Risks from Water Water

Risks from Water Water as a vector for diseases We drink about 40,000 gallons of water in the course of our lives. And as we drink water day in, day out, we also consume many different substances in that water, some of which can cause serious diseases. Bacterial resistance, allergies Pharmaceutical residues can get into our drinking water because we pass the bulk of the medications we take through our urine. This passes into the sewer systems and eventually into rivers, lakes, or groundwater. Hormonal imbalances, infertility Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (natural and artificial oestrogen, industrial chemicals, pesticides) excreted in human and animal waste can get into the groundwater and disrupt our hormonal balance. Diarrhoea, vomiting, fever Fecal bacteria and parasites are found even in natural springs whether in the mountains or in the valleys as well as in city water lines. Severe pneumonia (Legionellosis) In those parts of water lines where water has a chance to stand, the Legionella bacteria can multiply freely. Hot water systems are especially optimal for their growth. Organ and tissue changes Caused by pesticides that enter the groundwater. Infectious diseases, inflammation Infections can be caused by viruses in our drinking water. Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the cold water coming from groundwater supplies can cause inflammation. Fatigue, numbness, cancer Arsenic ingestion can result in acute effects like e.g. nausea, vomiting, neurological effects such as numbness or burning sensations in the hands and feet, cardiovascular effects and decreased production of red and white blood cells, which may result in fatigue. Chronic exposure to arsenic is also associated with an increased risk of skin, bladder, and lung cancer, as well as with kidney and prostate cancer. 6

Risks from Water Dug-up drinking-water pipe on a construction site in Boston, MA (USA). Health risks in drinking water Many hazards can emerge from the tap water we come into contact with throughout our daily lives. Especially considering the large amount of water that we consume during our lifetime, even the smallest amounts of some substances can have a significant effect on our bodies. Pathogens: bacteria, viruses, parasites Public water supplies regularly exceed limits for pathogenic substances in drinking water. Fecal germs, bacteria, viruses, parasites, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa: How do pathogens like these get into my water and what are the consequences? Residuals of pharmaceuticals Tens of thousands of tons of pharmaceuticals are dispensed in the USA each year. 95% of that volume is excreted in the patient’s urine and cannot be filtered out by wastewater treatment plants. So far, only a very minimal amount of pharmaceuticals has been detected in the groundwater, but they can help foster the development of antibiotic resistance among bacteria which is an even greater risk. Plasticisers Plasticisers are found in bottled water, as well as river and groundwater. So far, little sound scientific data has been collected. In animal experiments, they were shown to affect the liver, kidney, and testicles and also to cause reductions in body weight. Legionella Legionella is a tiny bacterium that occurs naturally in soil and surface water and passes into our water pipes through the cold water. Once heated in our home, Legionella multiply freely and cause severe cases of pneumonia when inhaled, for example, while showering. Endocrine disruptors Endocrine disruptors interfere with our hormone systems and environmental sources of these endocrine disruptors can endanger both human and animal health, especially with regard to fertility. Pesticides Pesticides are present in almost 30% of all water supplies in Germany, according to the Federal Environmental Office. The results show that pesticides such as atrazine which have long been banned are still found in groundwater. 7
