Why Do I Need A Shower Filter?
Don't put off improving your health any longer!
WHY do so many people spend so much time and money getting rid of Chlorine and other toxins from their drinking water, but completely ignore it in their shower and baths?
Shower Water filters have now become a necessary part of daily living as a result of municipal water supplies being tainted with Chlorine, Chloramines, VOCs, THMs, chemicals and other impurities. Our shower filters effectively reduces free Chlorine by 99.8% for 25,000 gallons (average use 12 - 18 months) — this is two times longer than most shower filters.
5 Benefits of Using a Shower Filter
Showering in filtered water results in greater respiratory health by reducing the risk of asthma and bronchitis from Chlorine inhalation
Showering in Chlorine-free water greatly reduces artery wall damage to decrease the risks of atherosclerosis, strokes and heart disease
Without the drying effects of Chlorine, hair and skin becomes softer, healthier, and younger looking by reducing the appearance of rashes and wrinkles
As Chlorine is a leading cause of fatigue, showering in Chlorine-free, filtered water results in higher energy levels and overall greater health
Showering in Chlorine-free, filtered water decreases the risks of bladder and breast cancer
Taking a warm shower or lounging in a tub filled with hot chlorinated water, you unknowingly inhale Chloroform. The skin is the largest organ in the body with an adult human being about 22 square feet, the warm water causes the skin to act like a sponge, and you will absorb and inhale 600% more Chlorine and other chemicals with a single shower than we would from drinking the same unfiltered water all day. Children are especially vulnerable to toxins from absorption.
In further analysis, Chlorine is estimated to account for 9 percent of bladder cancer and 18 percent of rectal cancer cases.
"Taking long hot showers is a health risk... showers, and to a lesser extent baths, lead to a greater exposure to toxic chemicals contained in water supplies than does drinking it." -- NEW SCIENTIST, September 1986
Joseph M. Price, MD - "Chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times. It is an insidious poison."
As defined by the U.S. EPA, Chlorine is a pesticide whose sole purpose is to kill living organisms, essentially putting Chlorine in the same category with antibiotics. A well-founded concern about Chlorine comes from a study carried out in Hartford Connecticut stating, "Women with breast cancer have 50% to 60% higer levels of organochlorines (chlorination byproducts) in their breast tissue than women without breast cancer."
Remember, when you shower, the warm water quickly opens the skin's pores and all the contaminants, especially Chlorine, are absorbed and then transfered into the blood stream. Once in the bloodstream, Chlorine will scar and damage the arteries causing cholesterol to attach to the artery wall increasing the risks of atherosclerosis, strokes and heart disease. Not until chlorination of municipal drinking water became common at the turn of the 20th century, did heart disease begin to skyrocket. Up to 2/3 of our harmful exposure to Chlorine comes from inhalation of steam and skin absorption while showering. The same is especially true when swimming in Chlorinated pools. If the pool heavily smells of Chlorine, DON'T GO NEAR IT! In fact, swimmings pools in most of Europe are NOT chlorinated.
The health benefits of properly filtered shower and/or bath water are impressive, and at the end of day, installing one of our shower filters is a smart decision. If you suffer from dryness of the skin or scalp, dandruff, any skin condition or respiratory disorder, it's even more important that you are bathing in purified water.
The CRYSTAL QUEST shower filter was awarded "Best Buys" in the August 2006 issue of Consumers Digest magazine.
To work most effectively and be eco-friendly, we recommend combining the filter with a high quality low-flow shower head that conform to the 2.5 gallons per minute flow rate specified by the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 1992. A low-flow water saving shower head can cut your water bill significantly over the period of a year.
Dollar for dollar, installing one of our bath or shower filters is a quick, easy and small investment with huge health and beauty rewards.
