Hello again. This is the second question I have asked in this forum as a non scientist!
I have an ultrasonic humidifier at home. I keep it in the bedroom and usually have it on at night during winters.
Recently, I switched from using regular tap water to distilled water, as I read that tap water creates a mineral dust and very high amounts of PM2.5 that is very bad for children to breath. I have a 3 year old. But that’s not my main question.
Someone recently told me that ozonated distilled water, which is the only type of distilled water I’ve seen in stores (I don’t even know if there’s such a thing as non ozonated distilled water that one can buy?), has bromate in it as a result of the ozonizing.
If this is true, is my family therefore breathing in bromate (which is carcinogenic and toxic?) as a result of using the distilled water in the humidifier (which aerosolizes the water and anything present in it into the air)?
Doesn’t seem healthy!?
