Nile river water in Egypt is the focus of attention of many studies due to many reasons. The first reason is because it is water used by over 13 million inhabitants in Cairo, as well as, other cities. The second reason is that, the Nile is the longest river in the world, flowing northward from its source in Tanzania to its outlet in the Mediterranean Sea, a distance of 6695 km. The Nile water source is tainted by pesticides, sewage, nutrients, and heavy metals. One of the most important causes of Nile contamination is discharging of industrial facilities (Mohamed et al., 1998).
With these degrees of exclusion, we 're all losers. Social cohesion is weakened, and conflict situations are created, generating violence and sick societies. More than nine million children die each year before their fifth birthday. Between 33% and 50% due to malnutrition. The cause of death is usually diarrhea, but behind it is acute deficits of necessary micronutrients.
4). This is about 5.5 million out of the 7 million people who died in 2012 due to air pollution, which means over half of the people dying are South East Asia inhabitants. Through the 2.6 million deaths from outdoor pollution, about 40% of those deaths were from ischemic heart disease and another 40% from strokes. 11% from COPD and then 6% from lung cancer and 3% were from acute lower respiratory infections in children. (“7 million,” 2014, para.
Arguments against defending the Idea and Government of democracy include the Efficiency of the system, and effectiveness. Many people believe that it is not the United States responsibility to defend system of democracy because our system is not perfect and new democracies often fail. But let us consider that our democracy has been around for 239 years and was in danger of collapsing for the longest time. If not America then who? , the Middle East would contain a Plethora of dictators and constant war if not for our interference.
INTRODUCTION Lack of clean water is affecting millions of people today.Almost 1 out of every 6 people alive are unable to adequately access water, and worse still, over double that number lack basic sanitation, for which water is a necessity. (Abebe, 2011)Almost half the population in some third world countries can’t access clean water and availability of drinking water is becoming a major socio-economic issue across the world, particularly in the developing world. Clean water i.e. water that is free from toxins and various chemicals is essential to human health. Rapid increase in population, industrialization, droughts and demands from variety of users are the major factors that led to clean drinking water shortage.
Clean water has been one of the most important challenges for many people in the world, especially in developing countries. Numerous people in poor countries don’t have access to clean water for drinking, which leads to a considerable risk of sickness. In reality, most of all diarrhea diseases are results of contaminated water1 with an estimated morbidity of 1 billion and a mortality of 2.2 million per year.2 This issue not only influences the health in communities, but also can prevent development through economic pressure caused by treatment of patients and decrease the number of people in the workforce.3 To overcome these challenges, providing cleaner water by treating contaminated water sources is the best option, and disinfection processes
Children at risk of dying every year due to zinc deficiency are about 450,000. Mild-to-moderate zinc deficiency may be relatively common worldwide, but the public health importance of this degree of zinc deficiency is not well defined. Zinc deficiency leaves the body incapable of fighting pneumonia and diarrhea. Child hood diarrhea especially is a key public health issue in many developing countries. Diarrhea claims the lives of approximately1.5 million children under the age of five every year– nearly one in five child deaths.
A study of absenteeism in Brazil estimated loses caused by this disease of at least $5.6 million per year. In addition, the medical costs for treatment of infected individuals add up to this cost by several times this amount. Untreated, the disease results in disability affecting the households as the infected individuals become a financial burden reducing the quality of life of the whole family.
This means that the seventeen year old lost ten years’ worth of education because of the natural disaster. Not only that, but it also made “One-in-five school-age children were either not enrolled in school or were only partially attending (missing more than 10 days a month),” (The Devastating Effect Hurricane Katrina Had on Education). It shows that numerous amount of children lost a chunk of their education during the aftermath of the
In 2010, an estimated 7.6 million children over 20,000 per day died of starvation. 6. Hunger problem exists mostly in underdeveloped countries. Hunger could be transmitted from mother to child. Every year, million of children are born underweight because their mothers are also
The increase of population cannot keep up with the amount of water distributed. Some causes of water poverty are deaths from diseases caused by dirty water which are preventable. Although, lack of access to clean water continues to complicate life for people in poverty. At least 1.8 billion people use a drinking-water source contaminated with fesses. Water is a basic human right.
A recent study by Duke University helped to show the negative affect that drinking water wells near hydrofracking sites have 17 times more methane than wells not located near fracking. Fracking operations have generated billions of gallons of radiation-laced toxic wastewater that people can 't manage properly” (The Serious Risks of Fracking Outweigh Its Benefits). This forces families to abandon their homes because of dangerous levels of arsenic, benzene and toluene in their blood. Hydraulic fracturing has caused earthquakes in Ohio and Oklahoma, ozone in Wyoming that out-smogs L.A., and a 200% increase in childhood asthma in parts of Texas (Polson). A top federal scientist admits that people just don 't know enough about all the different ways fracking can make humans sick.
Water is a resource that is necessary for human survival. It is something that all of us come into contact with on a day to day basis and we never really think of where it comes from or its consequences. Many people believe that water should be able to be freely used because of this necessity, however there are those who view water as a vehicle for profit due to its high demand. Pollution, increased population growth, and scarcity have caused the value of water to skyrocket and almost surpass the need and demand for oil. Majority of the freshwater on earth is not accessible by man, causing the small amount that we can access to be fought over by global corporations and local governments.
Education on the issue is important since “Approximately 17 million African children die from hunger and malnutrition every year” (“Health Issues,” par. 4). Africa has been drastically affected by malnutrition, as shown through this representation of death rates. The effects of this disease “ deprives young African children of critical vitamins to their health. More than half a million children suffer from vitamin A deficiency, which cripples young immune systems.
“nearly a billion people around the world are exposed to waterborne pathogen pollution daily and around 1.5 million children mainly in underdeveloped countries die every year of waterborne diseases from pathogens. Pathogens enter water primarily from human and animal fecal waste due to inadequate sewage treatment.” (Dorsner, 2017) That in mind, the possibility of decrease
