Water supply for today and tomorrow

Water supply and today's demand for changes

Chlorine is added to water to kill bacteria and chlorine becomes the biggest single contributor to water pollution

When chlorine kills bacteria it leaves behind chemical by-products like chloroform and trihalomethanes – potent carcinogens

Chlorine in home water that does not form carcinogenic by-products is free to evaporate from drinking water and fill a home with toxic gas.

Public water supply in fifty (50) States are treated with chlorine, but that isn’t the only way chlorine gets into your water

Report by the US National Library of Medicine (UNLM) stated that there are 1,673 toxic waste sites in the US that are leeching chlorine and its toxic by-products into public water

This means that it is likely that the amount of chlorine you are being exposed to is much higher than the amount added by your local water authority

The EPA and other US government agencies which monitor water pollution report that homes in the US have between 2 and 44 ppb (parts per billion) of chloroform gas in their drinking water

Pollution reports said that all US drinking water is contaminated

Homes unlucky enough to be near toxic waste sites (most US homes are) will have as high as 1,900 ppb of chloroform gas in their water!

Short term effects of Chlorine Water Pollution

Your exposure to chlorine comes primarily from bathing and other activities that use hot water rather than from drinking

Short term exposure irritates the eyes and lungs, and within 15 minutes of exposure victims experience coughing, shortness of breath and headaches.

Long term effects of Chlorine Water Pollution

Regular exposure to chlorine in the home has been associated with asthma and other respiratory diseases

An EPA study of chlorine in drinking water – even in small amounts – shows that chlorine causes higher blood cholesterol levels, higher blood pressure, heart diseases, and significantly increases your chances of dying from a heart attack

Cancer the by-products of chlorine, chloroform and trihalomethanes deserve special mention

Both chemicals are classified as potent carcinogens.

There are many different cancers caused by chlorines’ by-products such as lung, bladder, and rectal cancers, as well as some forms of leukemia

Chlorine is one of the most deadly chemicals contributing to water pollution problems today

Chlorine (Cl2) is an element that is widely used to sanitize public water in the United States

Chlorine is so deadly that it was used as a chemical weapon in World War I, where it caused horrific casualties

Chlorine is liquefied before being used to treat water supplies, but it readily returns to its lethal gaseous form in home water supplies where it causes severe health problems

Water supply with chlorine is the cause to most health problems in USA
