Why do you sometimes get burning, itchy, red eyes when you swim in a pool? You've always been told that it's the chlorine right? The real answer is not so simple. Take a seat. The C.D.C. just released a statement explaining that chlorine binds itself to the bacteria that it's trying to destroy, like pee and sweat! It's that chemical bond to the yuck that irritates your eyes!

Be part of the solution by showering before taking a dip, and for the love of all that is holy-NO PEEING IN THE POOL!
