In brief: Chlorine effects
Chlorine may indirectly contribute to allergies by irritating and sensitizing the respiratory tract.
Studies have suggested that frequent swimming in chlorinated pools and exposure to cleaning products containing chlorine may increase the risk of developing asthma and other respiratory allergies, both in adolescents and in adults.
