Wondering if chemicles in pool water are harmful to liver...
I started swimming soon after I finished tx. I was wondering if it is safe to do, plus, what about hair color & nail polish? I use all organic soaps & lotions. I lost 80% of my hair but when it grows back I would like to color it. I feel I can't be too careful.

I have been swimming all thru tx. I wear a swim cap. Not a problem for me. Hair is fried anyway. I do use conditioner under my cap.

Here's an irony. In late 2010 my liver enzymes were elevated. I asked the doctor to retest a few months later, because I couldn't figure out why I would have a funky liver. I started thinking the chlorine in the pool was affecting my liver. Lo and behold, I retest and find out I'm hep c positive.
Anyway, exercise can only be good for ya!
