Chlorine And Your Health

Pure water is so important to our overall health. The Global Healing Center explains the dangers of chlorine in our water quite well in the following article.
“Chlorine is a naturally occurring element; symbol Cl, atomic number 17 on the periodic table. It’s a very dangerous toxin that has many uses, from disinfecting to bleaching. In small quantities, liquid and gas forms can be poisonous. In its gas form, chlorine is a pale green colour and has a smelly odor and makes your breathing labored. Using a Brita Water Filter can help eliminate all this.
In its solid form, it’s more of a yellow green colour. It is abundant in nature in its chloride ion form found in many of the salts that are in the earth. Many animals, including humans need chlorine”
How am I Exposed to Chlorine?
Even taking a long bath or shower increases a person’s risk for chlorine exposure because chlorine can enter the body through skin absorption or through the eyes, nose, and ears.
Chlorine has long been used to disinfect our drinking water because it controls the growth of such unwelcome bacteria as Ecoli and Giardia. You have to be careful also, to take precautions even when showering or drinking tap water.
What are Possible Symptoms of Exposure to Toxic Levels of Chlorine?
Research has shown, however, that long-term exposure to chlorine leads to the production of free radicals within the body. Free radicals are carcinogenic and cause tremendous damage to our cells.
So you can see why Brita Water Filters play a vital role in eliminating unwanted toxins from our families water system and homes.
