Name: Water Pollution Instructor: Date: Abstract Water pollution is a serious problem for the whole world. It threatens the health, humans, plants, and animals. As the world became more industrial and smaller due to communications and trade, unplanned and dangerous dumping has contributed to the problem of sea pollution. All water pollution is dangerous to the health of living organisms, but sea and river pollution can be especially harmful to the health of humans and animals. Rivers and seas are used as main sources of clean water by populations all over the world.
Effects of Water Pollution Water pollution is drastically affecting the life of living beings. Both domestic and industrial reasons are contributing to water pollution. Excessive use of SOAP, soda, bleaching powder detergent or acid at home and use of acid and other salts in the industries are primarily responsible for water pollution. Water pollution has emerged as one of the most serious environmental threats in India. Urban sewage and industrial waste that flowes into the rivers without being refined.
There are many dangers lurking in contaminated groundwater. Drinking the contaminated water can result in diseases, such as hepatitis, poisoning, and certain types of cancer. Microorganisms, such as bacteria or parasites, can infect groundwater and can be ingested from drinking the water or from leisure activities. For example, a mother that is bottle feeding her baby might incidentally be poisoning her child with pesticides, nitrates, or atmospheric pollutants. Children, the elderly and pregnant woman are most susceptible to the adverse effects of groundwater contamination.
In some places, people suffer from diseases related to water contamination because the water that is available to them is the water that is available to them is the water that is being contaminated. “Waterborne diseases are diseases contracted from consuming water contaminated with human or animal feces, which takes place often in areas where sewage systems and other filtering technology are limited. Waterborne diseases include diarrhea, cholera, malaria, and dengue.” (Waterborne Diseases, 2011). Even though people may have been treated for these waterborne diseases, they often get the same disease again because they are forced to drink from the same water. In many developing countries, the main cause of death is diarrhea contracted by drinking water.
Fish, plants, water and other organisms are living in our ecosystems. This type of pollution is not only harming them now, but will continue to harm them in the future. There are many ways how water pollution is harming our ecosystem, whether it is oil spills, marine dumping, nuclear waste, or atmospheric pollution, it is all harming water. Underground storage leakages play a role, yes, they are useful in many ways, but they are also very harmful. “Over time the steel corrodes and causes leakages, affecting soil and groundwater” (“Underground Storage Leakages” 1).
Excellent hygiene in nursing homes is a must. Residents that live there can easily get sick due to their medical condition, or they have a poor immune system. With all different types of bacteria and germs spread throughout a day, residents can be affected in a negative way. So with personal experience and some research, I am able to present to you the importance of hygiene of the residents' in nursing home care. If hygiene is subsided, there is a high possibility that a patient will get sick.
Bathing in the water that contains the S. Typhi bacteria may cause the bacteria to enter your body. Areas in which do not have sufficient bathrooms or waste water treatment are more likely to carry the infection. When feces contaminate the water bacteria can rapidly grow which poses a threat to people where Salmonella typhi are prevalent. Water treatment such as pur packet, lifestraw,biosand filter, and sun stove can help prevent people from being contaminated with the parasites. For these reasons, the disease is common in areas with poor sanitation and inadequate water treatment.
Much of Earth’s water is contaminated with chemicals and more water is being polluted each day. The sad fact is that the pollutants are being dumped into the water by man himself. We are slowly, and knowingly, killing off our own kind. Industrial processes all over the world are contaminating fresh water sources with biochemical waste. This waste makes its way into homes is causing unspeakable illnesses and in too many cases death.
Theses kinds of things come from plants that have a drainage system that runs off into the water and they dumb the things that they won’t need anymore. These chemicals can be very harmful to animals. When sewage is thrown into the water an organic substance occurs. With this happening the water loses oxygen and with the lack of oxygen it can kill all of the aquatic organisms. Whe... ... middle of paper ... ... things that to be recycled can be and the things that need to be thrown out can be done to.
Consequently, these pollutants are continuously contaminating the air and the water, two major elements for the survival of human. Furthermore, when human inhale and drink these contaminated air and water suffers from various life threatening diseases. The inappropriate dumping of industrial wastes is also responsible for water and soil pollution. Chemical toxic released from industries contaminates rivers & lakes resulting in the damage of marine resource as well as the human living there
