What is Ozone?

Ozone is a colorless gas with a special odor that allows it to block UV rays, located in the upper layers of the atmosphere. Its molecules consist of 3 oxygen atoms. After its discovery in the 19th century, it began to be used as an effective disinfectant in hospital environments and water treatment systems. It was later used in various medical treatments and gave effective results. Today, it is produced for medical purposes by means of special generators and used as a complementary therapy in many diseases.
