The effects of water pollution on human health.


The effects of water pollution on human health.


The main problem of water
pollution is that the sources are contaminated with chemicals and foreign
substances. So, in turn, it creates a health risk to humans, animals, plants,
and marine life. There is a lack of drinking water sources, which can be
harmful and even deadly. Here is some basic information about water pollution.

 

 I wanted to look at the three main types of water sources.
FireWe have underground water that is found deep within this earth, and it
fills the gaps on the surface of the Aqua fire water which includes lakes,
rivers, reservoirs, ponds, and oceans.

 

 There are glaciers and ice caps on the earth, and this
part is huge. You can see that most of the water on earth stays in the ocean
when the freshwater breaks down, You also notice that most freshwater is in
glaciers and ice caps, so the amount of excess water is very limited for
us. 

 

Water can be polluted in a variety of ways. One of the ways
water becomes contaminated is through non-point-source pollution. Pollution can
be caused by several different things, such as agricultural runoff, discarded
landfill trash in the water, poorly maintained building site sediment, and bacteria
and nutrients from animal and pet waste. Water primarily results from this.
Although individuals don’t intentionally contaminate our water, pollution does
not come from an indirect source. Yet, it still occurs, so it is critical to
spread awareness of the issue.

 

Another way for water to become contaminated is by point source
contamination, or pollution coming directly from a source. For example, spills
of chemicals or liquids It is a visual representation of how to draw attention
to and reduce day-to-day pollution. Farmland runoff is what causes it to be produced.
rural homes and cities’ streets.

 

According to reports, household sewage is responsible for 75–80%
of all water pollution. Water is being contaminated by waste from the pulp and
paper, sugar, textile, electroplating, and pesticide industries. Large amounts
of untreated residential sewage are discharged into rivers. Domestic sewage
contains toxins, solid waste, plastic litter, and bacterial pollutants, and
these toxins produce water contamination. 

 

The primary cause of water pollution is the various industrial
wastewater that is discharged into rivers without being treated. So, there are
lots of ways to pollute water and the environment. Let’s know how pollution has
a bad impact on the human body.

 

If we drink and use contaminated water, it will affect our skin,
stomach, respiratory system, overall body, etc. It is sometimes the cause of
death.

Water is important for our life besides the fact that it might
be the cause of various diseases. Skin disease is a common problem that is
caused by polluted water. The skin may be affected 

 

bacterial infections, viral infections, fungal infections, etc.
The example of bacterial infections are

1.    
Impetigo

2.    
Boils

3.    
Cellulitis

4.    
Hansen’s disease.

Example of Viral infections disease

1.    
Measles.

2.    
Chickenpox.

3.    
Warts.

4.    
Ingles

Example of fungal infection

1.    
Ringworm.

2.    
Nail Fungus.

3.    
Yeast infection

4.    
Oral thrush.

5.    
Diaper rash

 

Drinking water that is microbiologically contaminated can spread
diseases like cholera, dysentery, typhoid, polio, and diarrhea and is thought
to be responsible for 485 000 diarrhea-related deaths annually. So can you
imagine what the rest of the death ratio is?

 

The effects of water pollution on human health.


It is a bacterium that can lead to severe diarrhea, fever,
nausea, stomach discomfort, and parasitic headache conditions. Cryptobiosis I
is an illustration. It is a disease that affects people all over the world and
has symptoms such as loose or watery diarrhea, cramps, and pain in the stomach.
It is also resistant to disinfection and can affect the immune system and viral
diseases, such as hepatitis, which is brought on by contaminated water and
affects the liver.

 

You also have symptoms such as jaundice, loss of appetite,
fatigue, malaise, and high fever, as many know, hepatitis can be fatal,
resulting in the death of two people. 

 

  Polluted water has a major negative effect on women
who are exposed to chemicals during pregnancy. 1.8 million children under the
age of 5 die each year from diarrheal diseases and pneumonia.

 Although this mainly happens in third-world countries, it
can happen anywhere if we don’t take care of our water sources. now according
to before statement showing the negative health effects that pollution as far as
human health is concerned, In the upper right corner, you can see that water
pollution mainly affects the human being’s digestive system, but if the
pollution is very bad, it can spread to other parts of the body. 

I just wanted to quickly talk about how water pollution affects
our environment. And it can harm human health, where poor water quality
destroys agricultural production and insects kill food. This interrupts the
food chain. Fish absorb high levels of the metal and in turn, make it unfit for
human consumption. it reduces the amount of oxygen in the water, so less oxygen
for animals and plants to take in, which can lead to death.

 

End of the topic, We have known about how polluted water creates
a difficulty in human life. So, should not we be serious? Next time we talk
about a different topic of water. Final word, we will conscious about our water.
