Ozone is a pale blue gas with a distinctively pungent smell whose antibacterial properties were known even before its structure. As early as the First World War it was being used to treat infected wounds, but as technology has advanced and better options have become available, coupled with the fact that ozone is quite toxic, it is no longer used for that purpose. However, like so many redundant medical practices, it has been adopted by the alternative medicine crowd where its proponents are [...]
