Amron S-Type Ceramic Pipes
Developed by Dr. Teruo Higa and manufactured by Amron, these small disposable porous ceramic cylinders are immersed in water for drinking, bath, plants, animals, or other water to remove chlorine, trihalomethanes, benzene, toluene, and other toxins.
Trihalomethanes are a group of chemicals that occur in chlorinated water as a result of reaction between organic materials in the water and chlorine added as a disinfectant. Trihalomethanes are used in industry as solvents or refrigerants, they are environmental pollutants, and many are considered carcinogenic. The cyliners do not remove fluoride from water.
The ceramic also emits far infrared waves (heat) that gently warms objects around it. The cylinders can therefore be used to warm and sooth parts of the body, and possibly provide other benefits. Far infrared therapy in general has many uses.
