The surgical masks people wear to stop the spread of diseases don't work well -- that isn't what they're designed for. Pathogens like influenza are transmitted in aerosol droplets when we cough or sneeze. Masks trap the droplets but the virus remains infectious. Scientists took on the challenge of improving the masks, using salt to turn them into virus killers.
As an owner of a salt room for four years, the changes I have seen in people has been miraculous. I have always said that salt works in so many ways. Our body is 70% salt water. Salt is a healer!!!! When you have a cut and you go in the Ocean what happens?
