Without water, people and animals could not survive. Water is a precious source and must be protected as well as respected. By limiting water usage now, it will help future generations to enjoy what people have today. While there are some people who think water will never run out, others believe in conservation, just in case those other people are wrong. Fishman, in his book, “The Big Thirst,” is spot on that citizens should understand the current water situation.
Not only will it help stop accidents and work related ill health among your staff, but it will reduce your accident losses, improve your profit and loss statement and help you become more efficient. If food retailers don’t meet their health and safety regulations, inspections will be followed out and if they find anything that will cause accidents or harm they would be fined and prosecuted for not following their health and safety. Food Hygiene Good food hygiene is essential for you to make or sell food that is safe to eat. It is very important for you and your staff to understand what good food hygiene is. Good food hygiene helps you to: ● Obey the law ● Reduce the risk of food poisoning among your customers ● Protect your business 's reputation This act is really important for food retailers to meet their health and safety because it will reduce the risks for their customers on food poisoning.
Because these animals are held is such close quarters, many diseases spread quickly among them, ending up in the food that we eat. Since the animals carry diseases and we are eating it, human health has potentially decreased due to the increase of disease being spread. Additionally, factory farms are having negative impacts on our environment. “Hog, chicken, and cattle waste has polluted 35,000 miles of rivers in 22 states and contaminated groundwater in 17 states” (Organic Consumers Association). It is shown how these factory farms are contaminated the land around us due to the waste produced by these animals and the unsanitary dispose of such
Promoting good animal welfare as part of food quality Animal welfare is very important also for us humans, for our own health, nutrition and security when eating animals. Many times you can diagnose animal welfare when studying their behavior, physiology productivity and reproductive success. Sometimes productivity is a way to know the animal’s health. Even if we don’t do something to help them reproduce in a healthy way, they are going to keep doing it, and at the end the affected ones are going to be humans because they are the animals that we usually eat. In the past, when everything we ate was as natural as possible, not being affected by unknown chemicals, strange diseases weren’t as common as they are now.
The wells the colonists made were risky because of the high chance of salt water intrusion. Also, you have to remember the human waste festering in the water, and even when the tides rush in it doesn’t move the waste out. Therefore, there could be diseases in the water, which could kill the colonists. Remember that the people in the 1600s could not filter water like we can so the colonists (because of the lack of freshwater) had to drink the contaminated water, which could lead to death. This is why I believe that one of the major factors of the colonists deaths is the environment.
From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting. Our natural resources are at risk every time fracking occurs. Fracking needs to be banned since it is hurting our health and that it drains our natural and limited resources required for us to sustain life. Water is an essential to living and it is a need. Without it we would be dead from the dehydration.
Dennis B. Blanton describes how causing more and more freshwater is becoming brackish causing fresh water to become scarce. To be able to get drinking water, the colonists dug wells across the land. However, the wells became vulnerable to drought and salt water intrusion. He also talks about how the transition affects the water. Due to the saltwater transition, and the filth within the water, the water was the reason for many diseases.
Factory Farm Map states, “Factory farms produce millions of gallons of manure that can spill into waterways from leaking storage lagoons or fields where manure is over-applied to soil. Manure generates hazardous air pollutants and contains contaminants that can endanger human health. Neighbors of factory farms, as well as the workers in them, often suffer intensely from overwhelming odors and related headaches, nausea and other long-term health effects.” This reveals that farmers should not have lagoons because lagoons are bad for residents that live around the lagoons. Factory farms are can be good for any animal that they farm. I understand your point but, however, some factory farms do the right thing and do not hurt the animals but a lot of farms do hurt the animals.
• Clean water, sewage disposal and food distribution facilities may be disrupted by flooding, ash fallout and lava flows which block transport routes. • Increased levels of occupancy due to shortage of housing may lead to sewage disposal systems (ie. septic tanks) to malfunction due to accumulations of large amounts of waste. • Exposed water supplies (ie. springs and wells) may be contaminated with ash, deeming them unsafe for consumption.
