Can inorganic compounds like fluoride and chlorine be absorbed through skin and inhaled? What are your expert opinions?
Clearly supported: In 1997, the EPA concluded that a person can absorb more contaminants from bathing and showering than from drinking polluted water. Studies done by Brown, Bishop and Rowan in the early 1980s showed that an average of 64 percent of the total dose of waterborne contaminants (including fluoride) are absorbed through the skin. A study by British researchers at the Health and Safety Laboratory in Sheffield published in the February 19, 2000 issue of Human Experimental Toxicology suggests that toxicants such as fluorides can be stored in the skin and released over a period of time. The failure to account for inhalation and dermal exposures to fluorides is the most significant flaw in Fluoride research. It invalidates all dosage conclusions based solely on ingestion. Among other health hazards, Fluoride also increases your risk for cancer: ...Read more
I inhaled to much chlorine while washing the bathroom with bleach and I am having difficulty breathing. I cleaned it in a closed room.
It is imperative: that you leave the bathroom and get fresh air (out doors). Chlorine is denser than air -so don't lie in a low area. Seek medical care as soon as possible. In the United States - we usually have the fire department enter the room first to ensure that cause of chlorine gas is removed and that area is properly ventilated. ...Read more

Sometimes when i inhale my left side of my chest has sharp pains . I also have gas issues . Could that be the reason why I have these sharp pains?
That is unusual...: In medicine, some weird reaction/effect can happen with almost anything. Inhalers to treat asthma/copd/wheezing etc...can cause many side effects--increase heart rate/palpitation, jitteriness, sorethroat, thrush, dry mouth, altered tastes, headaches, at times more difficulty with breathing, higher risk of infections etc... if stopping the inhaler and gas problem resolves, then likely. Good luck. ...Read more

Avoid this.: Most stoves burn natural gas (methane), but some burn propane. Breathing either kind of gas is unhealthy, because it lowers the amount of oxygen which is being inhaled. A few moments of exposure in a well-ventilated room is not an issue, but prolonged exposure (as you described) should be avoided. However, the symptoms are usually immediate, not delayed. ...Read more
