Posted on: December 27, 2009

* Hepatitis – An inflammation of the liver caused by infection or toxic agents and characterized by jaundice, fever, liver enlargement, and abdominal pain. Sewage backup is reported to be related to Hepatitis.

Inhalation of contaminated organisms is a simple way for micro organisms to penetrate the human body. It happens when we breathe aerosolized particles or contaminated dust.

A better understanding of the facts about sewer backup, potential health risks when exposed to sewage backup and its products and diseases transmission is the key to keep you and your family safe.

Feature:
MRSA: Where Do We Go From Here?
– By David G. Armstrong, DPM, MSc, PhD

“When it comes to diabetic foot infections, the presence of MRSA may lead to poorer outcomes, an increased risk of amputations, higher treatment costs and increased mortality.”

After sewage back spills, my neighbor contracted hepatitis. His foot became so infected it was amputated; he died age 50.

Look what happened to my feet as a result of the raw sewage.


Not to mention ongoing illnesses, respiratory – this is less than ONE YEAR!

My handicapped uncle’s hospitalizations and death coincided with the discharging of raw sewage.

Here Fresno, CA’s Tower District is the proof that the risk analyst was lying about the cause behind sewage back spills. They were 100% deliberate and intentional – behind secret replacement of the water system. Within 2 homes there was ongoing illness, respiratory, cellulitis, pseudomonas, repeated hospitalization, amputation, death and more.

Why does a sewer backup present a serious health threat? A sewer backup will always be the source of health hazards mainly because of the organic waste and wastewater that it contains. Such filthy place can be an easy nesting ground for bacteria, viruses and harmful micro organism. It is hazardous because of the many ways it carries diseases which is sometimes difficult to detect.

For you to truly understand the hazards sewer backup can bring to you and your family, one should learn what sewage first. Sewer backup is also known as septic tank waste or raw sewage.

Septic tank waste typically contains everything from wastewater to solid waste matter, human feces, industrial discharge and organic waste produced by households and industrial sources. It is unloaded by drains and sewage lines.

Harmful micro organisms such as coliform, fecal colifrom, Escherichia coliform and Enterococcus root from its main source excrement.

Being exposed to sewage or to its fecal contents may cause a number if diseases:

* Gastroenteritis – An inflammation of the stomach and intestine causing vomiting, diarrhea and cramps if irritation is too much. It is often accompanied with fever if gastroenteritis is a result of an infectious agent.

* Hepatitis – An inflammation of the liver caused by infection or toxic agents and characterized by jaundice, fever, liver enlargement, and abdominal pain. Sewage backup is reported to be related to Hepatitis.

*Occupational asthma – A respiratory disorder characterized by labored breathing, chest constriction and wheezing.

*Weil’s disease – A feverish condition marked by gastroenteritis, severe headache, pains in the back and calf prostration, and sometimes developing of mild jaundice.

*Allergic Alveolitis – An inflammation of the inner part of the lung (alveolitis). Sewage backup may be associated with this disease; nevertheless it is rarely reported with relation. It starts with fever, breathlessness, dry cough, muscular aches and malaise.

In addition, exposure to sewer backup may cause fatal damage to liver, kidney and blood disorder. Infection of skin or eyes is a sign of sewer backup related contamination.

It is an important thing to know how disease can be transmitted. Knowing the transmission pattern of sewage backup related diseases provides preventive ways for micro organisms to get in a human body.

The most common way of transmission is mouth-to-mouth contact and it happens during eating and smoking
. Hand-to-mouth contact can also transmit disease. It occurs while wiping the face with something contaminated such as hand or gloves.
Another possible transmission is skin contact, when skin comes in contact with contaminated matter through cuts, scratches or deep wounds. Certain parasites can enter the body by means of entering through the surface of the eyes nose and mouth.

Inhalation of contaminated organisms is a simple way for micro organisms to penetrate the human body. It happens when we breathe aerosolized particles or contaminated dust.

A better understanding of the facts about sewer backup, potential health risks when exposed to sewage backup and its products and diseases transmission is the key to keep you and your family safe.
