Chlorine

 

 

Chlorine is a very strong irritant. It causes nausea in a lot of people. Bleach is highly concentrated chlorine. But even in low concentrations chlorine is still a potent irritant. Professional swimmers wear goggles not just to see better in the water but also to protect their eyes from the burning effects of chlorine. Adding chemicals such as chlorine obviously isn’t the best solution to disinfect water. But that’s not all. Chlorinated water can also cause:

 

skin disorders such as eczema

 

weak or damaged hair

 

dry scalp and dandruff

 

cognitive decline

 

fatigue

 

respiratory and pulmonary disorders such as asthma

 

breast, bladder, kidney, colorectal, liver, pancreatic, and skin cancer

 

Hodgkins and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma

 

miscarriage, stillbirth, and birth defects if you’re pregnant,

early infant death

 

stroke

 

heart disease
