Chlorine is a greenish-yellow, noncombustible gas at room temperature and atmospheric pressure. The intermediate water solubility
of chlorine accounts for its effect on the upper airway and the lower respiratory tract. Exposure to chlorine gas may be
prolonged because its moderate water solubility may not cause upper airway symptoms for several minutes. In addition, the density
of the gas is greater than that of air, causing it to remain near ground level and increasing exposure time. The odor threshold
for chlorine is approximately 0.3-0.5 parts per million (ppm); however, distinguishing toxic air levels from permissible air levels
may be difficult until irritative symptoms are present.
Chlorine gas is a pulmonary irritant with intermediate water solubility that causes acute damage in the upper and lower respiratory
tract. Elemental chlorine and its derivatives, hydrochloric and hypochlorous acids, may cause biological injury.
In animal models of chlorine gas toxicity, immediate respiratory arrest occurs at 2000 ppm, with the lethal concentration for 50% of
exposed animals in the range of 800-1000 ppm. Bronchial constriction occurs in the 200-ppm range with evidence of effects on ciliary
activity at exposure levels as low as 18 ppm. With acute exposures of 50 ppm and subacute inhalation as low as 9.0 ppm, chemical
pneumonitis and bronchiolitis obliterans have been noted. Mild focal irritation of the nose and trachea without lower respiratory
effects occur at 2.0 ppm.
Numerous scientific studies report that chlorinated water is a skin irritant and can be associated with rashes like eczema. Chlorinated
water can destroy polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E in the body while generating toxins capable of free radical damage (oxidation).
Chlorinated water destroys much of the intestinal flora, the friendly bacteria that help in the digestion of food and which protect the
body from harmful pathogens.
Chlorinated water contains chemical compounds called trihalomethanes which are carcinogens resulting from the combination of chlorine with
organic compounds in water. These chemicals, also known as organochlorides, do not degrade very well and are generally stored in the fatty
tissues of the body (breast, other fatty areas, mother's milk, blood and semen). Organochlorides can cause mutations by altering DNA,
supress immune function and interfere with the natural controls of cell growth.
Chlorine has been documented to aggravate asthma, especially in those children who make frequent use of chlorinated swimming pools. Several
studies also link chlorine and chlorinated by-products to a greater incidence of bladder, breast and bowel cancer as well as malignant
melanoma. One study even links the use of chlorinated tap water to congenital cardiac anomalies.
Chlorine Toxicity Limits
The exact levels where chlorine becomes toxic is not clear. About 0.2-0.5 mcg. intake daily is probably safe. Below 0.2 ppm is considered
current normal ranges for body chlorine levels. There should not be any inorganic chlorine present in the body.
