use at home? >> well, this is 10%. if you had nine parties water and one part bleach, that's effective. when they have the aids and hiv outbreak, the virus very important not to spread it throughout hospital bed to hospital bed. they would use a 10% bleach solution to sterilize the room before the next patient had to use the room. this has been around if r a long, long time. it's just now getting noticed again because of all the virus and bacteria. >> everybody keeps telling us to wash our hands all the time.

11:54 am
doctors say it's rare, but in some people, the implant's ball and socket start to wear. that causes small amounts of metal to enter the body and become toxic. >> in some cases the metal is released slowly and cause problems such as heart failure, heart disease, rashes or neurological symptoms. >> dr. robert bunning is the associate medical director at medstar national rehabilitation hospital. he says it's unclear how many people will get metal poisoning. there have been hundreds of cases documented and probably many more go undiagnosed. in most cases. patients can tell there's something wrong. they experience new or worsening pain in the hips or clicking in the joints. now doctors are seeing some cases where people don't have any symptoms. they're having unexplained heart disease. >> there's people with life threatening heart failure from elevateded cobalt levels.
