Can you open the tap at home to pour yourself a refreshing glass of water anytime you need to? Count yourself lucky! While the UN declared clean drinking water to be a human right in 2010, around 2.1 billion people (29% of the world’s population) across the globe still don’t have access to safe drinking water.
But how safe is tap water? What health risks await us upon drinking unfiltered water?
Here Are a Few Things You Need to Know About Water & Hygiene:
Pathogens In The Water
Pathogens can be described as anything producing disease. Diseases such as cholera, typhoid, diarrhoea, hepatitis A and giardia are all diseases caused by drinking water. Water can carry various forms of bacteria, viruses and parasites and therefore water sanitation and hygiene is critical. But even washing infrastructure, meaning places where people can properly clean themselves, is not getting enough investment. Over 50% of countries confirm that household tariffs are not enough to recover operation and maintenance costs, ultimately resulting in service failure.
Every infection weakens the immune system; the more daily fights the body has to cope with, the less prepared it will be for the real dangers to come. And that’s why contaminated water poses an immediate danger.
Safe Disinfection with UV
UV has the ability to disrupt the DNA of bacteria. Once UV gets hold of bacteria; there is no longer any functioning genetic code, no reproduction and therefore no danger.
