AND YOUR SHOWER
long hot showers is a health risk, according to research presented
last week in Anaheim, California, at a meeting of the American
Chemical Society. Showers-and to a lesser extent baths-lead to
a greater exposure to toxic chemicals contained in water supplies
than does drinking the water. The chemicals evaporate out of
the water and are inhaled. They can also spread through the house
and be inhaled by others. House holders can receive 6 to 100
times more of the chemical by breathing the air around showers
and bath than they would by drinking the water."

claims that exposure to vaporized chemicals in the water supplies
through showering, bathing, and inhalation is 100 times greater
than through drinking the water." >"As
chlorine is added to kill pathogenic microorganisms, the highly
reactive chlorine combines with fatty acids and carbon fragments
to form a variety of toxic compounds, which comprise about 30%
of the chlorination by-products." >"During
the mid-1970s monitoring efforts began to identify widespread
toxic contamination of the nation's drinking water supplies,
epidemiological studies began to suggest a link between ingestion
of toxic chemicals in the water and elevated cancer mortality
risks. Since those studies were completed a variety of additional
studies have strengthened the statistical connection between
consumption of toxins in water and elevated cancer risks. Moreover,
this basic concern has been heightened by other research discoveries.

National Academy of Sciences estimate that 200 to 1000 people

is used almost universally in the treatment of public drinking
water because of its toxic effect on harmful bacteria and other
waterborne, disease-causing organisms. But there is a growing
body of scientific evidence that shows that chlorine in drinking
water may actually pose greater long term dangers than those
for which it was used to eliminate. >These
effects of chlorine may result from either ingestion or absorption
through the skin. Scientific studies have linked chlorine and
chlorination by-products to cancer of the bladder, liver, stomach,
rectum, and colon, as well as heart disease, atherosclerosis
(hardening of the arteries), anemia, high blood pressure, and
allergic reactions. There is also evidence that shows that chlorine
can destroy protein in our body and cause adverse effects on
skin and hair. >The
presence of chlorine in water may also contribute to the formation
of chloramines in the water, which can cause taste and odor problems."
chlorine is required by public health regulations to be present

to remove it at the point-of-use in the home. The best available
method of chlorine removal, for the individual consumer is found
