"Germ Free"? No Such Thing

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are NO aerosols or foggers that can kill airborne flu viruses. Coughing, sneezing and breathing can send viruses up to 160'. Getting the disease causing germs out of the air isn't easy. With the H1N1 flu outbreak this year, many products made claims that they can kill viruses. Some sprays claim to disinfect rooms as "air cleaners". What the sprays actually do is settle on hard surfaces attracting viruses which is the same thing ordinary disinfectants do. It's impossible to kill germs in mid-air. The EPA is investigating fake germ-killing claims and violators can face fines of up to $7,500.00 for each item sold.
