You get more toxic exposure from taking a shower than from drinking the same water.
Chlorine and your shower:
Tests show that your body can absorb more chlorine as a result of a 10 minute shower than if you drink 8 glasses of the same water.
A warm shower opens up your pores, causing your skin to act like a sponge. As a result, you not only inhale the chlorine vapors, you absorb them through your skin, directly into your bloodstream - at a rate of 6 times higher than drinking it.
Chlorine is universally used to control the germs and bacteria in water. Your skin is our body's largest organ and is entirely chlorine absorbent.
Chlorine also vaporizes in the shower where it is inhaled and transferred directly into their blood system and then transported throughout the body.
