So which is it: Are they making false claims and the lamps DON'T produce ozone or are their claims accurate and their lamps DO produce ozone?
Any device that creates negative ions, which are a byproduct of most electronics create in at least a small amount ozone. For children or adults with asthma these types of air purifiers and devices when used in an improperly ventilated room can actually worsen their condition. So sticking one of these lamps on your child's nightstand won't be helping them with any breathing conditions they may have, but actually may make things worse. Don't always believe all of the hype associated with new science findings. Many people in the early 1900's thought that radiation was healthy.
Yeah 5 minutes minutes of hunting around shows that these claims are unsubstantiated. So NO they do not work as negative ion generators, in which case, they also do not generate ozone.
There are no reputable scientific studies to substantiate the claims of the people who sell crystal salt lamps. While crytal salt does contain sodium chloride there is simply no evidence from any study that the heat from a 15 watt bulb would be enough to produce any measurable effect. Lisa Barger's Alternative Medicine was unable to locate any study or test.
Those selling the item, made from crystal rocks, often claim that a salt lamp is beneficial to one's health and overall well being. While science has refuted these claims, these natural light fixtures can make an interesting addition to a home.
