Hi, I am new at this!
a girl at the school where I work develops a cough after swimming. So...
dry drowning!? No!! Reaction to swimming pool chemicals? Yes.... And guess what? 'Medical research', has found, that gases from disinfectant
agents hover inches above the water (nose level). 'Research', has looked into the effects of the gases on immature lungs, promoting asthma.
FINDING: The benefits of exercise, out way the damage to babies lungs!
