The recent study on Chlorine use in pool water have revealed a disturbing fact that, it is chlorine in pool water that is in fact creating a surge of asthma among the children, especially in the developed countries around the world. The suggest was conducted by the famous group of environmental and occupational medicine specialists. In fact, the reason behind asthma producing among the children is because usage of chlorine for water disinfections in pool water results in some sort of gas byproduct creation around the pool side.

The chlorine used to disinfect indoor swimming pools may be implicated in the surge of childhood asthma in developed countries, suggests research in Occupational and Environmental Medicine. This byproduct is created when the used chorine gets in contact with organic stuff such as sweat or urine in the pool and this gas can be inhaled by the occupants of the pool and cause in asthma.

The recent study had conducted the research based on some empirical results found from a number of swimming kids who had been swimming for a long time. These children had been tested for asthma before and after swimming into indoor pools. And the final result of the examination conducted have been able to show prevalent relationship between use of chorine in inside pools and the rising level of childhood asthma. This inhaling of chlorine gas also destroys some cellular barriers in the inhaling system of the children and make the children more allergic to outside stuff. In order to get away from this, you better use less chlorinated water and more frequent weekly pool service done in your indoor swimming pool.
