Hygiene concerns paving the pathway for diseases like typhoid and diarrhoea

We are heading towards a world where water will be scarce. On the top of that, whatever access we have to water is not clean and safe to drink. To make matters worse, the fundamental sanitation is also lacking with every passing day. Fatal diseases like typhoid and diarrhoea are dominant among the people who have no access to clean drinking water or lack of hygiene. Moreover, a report was published by WHO that out of the twenty-two million people suffering from typhoid around the globe, 222,000 people die every year. Alongside, a report from CENTERS OF DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION stated: “Diarrhea kills 2,195 children every day—more than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined.” These reports are more than enough to prove how fatal these lack of personal hygiene diseases are.

Typhoid fever is caused when there is an infection in the body due to Salmonella Typhi. The reason for this is contaminated food and water. Same is the case with diarrhoea as lack of hygiene also causes it. It is evident that more than a billion people defecate in the open. Later on, the hands not washed correctly, and the same hand is used for consuming food. The pathogens get infused into the body along with the food. These pathogens make the immunity weak in the body. That, in turn, increases the risk of vulnerability to many other diseases.

By far, there a single solution by which these diseases can be prevented; It is by proper hygiene and sanitation. Clean drinking water and an adequate amount of food is next requirement for the body. Awareness can only achieve the goal of a disease-free environment. It is necessary for the local authorities to spread the knowledge of how important it is to keep your surrounding and yourself clean. In many parts of developing countries, although there a scarcity of sanitation, personal hygiene in women is neglected further. It is essential to follow basic sanitation rules like washing hands after defecation, brushing teeth daily, cleanse your body and face regularly. Apart from that, keep your surrounding clean.

Another challenge that comes along with sanitation and hygiene is the usage or water. As mentioned earlier, we are already facing a lack of clean water. In that case, how is it possible to eradicate the sanitary problems.

Probably, Clensta international has a solution. Dr. Gupta and his team have founded waterless bathing products. One just has to take a few drops of the fluid in the hands and rub it gently all over. Later on, clean the lather with a clean, dry cloth, tissue paper or dry towel.  It can flush all the dirt, dust, microorganism and oil particles from the body. They claim that a hundred ml of the waterless bath and waterless shampoo can save up to 350 litres of water and still keep you clean. This is an excellent product in itself which can save water, and keep the sanitation intact at the same time.
