If you shower in municipal tap water that has been chlorinated, you could be slowly poisoning yourself by breathing in toxic chlorine vapors.
Bacteria and pathogens are removed from most municipal water supplies using chlorine. The problem is, after chlorine is added and its job is done, it is not removed before it re-enters the water supply and our homes. The result is water contaminated with chlorine (and MANY other harmful chemicals) entering our homes and many people end up drinking and bathing in it everyday.
Many authorities believe that we accept more chlorine into our bodies from one shower than from drinking 6-8 glasses of chlorinated water a day. Even worse, when that hot water containing chlorine vaporizes, you are inhaling chlorine and other toxic chemicals present in your water supply. The accumulation of toxic chemicals in the body will eventually lead to disease, therefore it’s critically important that we take action to eliminate our exposure to as many of these chemicals as possible.
I’m here to show you how, with a simple upgrade, you can eliminate your exposure to almost all of these chemicals forever!
