Pre-washed lettuce and chlorine. What's the link?

An interesting article appeared in the Globe and Mail (written by Heidi Sopinka) today letting “us” know that pre-washed lettuce means presoaked in chlorine. “Byproducts of chlorine have been found to be toxic; they accumulate in the body and have been linked to cancer, birth defects and reproductive disorders.”

We just did an e-bulletin on bleach (solution of chlorine) so take a look for more info.
