Look at the independent research people. Water supplies world wide are producing negative health effects with major scares going on. Chlorine is the new sticking plaster for all the polluted waterways. However it is carcinogenic. We are being slowly poisoned. Many families will not know this, and many if they do know, will not be able to afford to filter it out. See our Water pages and share this information.
(NaturalHealth365) Numerous studies are showing a link between chlorine intake and cancer, heart attacks and other negative health effects.
This occurs when chlorine byproducts trigger harmful free radicals in the body and inhibit other cellular processes. While drinking water with chlorination causes the most damage, cooking and bathing with it can also expose you to negative health effects. Keep in mind, the lungs and skin can be just as sensitive as internal organs.
The practice of chlorination has been used since the 1800s, although it didn’t become a standard until the early 1900s. It’s utilized primarily because it is the cheapest way to disinfect large amounts of water. However, it is far from the safest. In fact, using chlorine in water is like pouring bleach in it.
Drinking water with chlorine can elevate cancer risk by up to 93 percent
The U.S. Council of Environmental Quality has estimated that cancer risk among those who drink chlorinated water can be up to 93 percent higher than those who don’t.
A 1960s book by Dr. Joseph Price called “Coronaries Cholesterol Chlorine” was one of the first publications to expose the connection between chlorine and a higher risk of stroke and heart attack. Test animals exposed to chlorinated water during research studies showed at least some levels of circulatory or heart issues, whereas those not exposed to this toxic element showed no evidence of these problems. Chickens exposed to chlorinated water showed evidence of overall poor circulation as well as drooping in their feathers, lethargy, and visible shivering.
By contrast, animals not exposed to chlorine show better growth rates and much more vigorous overall health. (This is an indicator that pets and farm animals should also be given non-chlorinated water)
