|Does the word "pollution" evoke a passive response from you? I am embarrassed to say that before this article, "pollution" was an impotent word further weakened by its necessity - we depend on engines of all shapes and sizes to function in modern society. |
After completion of research, "pollution" now elicits a bittersweet awareness, as it legions an invigorated ominous significance.
Every day of our lives, we obliviously inhale poisonous substances into our lungs - poisonous entities with devastating long term and/or immediate life-threatening affects.
The process of burning gasoline or diesel in our engines produces:
· Toxic gases known as carbon monoxide
· Poisonous nitrogen oxides, a main source of urban smog
· Lethal unburned hydrocarbons, a main source of urban ozone
How toxic is carbon monoxide?
Gasoline and diesel, mostly carbon by weight, equate to 5-6 pounds (2.5 kg) of carbon per gallon. The U.S. alone releases approximately 2 billion pounds of carbon into the environment each day, and as it burns, it turns into massive amounts of invisible carbon monoxide gas.
If carbon monoxide released were solid carbon, it would be infamously noticeable, likened to throwing a 5-pound bag of dry cement out the window for every gallon of fuel burned. In the US, that would be equivalent to 333 million bags of dry cement spewed daily onto our roads and into our environment.
When we breathe carbon monoxide, the carbon molecules attach to our hemoglobin, taking up all the oxygen binding locations that are used to release oxygen to our lungs and other tissues in our body. With excessive exposure, our blood loses its ability to transport oxygen, thus inevitable death by suffocation.
How lethal is smog and ozone?
Nitrogen oxides and unburned hydrocarbons are main sources for smog and ozone. Ozone an "unfriendly" pollutant at ground level, is caused by the reaction between engine exhaust and light.
Inflammation and abnormal accumulation of fluid in our lungs, instigated by both smog and ozone, aggravates the effects of asthma and other respiratory problems. As repeated ozone exposure further desecrates our lungs, it becomes more difficult to breathe, and our bodies increasingly labor to extract oxygen. Years later, we can still experience tiredness resulting from the damage done to our lungs.
In addition, the corrosive nature of ozone damages foliage, including agricultural crops and forest vegetation, sources of oxygen for our environment.
But, what can we do? Engines are part of our daily lives.
Time for an emergency call to our Angel of Mercy, the Fuel Doctor!
The Fuel Doctor says help is available. Ironically, we can do something to alleviate these toxic, poisonous, and lethal effects with very little effort - something that will result in longevity, not only for ourselves, but also the earth and future generations of inhabitants -- our children and grandchildren.
A small pill, the size of a penny, simply popped into the tank at each fill up, produces healthy detoxifying results. Independent tests showed that this little pill:
· Reduced toxic carbon monoxide emissions by 78%
· Reduced poisonous nitrogen oxides by 73% (main source of urban smog)
· Reduced lethal unburned hydrocarbons by 24% (main source of urban ozone)
The Fuel Doctor highly recommends immediate proactive usage.
Known as the UBiee Power Pill, it guarantees to reduce identified toxic emissions, along with an added benefit of increased fuel economy and reduced maintenance costs - a welcome relief for soaring record high fuel prices.
