This is an interesting subject as we often think our shower is the most hygienic way of keeping ourselves clean and healthy. Apparently not so. According to a team from the University of Colorado after intensive research found that some household shower heads contain a strain of lung-disease causing bacteria, which is known as mycobacteria. This bacteria appears as a film of thin green slime and that can result in a lung infection that may cause coughing, shortness of breath, fatigue and weight loss which if infected can take at least 12 months of antibiotics to treat. Metal shower heads were found to have significantly than plastic ones (probably because the plastic has more chemicals that stop the growth) . They also found tap water was more contaminated than tank water. It is also interesting to note that this bacteria is resistant to chlorine. The suggestion is that you need to take the shower head off at least once a month and give it a good clean.
My suggestion is of course the Enagic shower system called Anespa DX.
