Chlorine has been clearly linked to ovarian cancer. While the testing
has not been completed to establish the link between testicular cancer
and chlorine it is assumed that this is the case. This is why community
water systems have limits on the levels of chlorine they are allowed to
add to the water and why water is much less heavily chlorinated than it
was 20 years ago. Chlorox baths will very probably kill you eventually.
