Dr. Fresh Air is a Super Health Specialist and his greatest prescription is The Breath of God’s Pure Fresh Air, the Invisible Staff of Life.

The first thing we do when we are born is to take a long, deep breath and the final thing we do is take a last gasp before we stop breathing. Between birth and death our life is completely maintained by our breathing.

Dr. Fresh Air wants you to have a long, healthy life. Practice these Bragg Super Power Breathing exercises and remain conscious that with every breath you take you are bringing into your body precious life-giving oxygen.

People who fail to obey the doctor’s orders about getting plenty of fresh air day and night invite extremely severe complications. Let us examine the function of breathing. It is invisible food – the only food that we absolutely cannot live without. If we are deprived of air for over 5 to 7 minutes, death will take us. We are miracle breathing machines.

Nurture and honor your life.
Air supplies us with life-giving oxygen, which is critical for every cell in our bodies. Oxygen is carried by the blood to the lungs where a great miracle takes place: the exchange of life-giving oxygen for deadly carbon dioxide. We create deadly toxins in the process of living that CO2 carries out of our bodies. These are collected by our blood, brought to our lungs and expelled as the new life-giving oxygen enters our bloodstream. During the process of metabolism, the building up and tearing down of the cells of the body, and in the very process of living carbon dioxide poison is constantly burned up.

EPA and Air Quality Standards

Today we fortunately have national and local agencies whose job is to prevent…horrible disasters. They constantly monitor air pollutant levels and atmospheric conditions. Based on their findings, stronger guidelines and legislation will likely be implemented to protect our health. However problems do persist. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that the number of Americans living in areas that don’t meet air quality standards “was as of 1998 over 120 million.”

Over 64 urban areas don’t meet federal standards of air quality – standards which many say are not safe enough to keep our air healthy! When industrial pollutants and car exhaust react with sunlight dangerous chemical reactions occur. The most dangerous of these produces ground-level ozone O3. Ozone, the Earth’s protective layer high above our planet, guards plant and animal life from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet radiation. Yet at ground-level, where we eat, breathe and live, ozone combined with pollutants is responsible for smog’s trademark “haze.” This has a smothering toxic effect on the city dweller on smoggy days causing choking, coughing and eye-burning.

In many ways the problem of smog is worse now than 50 years ago. Hopefully we will never have air pollution disasters on the scale of some in the past. No one wants to live through suffering like that of the disastrous London smog of December, 1952. A thermal inversion settled a fog on this great city on the Thames, trapping the pollutants spewed from its heavy industries and thousands of chimneys. Before the crisis abated, more than 4,000 people were dead and countless had fallen ill. Hospitals were inundated with patients suffering from cyanosis, a condition in which a person actually turns blue for want of oxygen! Recently, the EPA approved new, more protective air quality standards.

According to EPA estimates, these new standards will prevent “15,000 premature deaths yearly, 350,000 cases of aggravated asthma and 1 million cases of decreased lung function in children.” Because of these new standards, many cities and urban areas will monitor air and become more alert to air pollution problems.
