Canned Oxygen Selling Like Hotcakes | PSFK – Trends, Ideas & Inspiration

What is selling great right now? How about plain air. Got this over at PSKF,apparently it is purported to  clear your head cure a hangover and other uses,well I’m with Dan on this one I think I’ll just take a few deep breathes and see if that will help, just a day or so ago I blogged about grapes selling for $910 dollars a bunch now blogging about selling air, however with this one too much of a good thing can kill you.

They are picking up the bottled oxygen for $16 bucks a can and Dan is correct to say that is causes health problem and one problem is this; Pulmonary Oxygen Toxicity occurs when a person is exposed to high oxygen levels for over 16 hours in pressures of 0.5 bar or more. It occurs in progressive, overlapping phases. During the first phase, fluid floods into the tissues of the lung that are normally filled with air. Bleeding then occurs between the alveoli, destroying capillaries and epithelial cells. Tissues begin producing in an attempt to heal the area. This causes thickening and scarring of the lungs.

    Ha! I just make sure to stop and take some deep breaths every so often, even during these smog-filled days in Seattle.

    Thanks for dropping by, I had rather just take a few deep breaths instead of buying this stuff. Seems anymore people will buy just about anything, I would say small doses won’t probably harm them but to much of a good thing “can” kill you.
