I had never heard of a shower purifier before. Thanks for the post though, I'll have to check them out now.

Hey, what are friends for -- lookin' out for each other's health among other things :!: :wink:

ya so anyway the point is that if we care enough about water chemicals to drink purified water, then we are only protecting ourselves half the time. YOur skin absords all the chemicals that you wouldnt drink by mouth -- so it ultimately still ends up in your body. It is just that it is taken in thru your skin and not your mouth.

So he who has a problem/concern with drinking tap water, should definitely also get a shower filter.

peace :D

No.

I would just be happy if our shower gave hot water consistently - especially at this time of year. :roll:

Will, ya you should probably check them out because it just occured to me that if you might be bathing your cute little boy in chemical laden water :shock: and maybe not realizing the extent to which he is absorbing all that shit thru his skin . :shock: I know that I myself didnt even know about this until recently, although I remember that this was one suggestions in a book that I had skimmed a long while back. I had just forgotten about it though and the book wasnt very credible. But I have read this same thing about taking it in thru the skin recently in much more credible sources so it got my attention this time. That and the fact that my dad wears this pain patch where the meds are absorbed through the skin and into his bloodstream so that is further proof of the claim of "Absortion through the skin." Another proof is to take a piece of garlic, put it in your shoe and walk around with no socks in your shoes. Apparently, you will taste the garlic in your mouth (even though you were exposed to it underneat your feet skin) in a matter of a short while thereafter b/c again, it is absorbed through your skin!! :shock: :shock: :shock: So somebody should really try that experiment at home and tell us what happens! Plus, it just makes common sense anyway when you think about it, seeing how your skin is such a large organ with so many pores all over.

Only pain in the ass thing though is that since the filter is hooked up to the shower head, if you want to fill the bath tub up with purified water then you have to fill it up from the shower head, not the other fosset thing in the bathtub. This I am sure takes longer. But at least we would be soaking and bathing in pure water, not a chlorine, lead, arsenic, etc. and other heavy metal party! :D
