5 dangers in a human body for drinking contaminated water

by Priti Das Marketing Executive

A constant supply of pure drinking water is very much required for every household. Still, millions of people cannot obtain this all-important resource. As a consequence, some people have to use and drink water that contains dangerous pollutants. And, that is the very reason why more than 3.4 million people all over the world die from waterborne diseases every year. In this article, Penguin Tank, the highly-rated Water tank manufacturer in West Bengal will cover 5 dangerous diseases caused by drinking dirty or polluted water. So, let’s get started.


Salmonellosis happens if a person drinks water that has been contaminated by feces. When domestic pets or wild animals leave their feces on or near water surfaces such as rivers, lakes, ponds, streams, etc., the salmonella virus then sets the feet into the private wells, water tanks, or any other water supplies of a house. The pernicious waste can then amalgamate with the water from various media like a polluted storm or rainwater runoff, agricultural runoff, and others. And thus, the disease comes via undercooked meat, egg products, fruits, vegetables, and other sorts of contaminated water and food. 

Vomiting, fever, diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, dehydration, etc., are some common symptoms of salmonellosis.



Another deadly disease caused by drinking dirty water is Typhoid. The bacteria that is responsible for this fatal disease is named Salmonella Typhi. This disease mainly occurs for drinking contaminated water and also for eating some foods that are washed or prepared with dirty and polluted water. The main symptom of typhoid is persistent high fever. Besides, weakness, headache, stomach pain, etc., are also some symptoms of getting infected by Salmonella Typhi.


Diarrhea is one of the commonly known waterborne diseases people suffer from. In the cases of Diarrhea, water that is polluted by pathogens from animal or human waste is mostly responsible. Besides, different waterborne viruses, bacteria, and protozoans are blameworthy for Diarrhoea. Mainly, people experience watery stools that too multiple times when Diarrhoea takes place in a human body. 

4.Hepatitis A- 

Consuming water that somehow contains the Hepatitis A virus causes this waterborne disease. In Hepatitis A, the liver gets damaged initially. People living in areas that have poor sanitation and bad hygiene management are more at the stake of being exposed to the Hepatitis A virus via water. Abdominal pain, depression, nausea, fatigue, weight loss, jaundice, fever, loss of appetite, etc., are some common symptoms of Hepatitis A. 


Another disease caused by contaminated water. The bacteria that are considered to be responsible for the disease is Vibrio Cholerae. People who suffer from cholera experience nausea, vomiting, dehydration, abdominal cramps, etc.  

Looking deeply at the above-mentioned waterborne diseases, the importance of drinking pure and freshwater can be assumed pretty well. Hence, a permanent source of pure drinking water is much exigent for well-being. This is why people are more likely to install a good quality plastic water storage tank as the primary source of drinking water for domestic and commercial purposes.
