Vegetables Watered With Wastewater May Spread Chronic Diseases

Vegetables and plants grown with wastewater are dangerous to health

An international team of researchers from Burkina Faso, Cameroon and Germany found that wastewater used to grow vegetables could spread diseases in Africa. Led by scientists from the University of Birmingham, the researchers found virulent human pathogens in sewer water samples taken from canals in Ouagadougou, the 2.2 million peopled capital of Burkina Faso.

The study was published in the journal Environmental Research.

Access to Clean Water Will Stop the Spread of Bacteria from the Environment to People

Scarcity of natural water makes many urban farmers in Africa to grow vegetables using sewer water –water mixed with waste matter. This causes powerful germs to invade and grow in the plants, causing diarrhea, chronic gastritis and gastroenteritis among other diseases that cause death in low and middle-income countries.

Having found various antibiotic resistance genes in water from the canals, the researchers noted that bacteria and antimicrobial resistance could become commonplace among animals and humans. Using wastewater for urban agriculture, they found, is dangerous for human and animal health.

Professor Laura Piddock, of the University of Birmingham’s Institute of Microbiology and Infection, revealed wastewater must not be used anymore to irrigate vegetable farms. This is to prevent exposure to fecal pathogens and other associated risks. She noted that antibiotic resistant bacteria appear to breed and thrive in African wastewater.

“There is also an urgent need to improve global access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene in low and middle-income countries to help prevent bacterial resistance spreading from the environment to people,” Piddock said.

A UN study reveals that up to 90% of vegetables consumed by city dwellers are grown by about 200 million urban agriculturists globally. Dr. Blaise Bougnon of the University of Yaounde in Cameroon said that about 80% of city vegetable growers rely on untreated sewer water to irrigate plant farms.

Scarcity of Water and Poor Hygiene Cause Thousands to Die Annually From Preventable Diseases

This development has caused an increase in antibiotic multi-resistant bacteria. These bacteria are not treatable with most antibiotics and therapies we have in the market today. Only very rare and expensive drugs can combat these resistant bacteria. And since most people cannot afford these expensive drugs, morbidity and mortality result.

Research proved that humans and animals excrete between 50% and 90% of administered antiobics back into the environment. This causes the excreted drugs to remain in the soil and water for many years where plants and fish could absorb them.

According to the World Health Organization, up to 850,000 people die every year from diarrhea infections in poor countries. This is largely due to insufficent water, poor hygiene and unchecked sanitation.

Retail Channel Series: Delivery saver schemes in the UK – 2019

Summary

The Delivery Saver Schemes in the UK – 2019 report forms part of GlobalData’s Retail Channel series, and offers a comprehensive insight into the consumer dynamics and spending habits of consumers that subscribe to food & non-food delivery saver schemes. The report analyses the two types of delivery schemes including their usage at various retailers and consumer attitudes.

The proportion of online food & grocery shoppers who have subscribed to a food & grocery delivery saver scheme in the past 12 months has risen from 35.1% in 2018 to 37.0% in 2019, driven by females and 25-34 year olds.

16-34 year olds are the most common subscribers to non-food delivery saver schemes, such as Amazon Prime and ASOS Premier.

Scope

– The most significant feature that would persuade non-subscribers to sign up to a saver scheme is rewards, including loyalty points and free gifts.
– Most consumers are reluctant to pay more than 10 a year for a delivery saver scheme – with the exception of Amazon, for which the lure of additional benefits and same day delivery warrants the 79 annual cost.

Reasons to buy

– Use our in-depth consumer insight to learn how delivery saver schemes can impact consumer shopping habits and ensure that your delivery options meet the needs of shoppers.
– Understand what drives consumers to subscribe to a delivery saver scheme, such as how much consumers are willing to spend on these options in order to maximise sales potential.
