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.
Effects of water pollution on human health-Part-1
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. (water pollution)
Pollution can be caused by several 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 through 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 pulp and paper, sugar, textiles, electroplating, and pesticides.
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.
Water Pollution on human health-Part-2
The primary cause of water pollution is the various industrial wastewaterss 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 by bacterial infections, viral infections, fungal infections, etc. (water pollution)
The example of bacterial infections are
4. Hansen’s disease.
Example of Viral infection disease
An example of fungal infection
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? (water pollution)
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 deaths of two people.
Water Pollution on human health-Part-3
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 the previous 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. (water pollution)
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 there is 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 difficulties in human life. So, should we not be serious? Next time, we talk about a different topic, water. In the final word, we will be conscious of our water.
