Top 7 Most Deadly Things Found in Drinking Water
1. E. coli – This strand of bacteria is mostly found in private water sources like wells. The alarming thing though, is that E. coli is generally found where there are traces of feces from human or animal.
2. Campylobacter – Another strand of bacteria that is associated with waste from either human or animal excrement, campylobacter is the leading cause of bacterial diarrheal illness and is found almost everywhere. It is described as a very infectious disease that only requires to less than 500 cells before you feel the effects.
3. Hepatitis A – Wells, if properly installed and maintained, provide a safe source of water in the U.S. When any water source, including private wells, is contaminated with feces from infected humans, the water can potentially spread the Hepatitis A virus. Hepatitis A is a contagious liver disease that results from infection with the Hepatitis A virus. It can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks, to a severe illness lasting several months. Hepatitis A is usually spread when a person ingests fecal matter – even in microscopic amounts – from contact with objects, food, or drinks contaminated by the feces, or stool, of an infected person.
4. Giardia Lamblia – A protozoan parasites which occur in a trophozoite and an oval-shaped cyst form. Cysts excreted in the feces of an infected host move passively through the environment. If cysts are ingested, infection may be transmitted to another vertebrate host.
5. Salmonella – Salmonella is a bacterium that can make you sick. It was first discovered by a scientist named Dr. Salmon and has been recognized as a cause for disease for over 125 years. The illness people get from salmonella is called salmonellosis. The typical course of the illness consists of symptoms appearing between 12 and 72 hours after infection. Most people infected by the bacteria develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps that usually last from 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment. However, in some cases diarrhea that can be so severe that they may need hospitalization.
6. Legionella Pneumophila – Most people become infected with Legionnaires’ disease when they inhale microscopic water droplets containing Legionella bacteria. If you choke or cough while drinking, you can get water in your lungs. If the water contains Legionella, you may develop Legionnaires’ disease, which is a form of pneumonia.
7. Cryptosporidium – Cryptosporidium is a protozoan parasite that exists as a round cyst about 4 to 6 microns in diameter.
