“Nowadays, the Ganges” - Gopal Krishna writes “that is a source of life in northern India, has become a symbol of the greatest ecological disaster in the country, since the last hundred years. Every minute in the Ganges basin, one people dies of diarrhoea and, every year, eight out of ten people suffer from intestinal”attacks. Water pollution produces harmful effects on human health, altering the food chain, encouraging the increase of cancer, respiratory and kidney diseases, and affecting deeply the local ecosystem.© Giulio Di Sturco
