"Taking long hot showers is a health risk, according to research presented last week in Anaheim, California, at a meeting of the American Chemical Society. Showers and to a lesser extent baths lead to a greater exposure to toxic chemicals contained in water supplies than does drinking the water. The chemicals evaporate out of the water and are inhaled. They can also spread through the house and be inhaled by others. Householders can receive 6 to l00 times more of the chemical by breathing the air around showers and bath than they would by drinking the water. "NEW SCIENTIST 18 SEPTEMBER 1986 --Ian Anderson
“The National Academy of Sciences states that people die in the United States each year from cancers caused by ingesting the contaminants in water. The major health threat posed by these pollutants is far more likely to be from their inhalation as air pollutants. The reason that emissions are high is that water droplets dispersed by the shower head have a larger surface-to-volume ratio than water streaming into the bath.” SCIENCE NEWS, VOL. 130 --Janet Raloff
Expensive bottled water is no safer than ordinary tap water and it can actually be worse, say researchers. Consumers across America are paying 1,000 times the cost of tap water for $1-a-gallon bottled waters sold in supermarkets or delivered to their homes. But a recent study by the State of California found that bottled water contains many substances that exceed federal drinking water standards.
Dr. Joseph LaDou, acting chief of the division of occupational and environmental medicine at the University of California, agreed that bottled water is "no safer or healthier than ordinary tap water." "They just taste better because they aren't chlorinated, " he explained. "But these waters typically contain as much or more asbestos, dry cleaning fluid and other volatile compounds as does tap water."
