Are you bathing with unsafe water. If you have city water and it is chlorinated then you need to ask the question: How safe is your shower?
Most health conscious people drink filtered water. Some even go so far as to avoid plastics. Yet there is one other use of water that is just as dangerous as drinking it. This unsafe water danger comes from showering.
Note: Not everyone is going to get cancer from taking showers. However, like the gambling of rolling dice, eventually some win. In the case of cancer, one in three will get it in their life time. Why not lower the odds with the simple unsafe water solutions at the end of this section.
Although this may be a bit unnerving, there is something that you can do to protect yourself. Something simple, effective and inexpensive. Before reviewing what you can do, consider why there is a danger.
In another test of the drinking water of more than 28 million people from 19 U.S. water utilities, you can get a clearer view of what your bathing your body in.
The study reported that pharmaceuticals, endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs), unregulated organic contaminants were the worst offenders. Of the 51 compounds the study looked for, the 11 most often found compounds were atenolol, atrazine, carbamazepine, estrone, gemfibrozil, meprobamate, naproxen, phenytoin, sulfamethoxazole, TCEP, and trimethoprim.
So, not only are you bating in chemicals that cause cancer, you are also bathing in a cocktail of several medicine cabinets. You can read the study yourself.
Showering is unsafe for several reasons. We are not suggesting people should not bathe. Rather, you need to be informed. If you have health problems and are not finding solutions, this may be an area to look.
The very thing that makes the water safe to drink has been proven to cause cancer, asthma. It has long been known that it causes skin irritations.
The majority of potentially harmful effects of chlorine are the result of inhalation and skin absorption while showering, according to the American Journal of Public Health.
The reason is simple. The shower helps vaporize the water which makes it easier for the chlorine to evaporate into a gaseous form.
It is believed we can absorb three times more toxins from showering. Not only is the vapor breathed in and absorbed in the lungs, it is more easily absorbed in the skin. The warmth of the shower opens the pores of our skin, inviting the toxins in.
When the chlorine vaporizes from the steam of the shower, it is free to combine with other organic compounds that may be in the air. Get the right ones and you have chloroform.
First and foremost, a whole house filter. Change according to manufacturers instructions. How often will depend on family size and how much water is used. Usually it will take a multi stage system.
Many health conscious families have a secondary filter for drinking water. Do not forget the water used for brushing your teeth.
Our gums are one of the fastest routes to the blood stream, second only to direct IV access.
Eating the glutathione diet will help. If you have heavy exposure such as life guards and those who work around chlorine gas, consider supplementing to boost your glutathione levels.
You will find an additional benefit when you start to do this. You will have better total health and probably more energy than you know what to do with.
In the tight money times we live in, conservation will save more than just money. In addition to getting a water saver shower head, get a head with a shut off. Then only get wet to lather and bathe. When finished, open the valve on the shower head. The slight drip that the little valve allows will keep the shower at a constant temperature.
These simple changes can go a long way to help you maintain your health and eliminate unsafe water from your life.

The Way to Make More GSH For Free
Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.
Usually there is something more than just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH.
The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.
It is simple, easy, sustainable and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).
And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
