Water pollution is a consequence of human action. Polluted water is not only unsafe to drink but also unsafe to surf, swim and fish in. Discover the most common types of water pollution that affect our daily lives.

Polluted water is "dead water." It has no life in it, and it can kill everything in it - plants, microorganisms, animals, humans, and even bacteria. High concentrations of pollutants have tragic effects on all living things.

The impact of contaminated waters in humans is huge. Water pollution is responsible for a wide range of diseases, including hepatitis, cholera, skin rashes, stomach complications, respiratory problems, liver illness, neurological issues, reproductive disorders, and even cancer.
