OXYGEN FACTS

1. Lack of Oxygen in our universe is due to pollution, burning of fossil fuels and overall destruction of the ozone layer.

2. The ambient air that we breathe contains only 21% pure Oxygen , 78% nitrogen, and 1% trace gases.

3. Research has demonstrated that our vital lung capacity decreases 5% with every decade of life.  This lung elasticity means less Oxygen as we age.

4. Our brain, which makes up 2% of our total mass, requires 20% of the body's Oxygen needs.

5. Cancer attacks every organ in our body, except the heart because of its abnormal supply of Oxygen.

6. The human body must have Oxygen to convert the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in our diet into heat, energy, and life. This process is known as "metabolism".

7. Oxygen is a proven detoxifier and has anti-aging properties.

8. Oxygen gives the body the ability to relax and rebuild itself.  It detoxifies blood, and strengthens the immune system while healing your mind, spirit, and soul.

9. Since Oxygen is the main fuel required to Oxidize your carbohydrates, sugars, fats and proteins into energy, a lack of Oxygen will promote an inadequate Oxidation process (poor burning of foods), which will result in a lower percentage of your foods being converted into energy and high percentage of your foods turning into fat.

10. Humans can go 3 weeks without food, 3 days without water, but cannot go 3 minutes without Oxygen .

11. Every day humans take 20,000 breaths.

12. By mass, Oxygen makes up 90% of the water molecule; water makes up 65-75% of the human body.

13. Many scientists agree that most disease and infection are caused by a lack of Oxygen at the cellular level.

14. Each cell of your body is a complete living entity with its own metabolism - it needs a constant supply of Oxygen and sufficient nourishment.

15. 90% of our energy comes from Oxygen and only 10% comes from food and water.

16. The primary function of the respiratory system is to supply the blood with Oxygen in order for the blood to deliver Oxygen to all parts of the body.

17. Oxygen gets rid of toxicity. Bacteria, viruses, and parasites are destroyed in the presence of Oxygen - especially cancer.

18. Oxygen is a necessary component in every chemical reaction important to human physiology.

19. Every cell of the human body needs Oxygen to function properly because Oxygen is essential to cleansing and feeding your cells.

20. After physical exertion, the muscle burning and pain comes from the buildup of lactic acid, one of your body's waste products that is created when you don't have enough Oxygen to meet your muscles demand.

21. If the human body is stressed it will cause an Oxygen deficiency because it brings about the production of adrenaline which uses Oxygen.

22. Oxygen is an important key to good health, and research has shown that there is a significant difference in the amount of Oxygen in a strong healthy person and a chronically ill individual.
