While bleach isn't toxic to the body, the chemical reactions that often occur with chlorine produce a number of very toxic elements. For example, mixing it with certain household cleaners can be hazardous. If you mix an acid cleaner with bleach, it generates a toxic chlorine gas. Additionally, bleach can react violently with hydrogen peroxide and produce toxic oxygen gas. Another dangerous mix is to combine bleach with ammonia solutions (example—urine) which produces toxic chloramines. This gas can actually cause the lungs to stop functioning. Even worse, mixing chlorine with dish soap produces mustard gas, the same gas used to kill many people during World War I. Bleach is dangerous. It is as simple as that.

In 2002 the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents estimated that there are about 3,300 accidents needing hospital treatment caused by sodium hypochlorite each year.
Sodium Hypochlorite reacts with many reagents, even sunlight, to produce chlorine gas, which in enclosed environments can be a severe lung irritant. Because bleach also contains NaOH (caustic soda), contact with the skin will cause burns due to the NaOH destroying the fatty tissue and oils. 

NCA studies show stay-at-home wives have a 54% higher chance of getting cancer than women who work outside the home. It is believed that this is because they are exposed more to chemicals released by household cleaners, including bleach.
