SPONSOR POST: Fatal Tap Water Alert

Numerous scientific studies report that chlorinated water is a skin irritant and can be associated with rashes. Chlorinated water can destroy polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E in the body while generating toxins capable of free radical damage.

Chlorinated water destroys much of the intestinal flora, the friendly bacteria that help in the digestion of food and protect the body from harmful pathogens. It is not uncommon for chronic digestive disorders or skin conditions like acne, psoriasis and eczema to clear up or significantly improve by switching to unchlorinted drinking water and supplementing the diet with lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus.

Chlorinated water contains chemical compounds that do not degrade well and are generally stored in the fatty tissues of the body. These compounds can cause mutations by altering DNA, suppressing immune system function and interfering with the natural controls of cell growth. Chlorine has been documented to aggravate asthma and has been linked 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 even minimizes chlorine would be helpful and possibly curative for some immune system problems.

The tremendous increase of health insurance prices in recent years has been attributed to various health-related factors such as lack of regular exercise, unhealthy food choices, exodus of doctors away from poor areas and rural areas, alcohol consumption, cigarette smoking, the popularity of drug addiction, increased body fat leading to obesity and the sedentary life led by most individuals nowadays.
