So THAT explains it! Researchers identify “entirely new kind of chemical” that “could be” causing respiratory/heart disease AND “contributing to global warming”

​”The research team claims that the hydrotrioxides are likely to be able to penetrate into tiny airborne particles, known as aerosols, which pose a health hazard and can lead to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.” 

Entirely new kind of ‘highly reactive’ chemical is found in Earth’s atmosphere – and it could be triggering respiratory and heart diseases and contributing to global warming, scientists claim

  • Researchers showed that ‘trioxides’ are formed under atmospheric conditions
  • Troxides have three oxygen atoms and are even more reactive than peroxides
  • Researchers claim they most likely bring a host of effects we have yet to uncover

Scientists have detected a new type of extremely reactive substance in the Earth’s atmosphere that could pose a threat to human health, as well as the global climate.

Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have demonstrated that trioxides – chemical compounds with three oxygen atoms attached to each other – are formed under atmospheric conditions.   

Trioxides are even more reactive than peroxides – which have two oxygen atoms attached to each other, making them highly reactive and often flammable and explosive.
