Say Goodbye to Chlorine in Your Shower and Bath with Chlorine Shower Filters and Bath Filters
Most people regard a hot shower or bath as one of life’s little pleasures. However, what many people don’t realize is the danger of chlorine in the water. Although chlorine is universally used to disinfect water, it is not safe for drinking, showering or bathing.
“Chlorine is so dangerous” according to biologist/chemist Dr. Herbert Schwartz,” that it should be banned. Putting chlorine in the water is like starting a time bomb. Cancer, heart trouble, premature senility, both mental and physical are conditions attributable to chlorine treated water supplies. It is making us grow old before our time by producing symptoms of ageing such as hardening of the arteries.”
Chlorine and Your Health
In Super Nutrition for Healthy Hearts Dr Richard Passwater shows how “the origin of heart disease is akin to the origin of cancer” Chlorination could very well be a key factor linking these two major diseases. Chlorine creates THM’s and haloforms. These potent chemical pollutants can trigger the production of excess free radicals in our bodies. Free radicals cause cell damage. Excess free radicals can cause normal smooth muscle cells in the arterial wall to go haywire, to mutate. The fibrous plaque consequently formed is essentially a benign tumor. Unfortunately, this tumor is linked with the origin of heart disease. Water Health Alert: Is Chlorine Causing Cancer
Several studies in the older literature reported that chronic exposure to chlorine concentrations of around 5 ppm caused respiratory complaints, corrosion of the teeth, inflammation of the mucous membranes of the nose, and increased susceptibility to tuberculosis in workers. American Council of Government of Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH). Documentation of the Threshold Limit Values. Fourth Edition. Cincinnati, OH. 1986.
Animal studies have reported decreased body weight gain, eye and nose irritation, and effects on the respiratory tract, liver, and kidney from chronic inhalation exposure to chlorine. Other studies have indicated that exposure to chlorine, via inhalation, may alter disease resistance in animals, with higher incidences of emphysema, pneumonia, and tuberculosis reported.

Showering may negatively affect our healthy more than we ever thought. Gasses as a rule are less soluble in hot water, and when heated, the free chlorine in water escapes into the air we breathe. When taking a shower chlorine gasses are steadily increased in the air to an extent that we breathe the harmful fumes. Regularly taking hot showers with chlorinated water could irritate the lungs and pose a health risk.
Chlorine and Aging
Studies published in Nature and Health magazine indicate the likelihood that regular exposure to chlorinated water can promote the aging process of the skin, much like extended exposure to sunlight.
Chlorine and Hair
“One out of every two clients coming into the salon has chlorine damage to their hair,” says Vancouver’s top hairdresser Derek London, “It’s almost the same as oxidation from peroxide burning, except chlorine adds density to the hair. You see a lot of breakage and splitting. The chlorine makes hair shiny like fiberglass. Hair tangles when it’s shampooed and becomes difficult to comb.”
