“Chlorinated water contains chemical compounds called trihalomethanes which are carcinogens resulting from the combination of chlorine with compounds in water. Chlorine has been documented to aggravate asthma, especially in those children who make use of chlorinated swimming pools. Several studies link chlorine and chlorine by-products to a greater incidence of bladder, breast and bowel cancer as well as malignant melanoma. Anything you can do to filter tap and shower water that eliminates or minimizes chlorine would be helpful for some immune system problems”. – Zoltan P. Rona, MD MSc
