Adam Smith said: "ARGs are not regulated in any way and are a challenging emerging contaminant of concern due to our reliance on biological treatment in the engineered water cycle," "Because they are biological contaminants -- small fragments of DNA that are released to the environment -- bacteria present in receiving environments can uptake them, becoming resistant themselves, and further perpetuating the spread of resistance" External link

Adam Smith said: "Lessening the global spread of antibiotic resistance will require an interdisciplinary approach that spans environmental and clinical systems. We must act fast before we enter a so called 'post-antibiotic world' where bacterial infections become impossible to treat," External link

Carlo Foresta continua: “Confrontando i risultati con quelli ottenuti in un analogo gruppo di controllo di giovani non esposti a questo inquinamento - (\*) - è emerso che negli esposti la densità minerale ossea era significativamente inferiore ai controlli. Questi risultati suggeriscono un’interferenza dei PFAS sullo sviluppo scheletrico, così come altri interferenti endocrini non considerati in questo studio. Nel 24% dei soggetti esposti si osservava infatti una maggior frequenza di osteopenia e osteoporosi, rispetto al solo 10% dei soggetti di controllo” External link

Carol Miller said: "Educating the public is absolutely critical to help promote safe behavior for waste disposal," "What we put down our drains and toilets can and does have a great impact on our sewer and water systems. Everyone needs to think about the impact they are having with what they dispose down drains in their homes, restaurants and beyond, and be a part of the solution by changing how they dispose of grease, wipes and other products. Even items that claim they are biodegradable or flushable do not break down in sewers and are a part of the fatberg problem" External link

Arun Kumar said: “to understand possibility of exposure of microbial pollutants during different reuse practices,” External link

timesofindia Sunday, September 15, 2019 5:35:00 PM CEST

Arun Kumar explained: “We want to act as a support system to DJB and other authorities and help identify problems in the water and to check if there exist any pathogens that can cause viral infection and diseases. This is because in India, people are exposed to emerging contaminants, such as pathogens from different environmental media, such as air, water, and solids,” External link

timesofindia Sunday, September 15, 2019 5:35:00 PM CEST

Arun Kumar added: “This information is needed to develop quantitative microbial risk estimates for the Indian environment. Towards this effort, the first hurdle is to determine an appropriate methodology for detecting pathogens in environment,” External link

Arun Kumar said: “The trend of water reuse is increasing in India due to shortage of clean water. Efforts have been increasing to explore feasibility of using wastewater, both domestic and industrial wastewater, as gardening water, irrigation water, and finally as potable water. However, considerations of exposure risks and impacts on environment during reuse practices have not been explored. We want to provide a mechanism that someone planning to reuse water from a water body will get assessment and certification from the DJB,” External link
