Hello! Many says YES, a chlorinated water is safe to drink, although some people object to the taste. We know that chlorine is added to drinking water to kill pathogens. While chlorine does provide this protection, it also can combine with naturally occurring nontoxic chemicals to form compounds that may cause cancer. The results are called reaction products. So do you think its still safe to drink? What's your opinion on this?
