Drinking water for health
As per the WHO estimation, many worldwide annual deaths affect children, mostly due to water-borne diseases. Those cases are mostly attributable to a contaminated and untreated drinking-water source. These diseases are caused by pathogens, including bacteria, protozoa, worms, viruses, and even fungi in individuals with weakened immune systems.
As per CDC guidelines, water-borne diseases can be controlled and prevented by supplying safe drinking water along with adequate sanitation and good hygiene practices.
In addition to that, a secondary contaminant is defined as aesthetic but doesn’t directly affect health, and that is called SMCL.
