Columbia University Far-UVC Light Study Shows Promise As Wellness Design-Based Covid Killer

Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could all worry less about catching Covid at home? Or the flu? Or any number of other illnesses? Columbia University professor David Brenner has a long-term solution. It’s called far-UVC light and he’s been researching it for years. The early studies showed that it could defeat drug-resistant superbugs. His latest study shows that it can also defeat the virus that causes Covid. While we wait for it to commercialize and reach affordability — hopefully soon! — there are similar technologies emerging that we can purchase now. Check out my latest Forbes.com article on this topic.

I shared a preview earlier, which you can check out here, but I’d really love for you to read this write-up on the book from Business of Home, a respected digital design magazine.

You could be the next winner!
