Chlorine has been used in water for a very long time.
In swimming pools and in drinking water supply to kill bacteria, and make water safer to use.
Chlorine, however, causes other problems. It is a highly reactive chemical, and when it connects with your body the results are never good.
For a start, chlorinated water accelerates the aging process.
This happens because chlorinated water removes many of the natural oils in your skin that hold moisture in. Which leads to dry and itchy skin. You have noticed this after having a shower or bath at times, and possibly after being swimming in a pool too. Perhaps you never realized why. Until now.
Chlorine And Bacteria The Wider Picture On Chlorinated Water
Many people hear bacteria and immediately think, oh no!
The fact is that while there are harmful bacteria, which can be found in many places. And getting rid of them is good, especially when you want to stay as healthy as possible, and live a good life.
There are good bacteria too.
If, you have an interest in staying healthy. And, you want to ensure you do the best for you body.
Then you know there are important, good bacteria inside you. Especially in your gut.
There are also important good bacteria, that keep you healthy, on your skin. Though when you have chlorinated water coming through your faucets, those good bacteria suffer. Which causes your skin to suffer more too.
On the inside, chlorine is affecting your body too.
One point of note on this, is that published reports have revealed increased risk of colorectal cancers in people exposed to chlorinated drinking water, or chemical derivatives of chlorination.
So filtering chlorine out of your water supply, before it gets near you in any way.
Is a good thing.
