Second Hand Cigarette Smoke
The EPA announces nearly 100 Million People are
breathing particulates daily. Click here for the full story.
Regarding Second Hand Smoke:
Second Hand Smoke has been classified by the
EPA as a "Group A" human carcinogen meaning there is no safe
level of exposure! We at Wein Products support the efforts by
Americans For Nonsmokers' Rights to bring this important
safety message to you.
DISCLAIMER: "No air filtration or air
purification system has been designed that can eliminate all
the harmful constituents of secondhand smoke. A reduction
of the harmful constituents of secondhand smoke does not
protect against the disease and death caused by exposure to
secondhand smoke. The U.S. Surgeon General has determined
secondhand smoke to cause heart disease, lung cancer, and
POSITION STATEMENT ON SECOND HAND SMOKE
Dear Mr. Alpert,
Wein Products has been at the forefront of innovating safe and
effective environmental technologies for many years In this
effort we have been assisted by Dr. Sergey Grinshpun's
excellent team of dedicated scientists at the University of
Cincinnati School of Environmental Health Sciences who have
tested and validated our products in their toxic aerosol risk
assessment laboratories. The studies have been peer reviewed
and published in respected journals worldwide . Two new studies
completed last year on the respiratory mask enhancement effects
of using our equipment have also been accepted for publication.
His laboratories are used by most Federal Environmental,
Occupational Health and Safety Agencies and he has been a
keynote speaker at Homeland Defense Conferences.
Our ionic air purification equipment has been comparison tested
against other manufacturers in Dr. Grinshpun's laboratories and
in some notable cases is ten times more effective than a
leading national brand.
Even so, while air purification technology is rapidly gaining
ground and while our systems have been shown in Dr. Grinshpun's
laboratories to substantially (98%) reduce the concentrations
of all aerosols from .04 (virus sized) to 3 microns. This
includes a large portion of the components in second hand
This reduction cannot protect users of our equipment nor anyone
else's from this environmental toxic carcinogen since any
exposure is dangerous to human health.
Classification of second hand smoke as a type "A" aerosol toxin
makes this a very tough nut to crack but we are working on
Please let me know how we can support your humanitarian efforts
