Most people fail to realise that taking a typical shower can expose you to nearly ten times more chlorine than you would receive by drinking unfiltered tap water all day long.
When it comes to the water you drink, you might go out of your way to buy it bottled or filtered - so you’re guaranteed something that is pure and clean. It just makes good sense.
You install filters on your kitchen tap, so even the water you use in your cooking is safe. You wouldn’t want to knowingly put harmful chemicals and pollutants into your body, right?
So, it’s surprising that you’ll take showers in the same water you refuse to wash your veggies in. But, more than just surprising, it’s also potentially hazardous to your health...
More and more studies are confirming what people have suspected for many years - simple exposure to water in your shower and bath has the potential to do real and long-term damage to your health and wellbeing.
In fact, exposure to the chemicals in your shower and the steam a hot shower produces, including chlorine, chloroform, trichloroethylene (TCE), and hydrogen sulfide, may cause cancer, respiratory illness, liver and kidney disease, and a whole host of other health problems.
And, lets clarify here... when we say "exposure", we just mean getting wet and breathing while you’re in the shower - there’s no scientific jargon that disguises something more complicated than what you do every time you take a shower.
That’s right - every single day you could be putting yourself at risk by simply stepping into the shower.
If you are suffering from dry itchy skin, eczema or psoriasis, then a shower filter may help you.
