If there are not enough people to help, then the people in developing countries cannot receive their proper nutrition. Since the programs are also usually run on donations, when there is a decrease in donations, then the program cannot buy food, transportation, or research for the quality of the country and which foods to give to them. In a bigger picture, malnutrition in third world countries is a huge problem and by placing more nutrition programs, we can help save the lives of an abundant amount of
According to a report by The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), “only around 26 percent of the DRC 's population of 67.8 million – equivalent to 17.6 million people – have access to safe drinking water, well below the approximately 60 percent average for Sub-Saharan Africa” (2011). Arguably, this is because the Congolese government lacks sufficient funds to lay pipes and improve its water pumping system. Congo is experiencing rapid population growth in its urban centers thereby making it hard to provide water for the extra number of people. Furthermore, most of the water facilities in Congo are non-functional due to the high cost of running them. The price of water is also quite high in the country.
Many of the world’s problem stem from a lack of clean and sustainable drinking water for all. Though it may seem like a small fraction of 65 million, over 840,000 die because of a lack of clean drinking water. Before trying to fix this pressing issue, we must first understand the problem, answer the question as to why it is a problem, and then create solutions that will actually work. “Around the world about 750 million people lack access to clean water, that is about 2 and a half times the United States
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.
Every year thousands and thousands of people, especially children, fall prey to water-borne diseases, and nearly half of them die. Water pollution is a serious issue as not only is water the most precious natural resource, but all sources of water support life that is very necessary for the survival of the planet. Water pollution destroys life and ecology and such damage is irreparable. Those who are still not serious about water pollution must also remember that the pollutants present in water not only destroy the life in the rivers and oceans, but also affect our food chain. Many people have the wrong notion that since they are not disposing the pollutants in the water they are not to blame.
Researchers: Kyle Antonio Latayan & Margaret Manuel General Topic: Nutrition Narrowed Topic: Effects of malnutrition on children ages 6-10 in NCR in 2013 Thesis Statement: There are several effects of malnutrition among children living in the poverty line because they do not receive adequate education. Literature Review Nutrition is one of the essential processes directly influencing the overall health and growth of an individual. This requires a person to be fully aware on the types and quantity of food he or she needs to intake on a regular basis. However, the nutrition education of most people are adversely affected, as poverty continues to be one of the central problems encompassing the whole world, especially the third world countries.
Although it is argued from a consumer’s point of view that water fluoridation is dangerous and hazardous to those who practice and use it, if it truly were hazardous, there would be a massive outbreak with everyone and it also would not have been approved from the Public Health Service since not only does it just affect one person, but a whole group of people since these are community water sources. This shows that all of the people within an area that has fluoridated water would suffer various negative consequences because of the chemicals in fluoride; however, because it is in an approved small amounts of fluoride, it does not negatively impact the health of the people tremendously, but in a positive way since tooth decay is decreased while consuming a liquid that contains the nutrients of fluoride. “The naturally occurring levels of fluoride in fruits, vegetables, meat, grain, eggs, milk, and fresh water supplies are generally very low (less than 0.1 ppm” (Fan’s Grocery Store Guide).
Therefore not all countries in this world will be able to afford or product desalination plants. Another disadvantage are the environmental impacts the desalination plants make. Removing the salt removed from the water is a big issue. The discharge which is also known as brine, lowers the amount of oxygen in the water at the disposal site, which leads to the killing of animals that are not used to the higher levels of salt. In addition, the desalination process uses numerous chemicals including chlorine, carbon dioxide,
Just 32 percent of the Iraqi population has access to clean drinking water, and only 19 percent has access to a good sewage system (Unknown, 2015, p.1). People clean clothes, take baths, and drink from this water. The diseases spread quickly and cases of chronic diarrhea are becoming extremely common. Doctors are sure that the only way to solve this diseases is to provide potable water, but families can't afford a bottle of fresh clean water. Water shortage is slowly destroying the middle east by making diseases run wild, making it easier for extremist
This means that 1.4 billion people or 21% of the world 's population live in extreme poverty. Unfortunately, women and children account for a sizeable portion of those who live in poverty. It is my opinion and belief that education can break barriers in order to escape or come out of poverty, but on the other hand poverty has been seen to cause problems in education as it can also limit student’s true potential. Children coming from a poor background usually look and dress differently from others from an upper class
Each year, 48 million food and water borne illnesses will sicken the United States inhabitants, and an additional 3,000 people will die from those illnesses. Food and water safety is crucial to the public because it directly affects people’s health, and without good hygiene diseases will spread quickly. It is also important to point out that many people live in conditions where they do not have access to resources necessary for human survival, and these are the ones that need the most assistance. For many, it is due to the carelessness of food and water distributors and lack of government intervention. For example, the Flint Michigan Water Crisis, a completely preventable occurrence.
The SWP diverts water from the Feather River to the Central Valley, South Bay Area and Southern California. The SWP includes 34 storage facilities, reservoirs and lakes, 20 pumping plants, 4 pumping generating plants, 5 hydroelectric power plants, and over 700 miles of canals and pipelines. It is the largest water system in the world and it manages over 5.8 million acre feet of water per year. The water is pumped 2,000 feet over the Tehachapi Mountains to reach Southern California, making it the highest water lift in the world (California Department of Water
