About 2.5 million years ago early transitional humans started to use stone tools to enhance their way of life. Thus taking survival and human evolution to the next level. With every species on the planet their main goal is to survive. Without the existence of clean water living and prospering would be unlikely. What tool would you turn if you had no clean drinking water?
Water is the upmost important thing you need to live. Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery 31%.Water also helps carry nutrients to our cells and helps rid toxins from our organs.
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) waterborne diseases are caused by pathogenic microbes that can be directly spread through contaminated water. Most waterborne diseases cause diarrheal illness. Eighty-eight percent of diarrhea cases worldwide are linked to unsafe water, inadequate sanitation or insufficient hygiene. These cases result in 1.5 million deaths each year, mostly in young children.
The usual cause of death is dehydration. Most cases of diarrheal illness and death occur in developing countries because of unsafe water, poor sanitation, and insufficient hygiene. Other waterborne diseases do not cause diarrhea instead these diseases can cause malnutrition, skin infections, and organ damage. For a more in depth look at waterborne illnesses please check out the CDC’s website linked above for more info.
These statistics are staggering. 1.5 million. This is the 20th century not the 1700’s. Here in the United States were fortunate for the most part to have clean drinking water. What if though for some reason we didn’t? Visual inspection cannot determine if water is safe to consume. Other procedures such as boiling or the use of a household filter are not good enough for treating all the possible contaminants that may be present in your water. So unless a news source were to inform you that your water was unsafe to consume you might not have any idea. To be on the safe side you would want to make sure at all costs that your water was safe to consume.
