Does chlorine affect asthma in the long term?

Asthma and Chlorine

This means that large amounts of exposure to chlorine over time may actually cause people to develop asthma. Fortunately, these effects are reversible. Those with chlorine-induced asthma will notice an improvement after reducing their exposure to chlorine.
