Ozone is simply an oxidant, and a damned good one at that. It is neither "good" nor "bad" except in context.... As an oxidant, it clearly has germicidal effects... eg. pools and spas have "ozonators" to help keep the water clean. And the active component in such devices is often just a UV lamp... I was questioning whether "surf" or "oceans" produce ozone in significant amounts. So far, my 'net search does not back up that theory; what I see is that ozone is produced primarily in the stratosphere as a result of UV light acting on oxygen. Of course, there are lightning storms, electrical motors, etc. rafe b. - Please do not include an entire message in your response. Delete the excess. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
