You guys ever used a steam room? Or used your shower to inhale hot steam in bathroom?

    Check out this article:

    Steam bathing whether it be dry (sauna) or wet (steam) has been considered as one of the simplest ways to rid the body of toxins. As the pores in the skin open up millions of sweat glands start to excrete, the body rids itself of metabolic and other waste products. Sweat contains almost the same elements as urine and for this reason, the skin is sometimes called the third kidney. It is estimated that as much as 30% of bodily wastes are eliminated by way of perspiration.

    Another benefit of steam bathing is that it has a stimulating effect on the cardiovascular system. The pulse rate increases from 75 beats per minute (average) to between 100 – 150 beats per minute during a 15 – 20 minute session. This increases blood circulation but not blood pressure, since the heat causes the tiny blood vessels in the skin to expand, accommodating the increased blood flow.



    I use to always wonder why my heart rate use to go up like crazy...

    interesting....

    That first paragraph you quoted basically said sweating in a steam room is basically your skin pissing. And it would be obvious to say others were previously in the steam room. So you would be sitting in thier "piss" and depending how the system works in the steam room you could even be breathing in the "piss". This makes me scared to ever go in a steam room again, luckily i have a terrible memory and will have forgotten this by the next time i go for a steam.
