Sharon Kleyne Says Fall Chores Can Lead to Injury and Illness. Water Life Science® Advocate Sharon Kleyne Makes Helpful & Safety Suggestions.
Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, knows that as this November dawns, many Americans have more on their mind than the blessed end of the political campaign. Kleyne knows that millions of Americans are getting out their leaf blowers and rakes and working long hours to round up piles of beautiful leaves that just don’t seem to mind where they land! Kleyne knows this is a cherished American pastime, yet she also knows it’s a time for unexpected accidents and illness.
Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health radio program on Voice of America, is a tireless advocate of water research and education and a staunch supporter of healthy practices and habits that relieve the symptoms of dry eye disease. “Leaf blowers create a lot of dangerous dust,” said Kleyne. “Did you know,” Kleyne continued, “that the average leaf blower creates 2.6 pounds of PM10 dust emissions per hour of use?” Kleyne warned that this is more than enough dust to trigger dry eye symptoms that include reddening, irritation, soreness, and blurred vision. Objects blown from the ground can also fly up into the eye. Kleyne suggests that users of leaf blowers should always wear safety goggles as partial protection for the eye.
Sharon Kleyne also recommends the only proven, non-invasive remedy for dry eye disease, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Produced by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® consists of 100% Trade Secret, pure culture tissue grade fresh water delivered to the eyes, with no discomfort or irritation. The water is applied to the eye as a micron mist by a hand-held, personal spray humidifier specially designed by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s Research Department and bottling facility that emits a pure, pH balanced, 100% water mist for rehydrating eyes. “Also,” Kleyne added, “leaf blowers should wear a mask because all that dust will have a negative effect on lungs and could lead to more serious illness.”
Sharon Kleyne said that leaf rakers don’t get off any easier than leaf blowers. “Leaf rakers should also protect their eyes with eyewear and their respiratory system with a good mask,” Kleyne said. “Even hand-raking,” Kleyne added, stirs up dust and sends ground objects flying upward in the vicinity of the eyes. Kleyne also strongly urged leaf blowers and leaf rakers to keep a container of Bio-Med Wash®, the first portable, non-saline, non-chemical, emergency eye and wound wash product available worldwide. It is the only fast-acting, painless and effective product on the market that micron mists the eyes and wounds with Trade Secret tissue culture grade water. “In an emergency,” said Kleyne, “you don’t have time to apply a pour bottle of saline solution. You need to use something while on the go, with no fuss. You need to have something that’s effective, and that something is Bio-Med Wash®.”
Sharon Kleyne encouraged all Americans to enjoy their raking and leaf piles, but she reminded everybody to blow and rake safe, and be prepared if danger erupts. “And” she concluded, “let’s do all we can to eliminate dry eye disease, the global number one preliminary condition that leads to blindness.”
