Health Tip: Coping With Polluted Water

(HealthDay News) -- Drinking polluted water can trigger vomiting, diarrhea, skin rashes, reproductive problems and developmental problems, the website girlshealth.gov says.

Here are the site's suggestions to help curb water pollution:

  • Recycle batteries and other harmful trash, such as paint.
  • Have water at home tested for pollutants. Filter or boil water if it contains bacteria, lead or chlorine.
  • Take used motor oil to a recycling center.
  • Use cold water for drinking and cooking because it is less likely to contain lead.
