Unsafe drinking water cause disability among children worldwide

Karachi: Toxically germ-infested unsafe drinking water cause different form of disability among children globally which are caused by teratogens.

The excessive use of medication and consuming polluted water results in the development of abnormal cell tissue in unborn as well as newly born babies particularly during foetal growth, yielding a multiplex of physicochemical defects in the foetus. Improper and untreated disposal of sanitary water and untreated industrial waste is resulting in contamination of sub soil water threatening the nature.

These are the finding of Principal Investigators of SAARC Sector’s Academic Alliance for Subsoil Water Toxicity Research Initiative Prof Qadhi Aurangzeb Al Hafi and Pro-Vice Chancellor of Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) Prof M Umar Farooq

This is the first time Pakistani researcher’s study has been recognized at UN level and Pakistan takes the historic edge of launching the first ever model of Terato-kinetc Research in the recorded history of medical sciences. The ground-breaking research document has been primed for over 1700 international esteemed universities of the globe, in accordance with the United Nations mandates and conventions on the subject.

The first categorical research model was demonstrated at Higher Education Commission (HEC) Pakistan in continuum of the multi academia polygonal scientific colloquia the United Nations ‘International Observance Day for Disability’, at Dow University of Health Sciences, Karachi, followed by its academic sessions and scientific symposia at Punjab University and Higher Education Commission of Pakistan. The multi-academic colloquia consist of 9 scientific orientations, 17 confluences, 10 symposia and 19 demonstrations worldwide.

The findings in the report revealed that the places where people do not have adequate access to water largely coincide with those where toxicity-centered diseases endemics in general, and embryonic-teratogenesis pandemic out-breaks in particular, are threateningly high. The sewage outlets of the urban areas necessarily do impose a disproportionate and unfair burden on the lands where mostly the poor populations are inhabited.

As a result, the soil along with subsoil water reservoirs, essentially become inept to shield against the burdens of both, the inorganic and organic wastes’ toxicities imposed thereupon, due to being incapable of bearing and processing this ‘disproportionate and unfair toxic burden’. Worldwide the figures are so high at present, and if the current trends continue to go on, more than double of the present figure would be left disadvantaged from safe drinking water, warn the subsoil hydro-toxification indicators. These devastating remnants of epic proportions, strongly stretch an inevitable call for a transition from the fragmented approach and its practice.

The report also identified teratogenic effect of underground water’s contaminations responsible for complex embryonic hydro-toxicity resulting in multiple disabilities at pre-birth stages as well as in the newly born.

According to the UNESCO report, “Water-Life” Decade Indicators’ by SAIRI, in connection to the ‘World Health Observances 2014’, some 768 million people do not have access to an improved source of water, and 2.5 billion do not have access to appropriate sanitation.
