Is Shower Filter all that important? This is a very important question, as you want to know what is all fuss about. Here's the scoop.

  1. The EPA has stated that every household in the US has elevated levels of chloroform in the air from free chlorine released from the shower.
  2. Tap water may have more chlorine than is recommended for swimming pools. This is specifically important for showers where you can breathe chlorine vapour (remember chemistry lessons? Chlorine is a gas).
  3. More chlorine enters the body through skin absorption and inhalation while taking a shower than through drinking tap water. That's a fact.
  4. Because of chlorine, showering in tap water may have severe drying effects on skin and hair, and can contribute to premature aging.
  5. Skin pores widen while showering, making skin more absorbent of chlorine. We'd like someone to prove that, but this is what is being claimed.
  6. The chlorine in showering water can cause rashes and other skin irritations when absorbed by the skin. This can lead to skin problems such as red skin and eczema.
  7. Chemicals in showering water vaporize at a much faster rate than the actual water. Thus, the steam in a shower contains a much higher concentration of chemicals than the water itself.
  8. Inhaled chemicals make their way into the bloodstream quicker than ingested chemicals, without the "filtration" benefits of digestion and your .
  9. More water contaminants are released into the air of a house from the shower than from any other source.
  10. Chlorine is confirmed to kill gut flora

Resent studies suggest that Chlorine is a suspected cause of breast cancer. Women suffering from breast cancer are all found to have 50% to 60% more chlorine in their breast tissue than healthy women.

Which Filter to Get? - if you only want to get one filter (and we don't know why but let's assume this), get a Shower Filter. Breathing chlorine in showers is more dangerous to your health than drinking it through tap.
