An article found on the BBC (http://newsvote.bbc.co.uk/mpapps/pagetools/print/news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8254206.stm?ad=1) states that bacteria can be inhaled in the shower and can lead to health issues. From the article:
Showering may be bad for your health, say US scientists, who have shown that dirty shower heads can deliver a face full of harmful bacteria. Tests revealed nearly a third of devices harbour significant levels of a bug that causes lung disease. Levels of Mycobacterium avium were 100 times higher than those found in typical household water supplies. M. avium forms a biofilm that clings to the inside of the shower head, reports the National Academy of Science.
Showers have also been identified as a route for spreading other infectious diseases, including a type of pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease and chest infections with a bacterium called Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Hot tubs and spa pools carry a similar infection risk, according to the Health Protection Agency.
Biostel Water Services can help clean these water sources by using a safe, non-toxic, environmentally friendly solution that is CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) approved. Throw out toxic chemicals like chlorine and bleach and replace it with our environmentally safe water treatment.
