Hot Summer Months Bring Chlorine and Toxin Risks For Swimmers

For anyone concerned with the dangers of chlorine and other environmental toxins, these products can provide peace of mind.

With summer here, many families plan on beach and swimming pool outings to keep cool. However, pools expose us to large concentrations of chlorine while our polluted local beaches may expose us to other toxins. Bioray, a company dedicated to protecting families from environmental toxins, raises some interesting questions regarding the water quality of pools and beaches.

A report from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has people reaching for their natural detox products, especially those who are headed to the beach or swimming pools. Many of America’s beaches are filled with pollution from storm water, boats, and sewage lines while swimming pools expose us to large concentrations of chlorine that some experts concerned about long and short-term chlorine exposure. Can these toxins be harmful to you and your families health?

A study published in an issue of Occupational and Environmental Medicine demonstrates the chlorine used in swimming pools that sting your eyes and irritate your skin can also disrupt the sensitive tissue of your lungs. This is associated to the destruction of the cellular barriers that protect the deep lung (respiratory epithelium), making them “leaky” and more vulnerable to the passage of allergens. The effects were the same for children wherever they lived and they were strongest in the youngest children.

“Swimming is such a beneficial activity for everyone, especially kids. We are proud that Bioray can offer a safe, natural product to help mitigate potential irritations from exposure.” said product specialist Tami Wilken.

To minimize the effects chlorine and other toxins can have on you and your child, Bioray suggests taking 3 to 5 drops of NDF® or NDF Plus® before or immediately after swimming. Research has shown NDF® binds to free chlorine additive, the specific type used for spas and swimming pools, as well as dioxin, PCBs, lindane and other chemicals.

After NDF® is added to chlorinated water, the chlorine can no longer be detected using a conventional ‘free chlorine’ specific dipstick. Given that NDF’s method of action is achieved thru its ion exchange resin activity, micronized cell wall and its constituents that bind to these chemicals; it has proven effective in sequestering chlorine from water. Both NDF® and NDF Plus® are effective in the removal of organochlorides (chlorine).

Bioray suggests those looking for water quality information to visit the National Resources Defense Council website whose online water quality tool, can assist consumers of the safest and least polluted beaches in their area. With approximately 301 million swimming visits each year by persons over the age of six in the United States in 2009 alone, this tool comes at the perfect time.

“BIORAY’s NDF® or NDF Plus® is the perfect support for all swimmers. They are effective herbal dietary supplements that remove environmental toxins, which helps to minimize the negative effects chlorine and other toxins have on all of us, including our children. For anyone concerned with the dangers of chlorine and other environmental toxins, these products can provide peace of mind.” said Wilken.
