Diseases caused by lack of water
Some of the people who can’t get enough clean water are now doing anything to have water. They even sometimes take the dirty water which can be a great spreading media of skin disease and human digestion system disease.
Typhoid fever is caused by Salmonella typhii which increases as the increasing amount of flies and the lack of clean water.
Water which is polluted by human fesses can be a great spreading media for dysentery, cholera, hepatitis, and other illness.
Skin problems are also found as the decreasing amount of water.
We see from the facts above that water is really an important matter to deal with. Therefore, it’s very needed to supply clean water for the whole earth.
