Water is life, and clean water means Health. ~ Audrey Hepburn
We all are aware of how important water is for mankind. Our life needs it at every step, from digesting food, proper metabolism, elimination of waste, to producing food and daily hygiene. Knowing the fact that purity is necessary while consuming water, most parts of the world still intake poor quality of it.
‘Water Impurity’, generally does not get perceived as a serious issue, especially in the rural areas. Shattering this notion, we at Tapp Me, today are going to make you aware of some serious health concerns caused by water impurity. When we say diseases, the list does not end with diarrhea and lead poisoning. It entails some chronic diseases too. Let’s have a look:
Cholera is a diarrhea disorder prompted via the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. It is transmitted by liquids or food that has been contaminated with the aid of human waste. Water from shallow wells are customary sources of illness, where bathing or washing cooking utensils in the contaminated source might also transmit cholera.
Common symptoms of cholera include diarrhea and vomiting, stomach cramps and headache.
In closely populated places with poor sanitation and constrained water assets, a single infected individual can contaminate the water and influence the complete populace.
Another water-borne disease, Dysentery causes fever, abdominal pain, server diarrhea with blood and mucus. The bacteria enter the mouth through consumption of contaminated water or food.
You can tell dysentery apart you feel mild illness, stomach ache and diarrhea

Trachoma (Eye Infection)
