Here we are again my friend.....but this time to talk about the effect of water pollution,which become serious problem these days.
I think you met my friend Droppie and he told you about types of water pollution, and the effect of each type.........
First I will tell you simple things about the effect of chemical pollution of the water, I think that you knew that this type of pollution result from the chemical substances that are poured to the water that result in toxicity and poisoning, and this depends on the type of pollutants that are poured to the water weather they are lead, metals, or any other things. Some of these substances may accumulate in the body damaging any organ slowly with time or affecting the function of any system in the body.
These chemical things are transferred to man either by drinking unfiltered water or by swimming in polluted water , that is why my friend I want you to be careful in the water you drink or you swim in.......!!!
Of course I can not tell you about every chemical substance that may affect but I think it is enough to know that they are dangerous to all body organs and systems and its effects appears after time .
Any way I will tell you know about the most serious which are the diseases that are transmitted through polluted and they are called water -borne infections, I will tell you about some of them for example :viral hepatitis A, cholera, Balharzia, and typhoid, and sure many other diseases but these are the most common and important.
Let's begin with viral hepatitis A that is caused by virus A, and it spreads mainly through contaminated food and water and not only that but also throug direct contact to blood of infected persons.This virus affect the liver and blood stream and it has its characterstic symptoms which are fever, jaundice, nausea, headache, pain over liver, and redding and itching of hands and feet.
And this should be treated by bed rest, and fat free diet which is rich carbohydrates and proteins ofcourse beside the medicine.....These are information about hepatitis A and it should be treated so well otherwise it will affect the liver -which is of the most important organs in the body-badly.
Now,it is time to tell you about typhoid this is caused by bacteria called Bacteria Salminella typhi,hard name name isn't it??!! any way it is scientific....let's care with the important thing which is how this disease is transmitted !!It is transmitted through water, food,feces of infected persons and carriers, and also by contaminated articles, this bacteria affect the large intestine and blood stream.It has really so hard
symptoms which are continued high fever ,abdominal pain and cramping, diahrrea, blood in stools, and rose spots on abdomen.
The proper treatment is complete rest and antibiotics ,and also this disease must be treated well otherwise it will affect other body organs it may even affect the brain and cause serious effects.
The other disease that may be caused by polluted water is dysentery that spread by swallowing food and water contaminated by feces of infected cases and carriers, and it mainly affects the intestinal tract.Its symptoms are abdominal pain, severe diarrhea and blood and mucus in stools. And this should be treated by antibiotics and fluid replacement.
Finally I will tell you short note about Balharzia, but at first I want you to know that this is not transmitted by swallowing the polluted water but through swimming or washing in this water and by this way the bacteria that cause this disease enter to the human body and continue her life cycle to produce more and more generation of it that live in the blood stream, liver, and intestine and this sure affect the organs of the body and cause severe abdominal pains, but what you should know is the effect of this disease that may not appear at once is that it may cause diseases for the liver if it is not treated properly and taking care not to be infected by it again.
Of-course these are not the only diseases that result from water pollution and these are not the only dangers of these diseases ofcourse these are simple information about these things so to know the dangers .....and take care .
Hmmmmm...my friend I think that it is the time now to stop talking about the effects of water pollution as we should know other thing...what about noise pollution!! let's go together and know about it......
