    There is a growing concern about the occurance of pharmaceuticals in water bodies and in drinking water. Pharmaceuticals get into the water supply via human excretion and by drugs being flushed down the toilet. You might think wastewater treatment plants would take care of the situation, but pharmaceuticals pass through water treatment.   Public drinking water contamination and birthweight, prematurity, fetal deaths, and birth defects.

    Water Contamination And Its Effects On Poor Communities Words | 5 Pages. Water contamination is presence of unwanted contaminant in the water. Water contamination can lead to pollution which is the adverse effect of excess of water contamination. As a result of water contamination, there can be health impacts, social and environmental impacts. case-control study in to evaluate the association of drinking water contaminants with birth weight and selected birth defects. The cross-sectional study base inclu live births and single fetal deaths between January and December .

    The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of (Proposit California Health and Safety Code et seq.) requires that the Governor cause to be published a list of those chemicals “known to the state” to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. The effects of their waterborne pollution however ranges from contamination of drinking water causing drinking water quality problems to emission of greenhouse gases, resulting in climatic change challenges. Some remediate climate change mitigation measures against water .

Project Summary Effects of Selected Organic Drinking Water Contaminants on Male Reproduction Joseph F. Borzelleca and Richard A. Carchman Because of the recent increase in exposure of individuals to.

Environmental toxicants may potentially induce effects in human reproductive processes, specifically, for male reproductive health. All the physical, chemical, biological, and social factors that may affect the origin, growth, development, and survival of a person in a given setting could be potential hazards to men's reproductive health.

INTRODUCTION. The possible effects of exposure to environmental contaminants on male reproductive function have been addressed in a number of epidemiological studies.1,2,3 Although these studies suggest some effects on male reproductive health, the results across studies are often conflicting.

There are considerable numbers of animal studies that indicate adverse effects of Cited by: The compounds evaluated in this chapter were selected for essentially the same reasons as those enumerated at the beginning of Chapter VI.

Chloroform is included because new information has become available since it was evaluated in the first volume of Drinking Water and Health (National Academy of Sciences, ). Dibromochloropropane appears for the first time in this report because of its.

Drinking water sources may contain a variety of contaminants that, at elevated levels, have been associated with increased risk of a range of diseases in children, including acute diseases such as gastrointestinal illness, developmental effects such as learning disorders, endocrine disruption.

When water is contaminated with chemicals such as pesticides, hydrocarbons, persistent organic pollutants, or heavy, it could lead to cancer, including prostate cancer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, hormonal problems that can disrupt reproductive and developmental processes, damage to the nervous system, liver and kidney damage, and damage to the DNA.

Drinking contaminated water sources and/or dirty water can cause numerous health concerns. Read more to increase your awareness. Water contamination can occur to city water supplies, well water supplies, and fresh water sources, such as lakes, streams, and rivers. Consuming contaminated water can cause numerous effects.

EPA sets legal limits on over 90 contaminants in drinking water. The legal limit for a contaminant reflects the level that protects human health and that water systems can achieve using the best available technology.

EPA rules also set water-testing schedules and methods that water systems must follow. Endocrine Disrupters in Drinking Water and Water Reuse.DOI: /ch7 Reproductive effects in male and female rats from neonatal exposure to p-octylphenol. Organic contaminants in the aquatic environment I.

Sources and occurrence.

Non-occupational human exposure to pesticides can occur through domestic use in homes and gardens, consumption of treated foodstuffs, contaminated drinking water, or residence in agricultural areas associated with contaminated air, water or soil.

The possible teratogenic effects of pesticides in humans have long been the subject of controversy. Substances that we use everyday are turning up in our lakes, rivers and ocean, where they can impact aquatic life and possibly ourselves.

Chemicals are affecting aquatic environments and may be. The use of contaminated water for drinking and domestic chores have increased the chances of diarrhea which is a contributory factor to the deaths of more t under five Nigerian children.

The effects of EDs on the male reproductive system are notably attributed to the interactions of these chemicals with the normal production and/or function of steroid hormones that are responsible for the initiation of prostate development and the masculinization of the Wolffian ducts in order to form the epididymis, seminal vesicles, and vas deferens [].

Sposito et al. investigated the occurence and effects of selected emerging contaminants on the gene expression of an embryo of a zebrafish Danio rerio.

After the fish was induced with a mixture of caffein, imidacloprid, 2‐hydroxy atrazine, tebuthiuron, atrazine, and bisphenol A, there were no observable effects on the embryo of the test animal. Solvents contaminated drinking water supplies at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune during s We conducted a case–control study among Marines to evaluate associations between residential exposure to contaminated drinking water at Camp Lejeune and male breast cancer risk.

The study included 71 male breast cancer cases and controls identified from the Department. These effects include sterility, intrauterine growth restriction, premature birth, and complications of pregnancy. TCE Exposure. Strong associations between long-term TCE exposure and birth weight were observed in male, but not female infants.

Both the decrement in MBW and the increase in SGA among male infants exposed to TCE compared with unexposed male infants were large and were on the same magnitude of the effect of maternal cigarette smoking reported the general literature. *Borzelleca JF, Carchman RA.

In: Jolley RL.The term Environmental persistent pharmaceutical pollutants (EPPP) was first suggested in the nomination in of pharmaceuticals and environment as an emerging issue in a Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management by the International Society of Doctors for the Environment (ISDE).

The occurring problems from EPPPs are in parallel explained under environmental impact of.the effects on human health of the substances or contaminants examined in drinking-water. For each chemical contaminant or substance considered, a lead institution prepared a health criteria document evaluating the risks for human health from exposure to the particular chemical in drinking-water.
