Stop Bathing With ‘Anyhow’ Water – Discover The Amazing Health Benefits Of Using A Shower Water Filter
Anyone who has ever spent much time swimming in a chlorinated pool knows the harsh drying and itching effect chlorine has on skin and hair. Those drying, itching and aging effects come about because chlorine removes the natural protective oils from our skin and hair. In this article, we will discuss some of the issues that the high-quality Life Ionizer shower filter, with double filters, plus Vitamin C Ceramic Technology, will address. This high-quality shower filter will help solve these cosmetic issues, as well as the more alarming health concerns recently reported in such sources as The American Journal of Public Health, the EPA, and Rutgers University as well. These issues concern the tremendous toxic burden our bodies take on when we take hot showers and baths in chlorinated water.
Now most people reading this would think that a little chlorine, in minute quantities, in our tap water would not cause a health problem when showering, even if we did not use a shower water filter. But, did you know the EPA, who oversees the quality of our tap water, allows more chlorine to be in tap water to kill bacteria and viruses than is allowed in swimming pools? That is not to say all tap water has chlorine concentrations at that level, but I have tested the level of chlorine in homes, especially ones closer to the municipal treatment plants, that had much higher levels than a swimming pool is allowed.
Another thing you should know is that chlorine is not the only harmful chemical pollutant in our water that evaporates easily in hot shower water. There are a whole class of Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs) and radon gas possibilities, as well. The EPA’s own scientists have identified 600 cancer-causing byproducts of chlorine, and some of them exist in virtually every chlorinated water supply in America. You can count on at least some of them being in your water.
When we shower in water containing these toxins, some of them are absorbed into our bodies through our skin, and our bodies have to become their filter. But, by far, the most dangerous health risks come from the effects of breathing in the chemicals and radon gas, which evaporate into the air after they are released by the hot shower water.
The American Journal of Public Health linked chlorine to “significant increases in certain types of cancer, asthma and skin irritations”, noting that “up to two-thirds of the harmful exposure was due to skin absorption and inhalation of chlorine in shower water.”
Scientists tell us 98% of the tap water goes down the drain, but 70% to 90% of the volatile chemicals in the water will vaporize into the air before the water hits the shower floor. And this leads to serious health risks since we are inhaling steam while we are showering, taking toxins from our lungs directly into our bloodstreams in concentrations up to 20 times the concentrations of chlorine and other synthetic chemicals found in tap water.
The only way to protect yourself and your family from these organic compounds or radon gas is to filter the water before you use it. To get the best shower water for yourself and your family, you would require a Life Ionizer Shower Filter to remove many contaminants, harmful carcinogenics and chemicals in the water, including 99% of the chlorine – Guaranteed!. Inhaling the steam of unfiltered water is just as dangerous as drinking it. And those chemicals can soak into your skin as well.
