Without clean water, we cannot be able to be alive for long time. For instance, Michigan has contaminated drinking water and this causes a big impact on people’s health especially for their children such as blood poisoning, rashes and hair loss. Many people do not have access to clean water in many countries because our activities destroy these sources of water. Many of our resources are affected by pollution, and people are looking for other resources in the nature, so that
Billions are saved yearly when people drink tap water instead of bottled water. There is less plastic being dumped into the landfills. Millions are saved on oil cost when water is being drunk from the faucet instead of the bottle. There is less carbon dioxide in the air when you drink tap water. Tap water is safer for our air and environment.
Global Water Crisis GLOBAL WATER CRISIS is one of the biggest issues the world is facing. The world is running short of clean drinkable water. 1.2 billion people lack access to clean water and instead consume dirty, muddy water. Water shortage and unhygienic water has become a serious issue and a global concern, many people are dying as to this reason and the water is the root cause of many diseases and illness such as cholera, diarrhea, dysentery, hepatitis A and a type of typhoid around the world. Almost 3½ million people die every year due to this problem.
I'm also senior here at the University of Pennsylvania in mechanical engineering. - [Adrian] There are 800 million people in this worldthat lack access to clean water. - [Matt] And over 3. 4 million of those people die each year from water-borne related illnesses. So the need for an innovation in water technology is more prevalent than ever before.
If one mediates the world around, he/she should have observed that all creatures on earth need water to survive. Furthermore, the shortage of water in the body of any living creature happen to cause health problems and even death. The idea of preserving water is a debatable subject. However, humans should stop wasting water and should not take it for granted in order to survive with a healthy body, and reduce health risks. The most important reason why people should conserve clean water is to survive.
780 million people do not have access to clean water on the planet. Yet, most of the world’s population lives on the coast, with access to the oceans. So, why are there so many people looking for water, when they can just drink from the oceans? The truth is, drinking ocean water is very dangerous, and if one ingests enough of it, it can even be deadly. Ocean water does not kill someone because it has a different pH, or that there are different microbes in the ocean than pond water, it is because of an abundant mineral that one’s body uses quite regularly: Salt.
There are also some immediate dangers associated with drinking water for children or adults. For instance, there have been outbreaks of chlorine-resistant parasites like cryptosporidium and Giardia in city water supplies. One of the largest was in Milwaukee where over 100 people died and 400,000 became sick in less than a month. These parasites can be fatal to small children. "There's no telling precisely how many Americans get sick each year from drinking bad water...I would say that the cases we learn about are the tip of the iceberg."
Jared Snow Ms. Carrell English 1 AP 9/15/15 Water Contamination Water pollution is any chemical, physical, or biological change in the quality of water that has a harmful effect on any living thing that drinks it, uses it or lives in it. I have spent many hours of many days to research this topic to find out facts of water pollution and how to prevent it. According to Food and Water Watch there are over 780 million people all over the earth that are living without clean drinking water. Another fact is every 20 seconds a child under five years old dies from illnesses that are waterborne. There is a lot of information about water contamination, the main topics are, effects of the percentage of water contaminated, ways it gets contaminated, and what to do in the after-math.
Millions of people have faced with living-and-death issue due to constant use of contaminated water. Polluted water source causes the deleterious impact on the community. The common consequence is the rising rate of people at higher risk of acute and chronic diseases relating to water pollution such as dermatitis, digestive diseases, diarrhea, and cancer has risen. In several regions, patients diagnosed with cancer, gynecologic infections account for 40-50% of cases, due to polluted water sources. Polluted water and poor sanitation claim the lives of about 9,000 people per year in Vietnam, according to the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
The distribution of fresh water has always been a problem, and now as the world faces a growth by up to 1 billion by 2030, the issue is strained to continue to supply not only safe drinking and bathing water, but also enough to support farming and industrial practices. By finding new innovations to advocate to this problem, the world may be able to be able to sustain the population a little longer.
