Filter the Chlorine
Do you know that chlorine contributes to the development of atherosclerosis and the resulting heart attacks and strokes?
According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality, cancer risks among people drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain it.
A good water purifier or chlorine filter eliminates this health risk in your drinking water. And just as important... use a chlorine filter for your shower and bath water.
Unfortunately, a long hot shower can be dangerous because the toxic chemicals are inhaled in high concentrations.
You can absorb 6 to 100 times more chlorine by breathing the vapors in the air around showers and bath than you would by drinking the water.
A high quality shower filter is essential for removing the unhealthy chlorine. And a nice bonus... you'll also notice that your skin looks healthier and your hair is more luxurious when using a shower filter.
Our skin is our body's largest organ and is entirely absorbent. Children are more susceptible to the harmful effects so, if you or your children take baths, purchase a dechlorinating bathtub filter. The bath ball removes 90% or more of the chlorine and chloramines.

The drinking of chlorinated water has finally been officially linked to an increased incidence of colon cancer. An epidemiologist at Oak Ridge Associated Universities completed a study of colon cancer victims and non-cancer patients and concluded that the drinking of chlorinated water for 15 years or more was conducive to a high rate of colon cancer.
St. Paul Dispatch & Pioneer Press, 1987
Long-term drinking of chlorinated water appears to increase a person's risk of developing bladder cancer as much as 80%, according to a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Some 45,000 Americans are diagnosed every year with bladder cancer.
BOTTOM LINE, 1987 - Dr. John Andelman, PhD
"On one hand, chlorination has freed civilization from the constant dangers of waterborne epidemics. On the other hand, in the mid 70's, scientists discovered that chlorination could create carcinogens in water."
"There was a higher incidence of cancer of the esophagus, rectum, breast, and larynx and of Hodgkin's Disease among those drinking chlorinated water."
AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PUBLIC HEALTH - Dr.Halina Brown
Showering is suspected as the primary cause of elevated levels of chloroform in nearly every home.
NEW SCIENTIST, 1986 - Ian Anderson
Studies indicate the suspect chemicals can also be inhaled and absorbed through the skin during showering and bathing.
According to research presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society, taking long hot showers - and to a lesser extent baths - is a health risk and leads to greater exposure to toxic chemicals contained in water supplies than does drinking the water.
The chemicals evaporate out of the water and are inhaled. They can also spread through the house and be inhaled by others.
House holders can receive 6 to 100 times more of the chemical by breathing the air around showers and bath than they would by drinking the water.Read more shower filter benefits.
NADER REPORT - Troubled Waters On Tap
The National Academy of Science estimates that 200 to 1000 people die in the United States each year from cancers caused by ingesting the contaminants in the water. The major health threat posed by these pollutants is far more likely to be from their inhalation as air pollutants. The reason that emissions are high is because water droplets dispersed by the shower head have a larger surface-to-value ratio than water streaming into the bath.

Chloroform levels increase 100 times during a 10 minute shower in tap water.
University of Pittsburgh - Julian B. Andelman, Professor of Water Chemistry
The steamy air of a shower contains significant amounts of at least two cancer-causing chemicals that evaporate out of water.
CHEMISTRY AND CONTROL OF MODERN CHLORINATION - Dr. A.T. Palin, PhD
Chlorine gas was despicably used during WWI. When the war was over, the use of chlorine was diverted to poisoning germs in our drinking water. All water supplies throughout the country were chlorinated. The combination of chlorine (when in drinking water) and animal fats results in atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and death.
SCIENCE NEWS, Vol. 130 - Janet Raloff
The cause of atherosclerosis and resulting heart attacks and strokes is none other than the ubiquitous chlorine in our drinking water.
WATER CAN UNDERMINE YOUR HEALTH -
Dr. N.W. Walker, D.S.
Chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of the modern times. While it prevented epidemics of one disease, it was creating another.
Decades ago, after the start of chlorinating our drinking water in 1904, the present epidemic of heart trouble, cancer and senility began.
