  • Bottled water tested, contained contaminant levels that exceeded strict state health limits. "One study found that hormone-disrupting phthalates had leached into bottled water that had been stored for 10 weeks."
Chlorine Free Living (via Flyer):
  • For intestinal health avoiding chlorine is crucial. Chlorinated water kills the good bacterial in the body.
  • "Studies show- a strong link between chlorinated water supplies with elevated trihalomethane levels and cancers of the bladder, kidney, liver, pancreas, gastrointestinal tract, colon and brain," - Jordan S. Rubin, N.M.D.

  • National Jewish Hospital in Denver indicates increase in pulmonary infections in the US from people taking more showers and fewer baths.
  • Mycobacterium gordonae was cleaned with bleach. Several months later the M.gordonae increased three-fold, indicated general resistance of mycobractiera species to chlorine.
  • If your immune system is compromised there is a risk to shower head pathogens.
