Drinking and bathing in contaminated water is bad enough but when we add more chemicals to the water, in hopes of making it safer, we actually add more problems to it. Swimming pools have multiple health challenges related to them. In this post and podcast, we will go over these issues and what guidelines you need to know.
 

The main three water contaminants

First, there are bacterial pathogens which are many, including MRSA. In swimming pools there are the even more due to what others carry on their body, and from outside sources in the air and from the city water.
 
Second, are the cysts, or protozoans. These include such organisms as giardia.
 
Third, there are viruses.
 

The three common dangerous chemicals added to water

Chlorine is added to water but its harmful effects are worsened when it reacts with other chemicals, organic vegetation and is detrimental to humans.
 
Chloramines are used by cities as alternate disinfectants. Most cities use chloramines in their water supply. When added to swimming pools the chloramine reacts with chlorine, urine and sweat from people using the pool and it outgases. This gas hovers over the surface of the water where it is most dangerous. It is ingested and inhaled when we swim in this water. A common symptom of this harmful gas is asthma and other respiratory issues. Chloramines are also known to effect female hormones as a reproductive toxin.
 
Disinfecting bi-products are called trihalomethanes or THM’s. THM’s are the worst. They are also in city water and are extremely dangerous whether from bathing, showering, or ingesting. They are known to be carcinogenic, especially effecting the bladder and colon. They are toxic to the central nervous system, are linked to heart, kidney and lung disease, and effect the female reproductive system. They are known to be the cause of miscarriage. There is no safe level of THM’s. You can get your drinking water checked from the resources at the bottom of this page but the best course is to use a quality water purifier.
 
In my podcast interview with water expert, Robert Slovak, we discuss in further detail the solutions around these problems and how you can protect your family best from them.
 
We must provide pure water for our kids, especially for our children with autism. They have compromised immune systems and poor detoxification pathways which make it harder to excrete the dangerous contaminants in most water. Please see the Aquatru water filter link below for one of the best filters on the market. It was developed by water expert, Robert Slovak.

Robert Slovak’s Biography:   

Robert Slovak is a degreed Mechanical and Astronautical engineer, best known as the co-founder, with his brother Jack, of Water Factory Systems in the early 1970’s. He is recognized as one of the key developers of Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology and its numerous applications.

After the sale of his company to a multi-national leader in water technology in 1990, Robert went on to bring his knowledge and experience to Brazil and other underdeveloped nations. During this period Robert maintained his presence in the American water industry as a consultant and regular speaker at water technology conferences.

Since 2006 Robert masterminded and promoted a new paradigm he refers to as “Water & Wellness” in which pure, contaminant-free water is combined with highly effective nutraceutical additives to support the health needs of a wide diversity of the population including prenatal, developing, aging, health-compromised and special-needs.
