Chlo­rine ‘a quick fix’

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

IT IS in­ter­est­ing to note that in Ger­many it is il­le­gal to put chlo­rine, other dis­in­fec­tants or any chem­i­cal in drink­ing wa­ter.

They won’t al­low chlo­rine be­cause they see it as lazy prac­tice, not only cov­er­ing up sources of con­tam­i­na­tion, but also mak­ing them im­pos­si­ble to track down and fix, they be­lieve peo­ple are well enough in­formed to man­age their own di­ets and med­i­ca­tion (eg flu­o­ride) should not be forced on them and the jury is still out on the health im­pacts of these chem­i­cals in higher than nat­u­ral con­cen­tra­tions.
