(HealthNewsDigest.com) - WASHINGTON, June 10, 2014 - The swimming pools are open for the season, and that means a chance to splash, play and yes, pee, in the pool. But new research shows swimmers may want to think twice before "going" in the water. Jing Li, Ernest Blatchley and colleagues are reporting that urine mixed with chlorine can produce harmful byproducts. The two main culprits, cyanogen chloride and trichloramine, have been linked to lung problems, as well as heart and nervous system damage. In the American Chemical Society's (ACS') newest Breakthrough Science video, Blatchley and Li explain how urine causes this reaction, and what swimmers can do to stay safe. The video is available at http://youtu.be/2EWtsxDRP2o
