10 Reasons to Use a Shower Filter
Every household has elevated levels of chloroform in the air due to chlorine released from showering water.
Tap water often contains at least as much, if not more, chlorine than is recommended for use in swimming pools.
More chlorine enters the body through dermal absorption and inhalation while showering than through drinking tap water.
The chlorine in showering water has harsh, drying effects on skin and hair.
Skin pores widen while showering, making dermal absorption of chlorine and other chemicals possible.
The chlorine in showering water can cause rashes and other skin irritations when absorbed by the skin.
Chemicals in showering water vaporize at a much faster rate than the actual water. Thus, the steam in a shower contains a much higher concentration of chemicals than the water itself.
Inhaled chemicals make their way into the bloodstream much more quickly than ingested chemicals, without the added filtration benefits of digestion.
More water contaminants are released into the air of a home from the shower than from any other source.
Chlorine is a suspected cause of breast cancer. Women suffering from breast cancer are all found to have 50-60 percent more chlorine in their breast tissue than healthy women.
