Why is chlorine so bad for you?

Studies by Dr. K. Thickett of the Occupational Lung Diseases Unit at the Birmingham Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham, England, showed that there was an increase in asthma related conditions for those working around swimming pools. When they moved away from the pools, their symptoms improved or went away entirely.

It has also been shown that tap water contains the same problems for many people. The U.S. EPA has stated that every household in America on a chlorinated water system has an elevated level of chloroform gas in the indoor air. This elevated level is directly related to showering, cooking, washing dishes, clothes, and even flushing toilets with chlorinated water. The fact is that every time you open a waterspout in your home, you are releasing asthma-causing substances into your household atmosphere.

It is no use boiling, distilling or even using reverse osmosis, none of them can do the job! That means carbon block filters are the most effective method for removing chloramines.

When choosing a system look for one that uses activated carbon with submicron filtering. This will ensure 99.9% of contaminants such as chloramine and lead are removed, leaving you with safe, pure water.

Even without the presence of chloramines, it is vital to drink and use filtered water… as the water supply has been known to have over 2,100 toxic chemicals in it… including prescription drugs and pesticides!
