Does Your Water Have This Much Chlorine?
Use our Chlorine Test Solution
To Test Your Drinking Water
Use this handy chlorine testing solution to see how much
chlorine is in your tap water. It is a great way to discover
if your water filter is actually removing chlorine. If
chlorine is still in your water it is an indication that
your filter needs to be changed. Give a bottle to your
friend so they can get that motivation to filter their tap
water. It might be the thing that saves his or her life.
Human beings should not be drinking chlorinated water. It
was only put in the water to kill micro organisms. It is
really a poison for humans to drink. Incidentally, this test
solution is also a poison. Be careful to read the
information below and do not leave it where children can get
a hold of it. You should treat all test solution in the same
way unless told otherwise.
Chlorine Test Solution will serve you well giving you several tests in
every bottle. Use it to test when you should be replacing your
water ionizer filter
cartridge or any other type of
water filter which filters
chlorine. Regardless of how long the filter cartridges are rated to
last, it all depends on your water quality. City governments and
townships are not obligated to tell anyone that they had to increased or
decreased the amount of chlorine on a day to day basis depending on the
level of contamination they need to address. This means that a filter
can be useless even though the manufacturer's expected filter life had
not yet expired. Test your water every month to be on the safe side.
Why You Should Not
Drink Chlorinated Water
may know people who don't care about what all those health nuts
think, and they drink chlorinated tap water like whisky and bathe in
chlorinated water as if it was holy water. Well don't allow their
attitude to lower your guard. You can't blame them when you get
sick. Take responsibility for your own health. This first step is
education. Below please find a series of news articles taken from
various news outlets about the increased risks from drinking,
bathing or swimming in chlorinated water.
Breitbart.com: 'Swimming in chlorinated pools can
lead to cancer: study'
Swimming in chlorinated pools can cause an increased risk of cancer
in bathers, Spanish researchers said on Monday. Researchers from the
Barcelona-based Centre of Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL)
and Research Institute Hospital del Mar studied changes in indicators of
mutagenicity -- permanent mutation of the DNA -- among a group of
swimmers in an indoor chlorinated pool.
"The evidence of genotoxic effects were observed in 49 healthy
adults after swimming for 40 minutes in a chlorinated indoor pool,"
CREAL said in a statement on Monday.
Researchers found indicators of an increase in cancer risk in
healthy subjects as well as potential respiratory effects from the
cholorine used as a disinfectant, the statement said.
The study was published on Sunday in the US journal Environmental
The co-director of CREAL, Manolis Kogevinas, said the findings should
not put people off swimming.
"The positive health impacts of swimming can be increased by reducing
the levels of these chemicals," he said.
"In no case do we want to stop swimming, but to encourage the reduction
of chemicals in swimming pools," said Kogevinas, who suggested the
problems caused by a reduction in levels of disinfectant could be offset
if swimmers showered before taking a dip, wore bathing caps and
refrained from urinating.

Water treated with
chlorine also destroys vitamin E stores in the body, leading to
mitral valve problems and other heart problems. Many researchers now
feel it may have a strong link to the development of our number one
killer in the United States, clogging of the arteries. Chlorine has
been linked to heart attacks, strokes, premature senility and sexual
studies report that chlorinated tap water is a skin irritant and can be
associated with rashes like eczema. Chlorinated water can destroy
polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E in the body while generating
toxins capable of free radical damage (oxidation). This might explain
why supplementation of the diet with essential fatty acids like flax
seed oil, evening primrose oil, borage oil and antioxidants like vitamin
E, selenium and others helps so many cases of eczema and dry skin.
"Chlorinated water destroys
much of the intestinal flora, the friendly bacteria that help in the
digestion of food and which protects the body from harmful pathogens.
These bacteria are also responsible for the manufacture of several
important vitamins like vitamin B12 and vitamin K. It is not uncommon
for chronic skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, seborrhea and eczema
to clear up or to be significantly improved by switching to
unchlorinated drinking water and supplementing the diet with
lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus.
"Chlorinated water contains
chemical compounds called trihalomethanes ...also known as
organochlorides, do not degrade very well and are generally stored in
the fatty tissues of the body (breast, other fatty areas, mother's milk,
blood and semen). Organochlorides can cause mutations by altering DNA,
suppress immune system function and interfere with the natural controls
of cell growth.
"Chlorine has been
documented to aggravate asthma, especially in those children who make
use of chlorinated swimming pools.
"Anything you can do to filter tap and shower water that eliminates
or even minimizes chlorine would certainly be helpful and possibly
curative for some immune system problems.”

Chlorine and Showers
"Taking long hot
showers is a health risk, according to research presented last week
in Anaheim California, at a meeting of the American Chemical
Society--and to a lesser extent baths--lead to a greater exposure to
toxic chemicals contained in water supplies than does drinking the
water. The chemicals evaporate out of the water and are inhaled.
They can also spread through the house and be inhaled by others.
House holders can receive 6 to 100 times more of the chemical by
breathing the air around showers and bath than they would by
drinking the water." NEW SCIENTIST 18 September 1986 Ian Anderson
Our bodied can absorb 10 to
50 times the level of water borne chemicals than from drinking a glass
of the same water, and 600 times the chlorine. The heated shower and
water causes the pores of our skin to open. This allows chlorinated
vapors and other toxins to be absorbed into our bloodstream at elevated
levels. Even more than they would by drinking a glass of water that
contains the same contaminants.
"Chlorine is the greatest
crippler and killer of modern times. While it prevented epidemics of one
disease, ill was creating another. Two decades ago, after the start of
chlorinating our drinking water in 1904. The present epidemic of heart
trouble, cancer and senility began."

DailyMail: Chlorine in tap water 'nearly
doubles the risk of birth defects'
By JO MACFARLANE
Pregnant women living in areas where tap water is heavily
disinfected with chlorine nearly double their risk of having
children with heart problems, a cleft palate or major brain defects,
a new study has found.
Scientists say expectant mothers can expose themselves to the higher
risk by drinking the water, taking a bath or shower, or even by
standing close to a boiling kettle.
The danger comes from chemical by-products in chlorinated water
known as trihalomethanes, or THMs, which can be absorbed through the
skin. They can then pass into the womb.
