Does the ultraviolet disinfection lamp have any harm to the human body?

First of all, the disinfection principle of the ultraviolet disinfection lamp is to directly destroy the molecular structure of the harmful microorganism  (DNA) or RNA (ribonucleic acid), so that it loses the reproduction and self-replication function, so as to achieve the effect of sterilization and disinfection. Then, ultraviolet disinfection lamp can destroy the DNA of microbial protein molecules, so it is the same for the human body.

The harm of ultraviolet disinfection lamp

1. Strong anti-virus and fierce self-harm

Ultraviolet rays of ultraviolet lamp for disinfection are destroying the molecular structure of viral proteins, and also destroying the proteins of our eyes, which will cause their coagulation and degeneration, corneal necrosis, and skin cancer.

2. The 185nm mercury lamp has ozone, which increases the risk

Ozone is generated when the low-pressure mercury lamp is working. When the indoor ozone concentration reaches 2mg/m3 or more, it will cause headache, chest pain, and decreased thinking ability. In severe cases, it may cause emphysema and pulmonary edema. At the same time, it will stimulate and damage the deep respiratory tract, have a slight stimulating effect on the eyes, damage the central nervous system, destroy the body's immune function, and induce lymphochromosome lesions.

3. Careless operation, easy to accidentally hurt

The purpose of safe disinfection can only be achieved if the ultraviolet disinfection lamp operates properly on the use space, the object to be irradiated, the duration of irradiation, the distance of irradiation, the period of irradiation, and post-treatment. Otherwise, the effect will not be achieved, but the risk of damage.
