Let’s get clear on ozone, ions, anions…A clear, plain-spoken definition and description required. I have heard so many cocky, self-assured, know-it-alls, speaking about all of this, and so far, not a one of them is the picture of health.

Those that might consider the Austins’ pears, tomatoes and grapes just too tempting to pass up, are stopped by an aroma that Rick calls his “liquid fence.”
