Chlorine is commonly used in tap water to kill bacteria, but trace amounts can remain in your water supply. This video covers a few of the health concerns of chlorinated water and what you can do mitigate its effects.
Even if you don’t ingest chlorinated tap water, it can still be hazardous to your skin during bathing or showering. Chlorine absorption can lead to dry, brittle hair and itchy, flaky skin. Additionally, the chlorine can react with other organic substances in the water supply and potentially create dangerous chemicals.
