Untreated wastewater from cities expose 885 million people to severe health risks globally: my latest article!

Hi,

Next time when you are lured by the healthy looking fresh vegetables being sold in urban limits or periphery areas, don’t just jump into them. They could have been produced with wastewater, from the nearby city or town, with high levels of faecal contamination hence posing a lot of health risks for you and your family. A just published study by a team of researchers led by a recent graduate from University of California finds out that croplands irrigated globally by untreated urban wastewater is actually 50 per cent greater than previously thought.

Please read my latest article in SixDegrees. This was first published in Urban Update magazine.

Look forward to listen from you.

Thanks and regards,

Ranjan
