Superbacteria

Bacteria are neither plants nor animals, but belong to a separate group of living organisms.

They are everywhere, and live in colonies. Some can survive where no other living organism could (extreme temperatures, very high pressures, environments saturated with toxic substances).

However, we must remember that not all bacteria are harmful. Many are actually essential to our lives, as the human body contains huge amounts of harmless bacteria, such as those present in the gastrointestinal system, which help digestion and nutrient absorption.

But there are also harmful bacteria. Some of the diseases with the highest mortality rates that throughout history have destroyed hundreds of millions of human lives have been caused by bacteria. Some of the more well-known ones include; cholera, diphtheria, plague, dysentery, pneumonia, tuberculosis, and typhus.

The transmission of bacteria can take place in different ways depending on the source of the infection and the transmission route. One of the main transmission routes is by air, so it is important to have the air that we surround ourselves with as clear of these harmful bacteria as possible.

As shown in the table above, Airlite reduces all hazardous bacteria by up to 99.99%.
