Did you know that you absorb more chlorine through your hot, steamy shower than your drinking water? That's a fact!
According to Dr. John Andelman, of the School of Health at the University of Pittsburgh,taking a shower can actually increase your exposure to chlorine up to 100 times more than drinking the same water. That's because the hot water can open the pores of the skin and cause the body to soak up the chlorine and other contaminants like a sponge.
In 1993, the Medical College of Wisconsin, reported that exposure to chlorination by-products produced a 15% increase in the risk of all cancers, but higher for organ-specific cancers, (bladder & rectal). A 1997 study involving 28,237 women also associated the consumption of chlorinated by-products with higher risks of cancers, (25%) but especially colon cancer (up 68%). Chlorine is used to chemically disinfect water. It kills germs, bacteria and other microorganisms. Chlorine readily passes through cell walls, and attaches to fatty acids in the cell, disrupting life-sustaining functions. The human body is composed of billions of similar cells which also absorb chlorine.
