# I’ve heard too much oxygen is not healthy…

There has been a lot of hype about the damage that excess oxygen can do if administered inappropriately; and that is true…
… But, This is being used as a specious argument against using Brown’s Gas (BG, HydrOxy or HHO).  Anyone trying to ‘make’ this argument simply hasn’t done the math

Brown’s Gas does not contain enough ‘extra’ oxygen to be of any concern.

Since Brown’s Gas displaces only a small percentage of the air normally inhaled AND the oxygen content the Brown’s Gas is only slightly higher than air, the ‘additional’ volume of oxygen inhaled is about the same as taking two extra breaths (of oxygen) per hour.

Let’s do the Math:

Air has about 21% oxygen and 79% everything else (mostly nitrogen)

Our example adult male breathes about 300 liters per hour of air, which is about 63 liters of oxygen per hour.

Our example replaces air with Brown’s Gas (aka HydrOxy, HHO or BG), at the scientifically verified therapeutic rate of 2% hydrogen in the intake inhalation…

Brown’s Gas is 33.33% oxygen and 66.66% hydrogen.  So to achieve 2% hydrogen (in 300 liters of air), we replace 6 lph of air with hydrogen.

To do that with Brown’s Gas, we need to make 9 lph of Brown’s Gas to replace 9 liters of air, because 1/3 of Brown’s Gas is oxygen.  So 3 lph of oxygen.  Not 3 liters per minute, 3 liters per HOUR.

Most of the oxygen inhaled, when inhaling Brown’s Gas, is simply replacing oxygen that would have been breathed when breathing air (because the Brown’s Gas mixture is displacing / replacing air).

So (in our example of an adult male) of 300 liters of ‘air’ inhaled per hour, we replace 9 liters of that volume with Brown’s Gas.  3 liters of that ‘replaced’ volume is oxygen.

The difference between an air mixture that contains 21% oxygen and Brown’s Gas mixture containing 33% oxygen is 12%.

So normally, in 9 liters of air (the ‘replaced’ air), you’d have 1.89 liters of oxygen.

In 9 liters of Brown’s Gas mixture you have 3 liters of oxygen.

So in an hour, you’d have 1.11 liters of ‘extra’ oxygen.  Assuming 12 inhalations per minute, that’s 0.0015 liter (or 1.5 mL) ‘extra’ oxygen per inhalation.

A normal tidal inhalation is 500 mL, so that is why I say the amount of ‘extra’ oxygen is insignificant and anyone who is using the ‘excessive oxygen’ argument simply hasn’t done the math.

’Sites’ that say the extra oxygen in Brown’s Gas is dangerous are either ignorant or deliberately presenting miss-information.  I’ve had world-renowned Doctors assure me that the amount of ‘extra’ oxygen in the Brown’s Gas is insignificant.

For example, if you are normally inhaling a nitrogen:oxygen mixture containing 20% oxygen, adding Brown’s gas at 2% of the inhaled breath (oxygen is only 1/3 of that 2% and 60% of that 1/3 of 2% is just replacing oxygen that you’d be inhaling from the air anyway.) increases the actual oxygen inhaled to about 20.003%.

Do you think 0.003% extra oxygen (about 1.5 mL per 500 mL inhalation) is significant?

If anything, the volume of oxygen content of Brown’s Gas helps prevent hypoxia that might be an issue with particularly sensitive people when displacing / replacing air with pure hydrogen (or some other gas).

And pure hydrogen (or some other gas) does NOT contain the extra bio-available electrons that helps the body heal, due to the ExW portion of the Brown’s Gas.

To conclude:

First the amount of ‘extra’ oxygen in the Brown’s Gas is minisule, like taking two extra inhalations per hour.

Second, ALL oxygen causes the issues they mention; your body is DESIGNED to handle oxidation…
IF it gets the nutrition (like hydrogen and carbon) it needs to properly deal with the oxidative side effects.

Third, You NEED oxygen.  You cannot LIVE without constant oxidation making energy in the cells.

There are many super oxygen therapies (and your own immunes systems that use oxygen) that help the body fight disease… Then the hydrogen does the healing.

Think about it…, if less oxygen is good, why not just stop taking in ANY oxygen (stop breathing).  I assure you that the rest of your life will be SHORT.  About 10 minutes if I recall correctly.

Fourth, The people in high altitudes live longer for other reasons than lack of oxygen, in fact, their bodies adapt (produce more RBCs) to get MORE oxygen from the rarified air…

Fifth, Athletes go to high altitudes to train, because their bodies adapt (make more red blood cells) to get more oxygen from the ‘thinner’ air they inhale.
So when they subsequently compete at lower altitudes, they get MORE oxygen because the oxygen content of the air is higher at low altitudes.  The extra oxygen increases athletic performance.

It’s all about balance and the body is very good at balancing, adapting to it’s environment.

Another way to do the math is using the calculations the anesthesiologists use.  Which tells us that with the BG containing 33% oxygen and the air containing 21% oxygen that the net increase in oxygen inhaled goes from 21% to 21.23%.

What I keep trying to point out is that there really is no ‘extra’ oxygen.  All you are doing (when inhaling 2% hydrogen in your intake breath) is replacing 3% of the (79:21) nitrogen:oxygen mixture you normally inhale with a (67:33) hydrogen:oxygen mixture.

So of a tidal inhalation of 500 mL, you’d inhale 15 mL of BG, replacing 15 mL of ‘air’.
The normal air mixture is 21% oxygen or about 3 mL of oxygen per 15 mL.
BG is 33% oxygen, so about 5 mL of the 15 mL is oxygen.
The EXTRA oxygen inhaled is (5-3) = 2 mL per inhalation.

The oxygen normally inhaled is 105 mL per breath, so you are only inhaling 0.2% more oxygen.  This does not qualify as ‘excess oxygen’ or cause ‘oxygen toxicity’.

And I KNOW that many people will think “if some is good, MORE is better”

Which is why I limit the maximum HHO production to 833 milliliters per minute.  That volume will make a potentially explosive (dangerous) mixture (hydrogen exceeding 4.7%) but it will not be a TOXIC mixture because the oxygen difference is still well under 0.5% increase.  So about 21.45% even if they inhale 100% of the HHO the AquaCure can produce.

And frankly, I don’t generally tell people this, but even if they inhale 100% of the gas that the AquaCure can produce, most of the time the inhaled mixture is NOT explosive anyway.  Because they inhale too fast.

The AquaCure is producing (at 100%) 833 mL/m of gas, which is about 558 mL of hydrogen per minute or 9.3 mL of hydrogen per second.  Most people inhale their tidal breath in 2 seconds, which means they inhaled about 19 mL of hydrogen in their 500 mL tidal breath…  Which is 3.8% hydrogen in the intake air… Well under the 4.7% explosive limit of hydrogen in air.

And… For those thinking that “more is better” there IS an applicable logic to that, but in TIME not VOLUME.

Because once the blood is saturated with hydrogen (after about 15 minutes of inhalation) any excess hydrogen is EXHALED, so putting in more VOLUME of hydrogen is absolutely useless and (if to high could potentially be explosive).
BUT… when you stop inhaling, the hydrogen in your blood goes to zero in about 15 minutes, so you actually get ‘more’ therapeutic value by inhaling LONGER, not inhaling MORE.  In other words it’s safer AND more effective therapeutically to inhale longer than to inhale ‘more’.

I design for SAFETY and then I design for REDUNDANT safety and then I TEACH super conservative safety.  No one else does all that.
