You want to know about the effects of poor sanitation on the environment ? That way the armpit smells when you dodge taking your birth, that’s the effect of poor body hygiene or poor body management so relate it same way to the environment.
When we fail to sanitize the environment properly, it fires back and we suffer the consequences.
How does sanitation affect the environment ? Inadequate sanitation, particularly in the context of urbanization, allows for sewage or waste to flow directly into streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands, affecting coastal and marine ecosystems, fouling the environment and exposing millions of children to disease, including you.
You are not save by pumping water from a borehole to drink, that water too can get contaminated when we neglect the environment so never act like you don’t care!
The absence of adequate sanitation has a serious impact on health and social development, especially for children. This contamination is a major cause of diarrhoea, the second biggest killer of children in developing countries, and leads to other major diseases such as cholera, schistosomiasis, and trachoma.
Does it scare you to here that? Uh, I see. Let it scare you too to pollute the environment, let the change begin with you, start from your little end and watch it spread to the whole world.
Last time I talked about the effect of erosion on the environment and tagged it as natural disaster, it would be bad suffering natural disasters and man-made disasters too by polluting the environment. From your corner, have a rethink.
For those who still passes feces careless in bushes and pathways, you should know that Human excreta have been implicated in the transmission of many infectious diseases including cholera, typhoid, infectious hepatitis, polio, cryptosporidiosis, and ascariasis.
If you must defecate elsewhere rather than a toilet, then dig a hole for your partner and pass it into the hole! …and make sure you cover it properly.
Effects Of Poor Sanitation On The Environment are just uncountable, just any bad effect of poor environmental sanitation you can think of. Take a look at my own list below.
