? But chlorine is ingested in tap water and may be inhaled and absorbed through the skin during showering.
? Writing in New Scientist, Ian Anderson warned that taking long hot showers is a health risk, according to research presented in California.
? A study in 1996, Exposure to chlorination by-product from Hot Water Use, found that the exhaled breath of people whose had recently showered contained elevated levels of chloroform and other byproduct gases.
? A 10-minute shower or a 30-minute bath contributed a greater intake of volatile compounds than drinking 4 liters of tap water.
? Showers with enclosed glass surrounds increase the dose because the steam cannot easily escape.
Is Chlorine Bad?
? Chlorine bonds chemically with the natural protective protein found in skin and hair causing:
? flaking skin
? That's why a long swim in a chlorinated pool dries your skin.
? Chlorine evaporates from warm bath water, so inhalation and skin absorption of chloroform and chlorine by-products is greatest in shower.
? Chlorine can have a major impact on people with asthma.
Chlorine Affect Our Health
? Chlorine By-Products and Cancer
