Water and Your Health: How Contaminated Water Can Affect You

Drinking water on a regular basis is really good for your body. That is, unless you are drinking water from a well or a plumbing system that has been contaminated.

Clean Drinking WaterIf you are subjecting your body to contaminated water, Livestrong points outthat you could be putting microbial pathogens like salmonella, organic compounds like pesticides, inorganic compounds like lead, and even radioactive elements like radon into your system. These contaminants can cause short- and long-term health effects and wreak havoc inside of your body.

Sometimes you have no idea that your water is contaminated until side effects develop a short time after drinking it. If you drink in microbes, for example, they will almost always make you ill immediately with symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting right after ingesting them. Other contaminants, however, can slowly build up in your body over time and cause huge problems down the road. The consumption of contaminated water has been linked thyroid diseases, cancer and more, which is why it’s very important for you to steer clear of drinking it at all costs.
