Although, dams would be helping some areas, they are harsh to the areas around them. Another issue caused by subtractability is the killing of fish. By using dams for resources such as electricity is helping some, yet it is blocking water passage and also the organisms that live in the water. Damnation spent a lot of the documentary analysing the dams in Washington’s lower Snake River. They said that many now see it as part of the landscape and are almost immune to it, they do not realise the dams and the issues it’s causing.
According to CQ Researcher’s Cooper “More than a billion people around the world lack access to safe drinking water and their numbers are growing”(Water Shortage). Is it fair that so many people must go without water while thousands of gallons are wasted here in the United States? Cooper in addition commented that “unlike the vast majority of natural resources water often is seen as a free commodity like the air we breathe” (Water Shortage). Without seeing water as something worth conserving, we literally pour away our most valuable resource. We can not afford this; water shortages already ravage the majority of the world: “If per-capita water consumption continues to rise at current rates, humans will take more than 90 percent of all available fresh water by 2025, leaving only 10 percent of the earth’s fresh water for all animals and plants on the planet” (Cooper, Water Shortage).
If we banned bottled water then that portion of 780 million people would have to resort to their own supplies which could result in them getting seriously ill or even die. Yearly, 1.4 million children die from unavailable, clean drinking water; and 3.6 million a year from water-related diseases, 84% children, 98% are living in the developing world, digitalcommons.liberty.edu says. Children are dying because they don’t have access to clean drinking water, children that could grow up and do something great in this world. They don’t have the chance to do this though because they end up dying. We lose so many people and if we supplied bottled water to them we could decrease that.
Every ninety seconds a child dies because they didn’t have clean water? There is about one trillion dollars needed to fix the water crisis and there is only about 8 billion dollars a year donated for this cause. In the world about two billion people depend on wells for their clean drinking water. Almost all women and children spend at least 6 hours a day getting water for their families. One out of every ten people don’t have clean water.
Do you think you would be in as good health conditions if you were not provided with clean water that one takes for granted? Clean water is an essential natural resource that is critical to a human's health. Everywhere around the world people don't have access to clean drinking water, which can cause immediate or long term harm. Water is extremely safe and potable (drinkable) but in some cases, certain places don't have the right economy to raise money to afford clean water. People in these poverty areas are forced to drink sources of contaminated water which can contain diseases such as vectors, pathogens, toxins, and suspended solids that could cause widespread acute and or chronic illnesses.
"By means of water, we give life to everything." – Koran, 21:30 Drinking water is our most precious resource, something every human being needs to survive. Yet today over 1.2 billion people a day on average do not have access to drinking water. Even if they might have this access, the chances are good that the drinking water is polluted with many contaminants. In the future, we will probably find that clean drinking water will go to the highest bidder, and even more people will find themselves without easy access to drinking water.
People’s life span is lowering due to this life threat, at an older age. It is spreading like an erupting volcano among us and anyone can be the next fatality. Destructively, diabetes is leaving scars in our life that might demolish many families. Through a research, it has been found that diabetes costs Americans 245 billion dollars, annually, 13,700 dollars each affected household and, still, one person in every three minutes is facing death because of this uncured curse. However, half of us aren’t exposed to the true faces of diabetes that can truly be treated with no financial budget, if commitment and diligence become our slaves.
2). Proposing inexpensive, manageable coverage for everybody. 3). Accentuating deterrence agendas in the public health setting (Anderson, K. 2009). Before Obamacare was passed, millions of Americans were uninsured, suffered and died prematurely each year since lack of health insurance.
Today, we stand at the world`s biggest crisis which is the lack of access to safe drinking water and sanitation. Most of the solutions to the issue, must be funded and not taken for granted considering water is necessary for the survival of all living things. The issue of unsanitary water is commonly found in most developing countries. First of all, 884 million people are not using or drinking clean water resulting in deaths with an average of 3 million people. Also, about 24,000 children are dying due to preventable diseases like diarrhea, which is why the United Nations (U.N.) made a new resolution that claims water is a human right and should be available for everyone.
But in reality, every three minutes an innocent child dies from cancer. Not only that, but all childhood cancers combined get a very small portion of awareness and funding. With hardly any funding, the kids can’t get the medicines and drugs that they need to fight cancer. In order to get the funding that is so badly needed, awareness is extremely important. With less than four percent of all government cancer funding, children with cancer need our voice to help them get the funding and awareness that they need.
