Evaluating Risk Factors: Chlorinated Water
Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as using chlorinated water — that affect you.
Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.
In the Environmental Risk Factors
section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™
will ask the following question about using chlorinated water:
Are you exposed to chlorinated water either by drinking or bathing?
→ Don't know
→ Yes, I use it for bathing only
→ Yes, I use it for drinking and bathing
The Diagnostic Process
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either not using chlorinated water or using water treated with chlorine, The Analyst™
will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
|Chlorination, the most widely used method of killing bacteria in water, is known to produce powerful carcinogenic residues, including Dioxin. Studies have shown that the risk of bladder cancer is doubled if you drink chlorine treated water.|Vitamin E Requirement
|Chlorination destroys Vitamin E in the body, which can lead to heart problems, and has been linked to clogged arteries.|
