Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 27, 2012
Contaminated water sources are revealed in the “Personal Emergency Water Filtration Can Save Your Life From Water Contamination” article today. The Absolute Rights newsletter today talks about flooding from excess rainfall, hurricanes, and melting snow can cause clean water to become contaminated by the overflow of sewage plants, toxic waste sites, chemical and pesticide runoff, and other things that get into the water causing contamination.
The newsletter explains today that during a flood the public water supply can easily become contaminated with infectious organism, including intestinal bacteria such as E. coli, agents of typhoid, Hepatitis A Virus, Salmonella, and paratyphoid. People will experience signs and symptoms from one of these kinds of infections, which include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, fever, and muscle aches the newsletter adds.
People can also get tetanus during a flood, reveals the newsletter today, from contaminated soil or water entering broken areas in the skin, like cuts, abrasions, or puncture wounds. The Absolute Rights newsletter also explains that Tetanus is an infectious disease which affects the nervous system and causes severe muscle spasms, known as lockjaw. People can see symptoms as long as weeks after they have been exposed, which can begin as a headache, then later develop into difficulty swallowing or opening your jaw, the newsletter reports.
Water during a flood can also be contaminated with agricultural, industrial chemicals or by hazardous agents from hazardous waste sites, explains the Absolute Rights newsletter. The newsletter by Absolute Rights goes on to say that although different chemicals can cause a variety of different health effects, the signs and symptoms most frequently associated with chemical poisoning are headaches, dizziness, skin rashes, nausea, weakness, excitability, and fatigue. The only defense is to know how to clean drinking water with a survival water filter.
Chances of people surviving the after math of a flood can be greatly increased, if they have prepared in advance with survival water filters, plus learn how to make clean water, the Absolute Rights newsletter reveals. Absolute Rights has released the emergency survival “170 Gallons A Day” eBook, that has everything people need to know about how to make clean drinking water with personal emergency water filtration techniques using objects found around their home.
