You get more toxic exposure from taking a shower than from drinking the same water.
So reported Science News about a recent study by a major U.S. university. Possibly one of the most significant risks to your health is not about what you put in your body by way of food and water, but what you put on your body by bathing in chlorinated water. The skin is the body’s largest organ and easily absorbs contaminants, which pass through it to the blood stream. Therefore, whatever you put on your skin ends up in your body.

The dictionary defines chlorine as a “gaseous greenish-yellow element used as a bleaching and disinfecting agent.” Chlorination of drinking water began in the 1890’s to fight water-borne diseases such as cholera and typhoid. People stopped dying of typhoid and cholera, but they started dying of cancer and heart disease! [ why you should own a water filter article ]
