With a heightened awareness of the danger of greenhouses gasses being released into the environment and causing an expanding hole in the ozone layer, we are all to aware that the future prospects for our planet won’t be too good unless we act now. What about the impact that bad waste management can have on public health in the here and now, though? Can poor refuse deposits lead to health problems?

Water is essential for life and in developed countries such as the UK, we fortunately have excellent water treatment facilities which make water-borne diseases very uncommon. However, many countries worldwide do not have the same kind of processes for filtering and improving the quality of water. Chemicals used in factories, on farms and other industries can pollute groundwater making it toxic for human consumption and the improper disposal of animal waste can have the same effect. Water-borne diseases such as Typhoid, Cholera, Paratyphoid Fever, Dysentery, Jaundice, Amoebiasis and Malaria can all be limited by good water treatment systems, but yet they still exist and people are dying so if the water cannot be treated, people will continue to die.
