Comparison of POSITIVE IONS & NEGATIVE IONS

  • POSITIVE IONS are harmful to the human body
  • NEGATIVE IONS are beneficial
Positive ion:an atom (or molecule) that has lost one or more electrons due to a high-energy impact. Natural forces that generate positive ions include the decay of radioactive minerals, radon gas, forest fires, lightning and ultraviolet rays.

Negative ion:an atom (or molecule) that has gained one or more extra negatively charged electrons. Negative ions are naturally generated by evaporating water.
