Why is chlorine and chloramine dangerous?

Category: shower filters

Chloramine might cause leaching of  lead from lead pipes. The presence of lead in the water supply might cause poisoning. Lead poisoning can cause illnesses such as neurological damage, health problems and even death in young children.

During a warm shower contaminants such as free chlorine, get very unstable in the  hot water and instantly begin to evaporate out of the water. You then begin to inhale the vapor directly into the lungs.

The level of chlorine might vary during the day, but constant exposure to high concentrations of chlorine can lead respiratory illness and in other cases  miscarriage.
