The Problem With Chlorine, Chemicals & Pollutants

Chlorine destroys your skin!

Your skin pores open up in the shower causing your chlorine to enter… chlorine-sores

  • Causes irritation, acne and an imbalance of natural, healthy bacteria on the skin.
  • Makes skin dry all year long.
  • Skin becomes itchy – especially if you suffer from Eczema.
  • Chlorine can cause wrinkles, and dry, blotchy skin that is unattractive and uncomfortable, but unhealthy, as well.
  • Chlorine damages the oil and mineral balance of cells, destroying the fluid balance, resulting in dried out, dead cells.

This leads to dry, peeling skin, which makes the surface of the skin appear shiny!

*Some water authorities even use Chloramine (NH2Cl) – a combination of Chlorine & Ammonia

Chloramines are often an unwanted side product of oxidation reactions of organic compounds (with amino groups) with bleach

It’s like taking a shower in Clorox!

  • Tougher to manage
  • Hair coloring doesn’t last as long
  • Makes scalp dry and hair becomes brittle
  • Makes hair dull
  • Chlorine has the ability to burn the tips of your hair off, resulting in a strand of hair having a blunt end
  • Hair loss can be significant and result in an increase in split ended hair strands
apple-danger Chlorine gets in the food you cook!

  • Chlorinated water smells and tastes terrible
  • Cooking with it destroys the taste of your food and is very unhealthy
  • The water that comes out of your kitchen faucet has more chlorine than swimming pool water
  • Chlorine, when ingested in drinking water, can cause eye, nose, and sinus irritation as well as stomach problems
What else is hiding in your shower? chlorine-faucetIn another test of the tap water of more than 28 million people from 19 U.S. water utilities, you can get a clearer view of what you are bathing your body in. The study reported that pharmaceuti- cals, endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs), unregulated organic contami- nants were the worst offenders. Of the 51 compounds the study looked for, the 11 most often found compounds were: atenolol,atrazine,carbamazepine, estrone, gemfibrozil, meprobamate, naproxen, phenytoin, sulfamethoxazole, TCEP, and trimethoprim. Not only are you bathing in chemicals that cause cancer, you are also bathing in a cocktail of several medicine cabinets.

Harvard University Test Results

harvard“Chlorinated drinking water has been linked to small increases in the rates of rectal and bladder cancer in a new analysis by researchers at Harvard University and the Medical College of Wisconsin. The findings, reported today in The American Journal of Public Health, are drawn from a combination of 10 previous studies. Using statistical methods, the researchers found that the slightly higher rates of the two cancers seemed to correlate with the amount of byproducts produced by chlorinated water.” “…the authors calculated that it accounted for 6,500 cases of rectal cancer and 4,200 cases of bladder cancer in the US each year.” pouring-poisonnew-york-times Reported about clean water laws being neglected: “tests show that most tap water contains arsenic , barium, lead, manganese and other chemicals at concentrations federal regulators say could contribute to cancer and damage the kidneys and nervous system.”

Chlorine is a POISON

poison-bottles

  • Your body absorbs 2/3 of the water it needs from showering and bathing
  • Chlorine is added to most tap water
  • It’s a fact: Bathing, showering and drinking chlorinated water increases risk of cancer
  • These chlorine byproducts trigger the production of free radicals in the body, causing cell damage, and may be highly carcinogenic
  • Chlorine inhalation is a leading cause of asthma
