Sewage is something that more people come in contact with than many realize and as such it is important to know the health risks that are associated with exposure to sewage. There are a few different health risks that are fairly common and that can set in quickly.
The first and most obvious is disease that is transmitted through feces and other waste that is often present in sewage. This can be things like e coli and other stomach ailments that make it difficult to eat, make it uncomfortable and cause bowel discomfort as well. There are other diseases that can be transmitted through sewage but the largest risk factor is of course gastrointestinal diseases.
Another health risk is breathing troubles. Methane and other gasses are often let off of sewage and other waste as it decomposes and this can cause respiratory distress if the affected person is exposed for a long period of time. If you are exposed to sewage and to the gasses that are let off of it, you should seek immediate help so that you can truly see what you can do to prevent permanent damage.
Still another issue that you can expect to see with exposure to sewage is nausea, vomiting, fever, and other issues that make it very uncomfortable for the affected person. Sewage is something that you can avoid easily. If you are living in an area where you know there is raw sewage or exposed sewage you should take the time to notify local authorities so that the mess can be cleaned up and you should avoid the area if at all possible.
