Toxic Drinking Water - Wake up call

High chances that what we are drinking is toxic water with high nitrate and arsenic. Most urban local bodies are failing to do their basic job. We really must deliberate what should be done before cancer epidemics hit us as a country.

This is the information given by Drinking Water Minister to Parliament yesterday. If this doesnt get us to question our munciipality and jal boards, nothing will

In India, the groundwater is contaminated with the presence of excess nitrate in as many as 386 districts followed by fluoride in 335 districts, iron in 301 districts, salinity in 212, arsenic in 153 districts, lead in 93 districts, chromium in 30 districts and cadmium in 24 districts of different states across India. Many districts have more than one, two or three toxic elements in their groundwater.

Discharge of toxic elements from industries and landfills and diffused sources of pollution like fertilisers and pesticides over the years has resulted in high levels of contamination of groundwater with the level of nitrates exceeding permissible limits in more than 50% districts of India.

Apart from nitrate contamination, the presence of fluoride, iron, arsenic and heavy metals has also touched worrying levels, information provided by the government to Parliament reveals.

According to WHO, nitrate in drinking water can cause
methaemoglobinaemia or the decreased ability of blood to carry vital oxygen around the body.

Drinking of arsenic-rich water over a long period results in various health effects including skin cancer, cancers of the bladder, kidney and lung, and diseases of the blood vessels of the legs and feet, and possibly also diabetes, high blood pressure and reproductive disorders, according to WHO. more

Over population has made a mess of every thing.We should believe in quality and not in quantity. more  
Very true, local bodies are doing nothing to check the quality of ground water. Water is continuously being contaminated by polluted items from Industrial & household waste. The corrupt officials are working hand-in-hand with corrupt political representatives. Until we elect an honest, educated & hard working person for social causes (Councilor, Pradhan, Sarpanch, MLA & MP), irrespective of caste, creed & religion; not much can be achieved.
Hence, time to wake up please. more
