Sorry I thought you represented the company. I've done the research it's really about effectively blocking light and an airtight seal. Candidly, the research about Miron Glass is pretty scant in my opinion. IF you read their quote carefully you'll that they say that the research "MAY" show that Miron glass has such properties. Anyway this is probably more information than you are looking for...I just think that it's important that consumers be provided the facts. UV and O2 are the big culprits in breaking down organic matter. That and the fact that glass is inert is another big selling point. Thanks for your reply and let me know if you have any questions for me. -JyARman Thanks man. Where do I setup my own thread?
