While not many people drink the shower water, if it is contaminated it may still harm us by penetrating through skin.
Not too many people realize that the shower water may also be a source of contaminated water. For some reason they don’t tend to associate that water with contaminated kitchen or bathroom tap water. There are very few people who actually drink the shower water, but the contaminants in the water are capable of penetrating our skin and making us ill. They don’t do a whole lot of good for our skin either.
We already know for certain that water these days contains so many toxic chemicals that the only way we can safely drink it is to use water distillers. Even better is to install water distillation systems in the home and business environment. This way there will be safe and fresh drinking water on hand; on demand.
In the shower, we can’t use distilled water to wash our hair to get the chlorine out. Chlorine has a very distinctive smell and it permeates our skin and hair when showering. While chlorine in small amounts is helpful, the tap water usually has more chlorine in it than what is thought to be a safe level for swimming pools. While it may kill bacteria, its long-term effects on humans are not beneficial. More specifically, it has been shown to cause a variety of cancers.
So, even if a person doesn’t drink the water in the shower, it is being absorbed into the skin. Put another way, a 10-minute shower allows as many chemicals to seep into the body as drinking a gallon of contaminated water straight from the tap. That certainly gives one pause for thought. Add this other thought to consider as well; steaming shower water means inhalation of chemicals in the steam. Think aggravated allergies and lung problems.
There are some showerhead water filters on the market that may solve this problem. At the very least, they would be well worth checking out and utilized in combination with the water distillers used to get safe drinking water when it’s needed.
