water facts 

Our world depends on the availability and reliability of clean and safe water. As human population
grows and industrial and agriculture industries expand, declining water quality has become a critical
global issue. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), 2
million tons of sewage and other effluents drain into the world’s water every day resulting in a variety of 
devastating consequences.

  • At least 74 million Americans in 42 states drink chromium-polluted tap water, much of it likely in the cancer-causing hexavalent form (chromium-6).
  •  According to the World Health Organization, 3.2 million children under the age of five in developing nations die each year as a result of unsafe drinking water and poor sanitation.
  • Contaminated water can transmit diseases such diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid, andpolio and contributes to the development of diseases such as cancer, organ damage, and physical and intellectual disabilities.
  • The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) estimates that lead exposure accounted for 12.4% of the global burden of idiopathic developmental intellectual disability, 2.5% of the global burden of ischaemic heart disease and 2.4% of the global burden of stroke.
  • There is enough fresh water on the planet for seven billion people, but 1.6 billion people face economic water shortage due to polluted and unsustainably managed water.
  • Seychelle Environmental Technologies Incorporated has developed the Ionic Adsorption Micron Filter that removes up to 99.99% of contaminants and helps to provide safe and quality drinking water to those in need.
  • The filtration products at Seychelle are the most field and laboratory tested products of their kind and treat the five major zones of contamination.
