was the greatest inventor the world has ever seen. His fertile
brain produced the original designs for all of the electrical
apparatus now used to transmit AC power, for motors, generators,
lighting, radio, radar, etc. The information about Tesla's genius
has finally been spreading in the last two decades, after decades
of suppression. Less well known is Tesla's involvement with ozone.
In 1896, Tesla was issued a patent for a corona discharge ozone
generator using charged metal plates to act on ambient air. He
formed the Tesla Ozone Co. in 1900 and went into production of
these units. His customers were naturopaths and allopaths who
welcomed this powerful therapy into their practices. Breathing
of ozone bubbled through olive oil and other oils was widely practiced
at this time, and the Sears catalog of 1904 offered a unit for
this purpose using eucalyptus, pine and spearmint oils. Tesla
produced a gel made by bubbling ozone through olive oil until
it solidified, and sold it to doctors. One hundred years later,
we are doing the same thing, with Nature's Gift ozonated olive
After a while, Tesla began to get complaints from some doctors
that his ozone generators were burnt out. Tesla was upset by this,
so he put on his thinking cap to invent a method of generating
ozone that would be immune to failure. He realized that it was
current flow to a hot spot on the metal anode that caused the
short and the subsequent burnout, and reasoned that the way to
achieve long life was to eliminate the current by eliminating
the metal. That left him with an electrostatic approach, which
he was fully conversant with, featuring high voltage jumping a
gap, with almost no current draw.
To carry the electrostatic charge, he used inert gases in glass
rods. This produced a cold plasma field which energized oxygen
into ozone, and resulted in a generator that proved impervious
to burnout. The unit used ambient air, and produced a small amount
of ozone as it was waved over a recumbent patient, who breathed
it in. Tesla farmed out production of these generators to a Canadian
company. There are still some of these units from the 1920s which
have been kept in use and are still working as air purifiers today,
80 years later.
Tesla felt that this invention was of such importance to human
health that he did not patent it; instead he donated it freely
to all of mankind. Unfortunately, this meant that eventually the
idea was lost, because there was no recorded patent to look up.
