AbstractThis paper reviews current knowledge of air ions, with emphasis on the levels of indoor and outdoor ion concentration and possible physiological effects on human comfort, using naturally and artifically ionized air. There is appreciable evidence that for some clinical treatments the use of negative ions is beneficial; but there is evidence as well that the benefits for normal subjects are of very little or no practical significance.
