Waterborne diseases are conditions caused by pathogenic microorganisms that are transmitted in water.
Water pollution occurs when unwanted materials such as industrial waste, sewage or garbage get mixed with drinking water, which changes the quality of water and makes it harmful to the environment and also to human health for consumption. Disease can be spread while bathing, washing, drinking water, or by eating food exposed to contaminated water. Polluted water can contain
a) Protozoa that can cause infections like Amoebiasis, Giardiasis, toxoplasmosis, etc,
b) Viruses that can cause infections like Hepatitis A or E, or
c) Bacteria like E.coli that can cause diarrhoea, cholera or typhoid
Where are waterborne diseases found?
Waterborne diseases are found in drinking water or in food exposed to contaminated water.
According to World Health Organization (WHO), 80% of diseases are waterborne. Drinking water in various countries does not meet WHO standards. 3.1% of deaths occur due to the unhygienic and poor quality of water. In India, over one lakh people die of water-borne diseases annually. It is reported that groundwater in one-third of India’s 600 districts is not fit for drinking as the concentration of fluoride, iron, salinity and arsenic exceeds the tolerance levels.
