  4. In 2006, 7 out of 10 people without access to improved sanitation were rural inhabitants
  5. An estimated 801,000 children younger than 5 years of age perish from diarrhea each year, mostly in developing countries. This amounts to 11% of the 7.6 million deaths of children under the age of five and means that about 2,200 children are dying every day as a result of diarrheal diseases

I think that the Biological Cleansing is the most effective solution to fight against the proliferation of certain contaminations.
The waste waters are rejected, without any really effective treatment, in nature. With the increase in the world population, all these waste waters come to pollute the water resources drinkable.
It will be necessary well that the actors town planners consider that the cleansing is the priority of the priorities and that the only solution it is the Biological A.B Cleansing for a biological and productive ecological activity general final economic removing in a very effective way the position risk of the water tables.
