I was recently reading about the effects chlorine has on human lungs and skin. My curiosity started after using Clorox Bleach to clean my floor and seeing my dog run upstairs faster than a Winchester .223 Super Short Magnum. That got me curious… is it that chlorine is that bad? What are the long term effects on humans?
Chlorine is a poisonous gas with a choking odor. According to dhs.wi.gov, the short-term effects of high chlorine exposure are nose, throat, and eye irritation, coughing, difficulty breathing, vomiting, and skin irritation. And the long-term effects include long and teeth corrosion. It is also said that people who smoke and/or drink alcohol and people with preexisting lung or heart disease are more sensitive to the effects of chlorine.
What About Our Children?
If my dog ran away so fast from smelling chlorine, what happens to our children when they are exposed to it and to other house cleaning products? It is said that children drink more water, eat more food and breathe more air than adults when you compare it pound for pound of body weight. So children are more vulnerable to chlorine and other chemical toxicants than adults. Of course, this is assuming you do not bleach your children’s toys and clothes, or that would make it even worse.
Also, according to the U.S. EPA, chlorine is a pesticide whose sole purpose is to kill living organisms. So, when we drink water or shower with water containing chlorine, what is it killing? Dr. Robert Carlson, a highly respected University of Minnesota researcher whose work is sponsored by the Federal Environmental Protection Agency, sums it all up by saying, “the chlorine problem is similar than that of air pollution… chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times!”
So Here Is The Solution:
You do not have to live in a toxic environment. You can have a clean home that is free of poisonous cleaning chemicals at the same time. Find something safe for you and your loved ones. Get a product that kills bacteria and cleanses your floor and surfaces that does not contain chlorine bleach, amonia, or any other “cleaning” toxicant ingredient. I strongly recommend Melamagic Heavy-Duty Cleaner which is 4 X concentrated and will give you up to 32 gallons worth of high quality product. It is also very inexpensive and eco-friendly.
