How to fix the water problem
Water can be a problem for most people, but it’s especially problematic for people with compromised immune systems.
This is because the body is built to be protected from the damaging effects of viruses, bacterial and protozoan infections, and many diseases.
It’s also built to survive the effects of dehydration.
The water we drink, on average, comes from the tap, which can be contaminated by fecal matter and other waste.
When it rains, the tap water can be polluted by algae, bacteria, and other contaminants.
So how do we fix the problem?
One way is to install filters in your tap.
But many people don’t even know they need filters, and a new report from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences shows that those people could face significant health consequences.
[The U.S. Water Supply and Drinking Water Quality Act, the Obama administration’s water rulemaking process] As a result, a new government-sponsored study shows that many people are unaware they need to use filters or that they’re susceptible to infection when they do.
The National Institute for Environmental Health Science (NIEHS) conducted an observational study of nearly 8,000 people aged 19 to 69 who participated in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).
Those people were tested for a range of health conditions.
The study found that people who had the highest levels of exposure to water pollution were more likely to have elevated levels of hepatitis B, which is known to cause liver cancer and cirrhosis of the liver.
People with higher levels of pollution were also more likely than those who had lower exposure to other health problems, such as diabetes and obesity.
The researchers noted that these findings suggest that some people who are already at risk for certain health problems may not realize that they have been exposed to a harmful contaminant.
What this study does not do is provide any scientific justification for people to avoid drinking tap water, or for them to use filtration systems that are designed to remove all of the water.
What it does do, however, is provide a reminder that people should not rely solely on their tap water for their health.
“People are already under a lot of stress in terms of water, and filters can help people manage that stress,” said Niehs researcher Shailesh Prakash, a professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of California, San Diego.
“In fact, filtering helps people reduce the risk of developing certain conditions.”
The researchers also found that those who have lower exposure rates to certain water contaminants, such inorganic salts, were less likely to develop certain conditions.
They also found an association between higher water contamination rates and a higher rate of colorectal cancer, and higher rates of heart disease and stroke.
For people who were not exposed to the contaminants, Prakak said, there was no clear relationship between water contamination and health risks.
“There is not a strong association between the level of contaminants in the water and the health outcomes,” he said.
“But there is a strong relationship between the number of contaminants that you are exposed to and the disease outcomes.”
But there is no evidence that these associations hold true for people who have been living in water-scarce communities for decades, or those who are living in areas that have been severely affected by climate change.
What the study does show, however: The effects of water pollution on people’s health are more severe in people who live in areas with severe pollution, and in people with weakened immune systems, Pramanik said.
Water contamination can have long-term health consequences, including damage to the immune system, liver, kidneys, and eyes, as well as damage to DNA.
But the researchers said this research is the first to show that people with a compromised immune system are at risk of significant long-lasting health consequences from water pollution exposure.
“It’s not just about the water,” Prakack said.
The results of this new study suggest that people in areas of the U.K. where there’s severe pollution and water pollution are at higher risk of long-standing health problems.
But it’s not clear whether the health risks associated with water pollution in those areas are related to people’s immune systems or their ability to cope with water quality problems.
The new research is published in the journal Environmental Research Letters.
