Dangers of Polluted Water

According to a United Nations report, more people now die from contaminated and polluted water than from all forms of violence including wars. The UN reports that two million tons of waste- agricultural and industrial, as well as sewage and so on- are discharged every day into rivers and seas, spreading illness and damaging ecosystems. Moreover, every 20 seconds, a child under the age of five dies from water-related disease. Says Achim Steiner, executive director of the UN Environment Programmed: " If the world is to thrive.... we need to get collectively smarter and more intelligent about how we manage waste".
