Seagrass can improve marine water quality: Study 17.2.2017 DNA: India
Underwater flowering plants and seagrass meadows known to produce natural antibiotics, can also improve the water quality of sea by suppressing pollution, reveals a study. According to researchers, seagrass meadows reduce bacteria pathogenic to humans and marine life by up to 50 percent. They found that with the presence of seagrass, the bacteria Enterococcus -- harmful for humans -- reduced three-fold. The findings, published in the Journal of Science, highlight the importance of seagrass ecosystems to the health of humans and other organisms. It not only could they help with improving water quality in ever more populated coastal zones, they also play a key role in sustaining the rapid increase of aquaculture in the face of global food shortages. Plants, with their natural biocides, play a vital role - one that can offer significant economic benefits. The researchers worked in waters off four Indonesian islands, to assess the influence of seagrass on marine microbial pathogens and disease - an effort in ...

UP Elections 2017: Politicians turn a blind eye as illnesses plague this UP village 11.2.2017 DNA: Opinion
Locals in Gogwan are a worried lot. Lack of development and jobs for the youth is one area of concern, but the most pressing one is that of health. Illness runs high in this village, one of the largest in the district of Shamli. Cancer, heart attacks, tuberculosis and jaundice continue to claim lives, and according to a list prepared by the locals, 33 people died here in 2016. “Barring one person who died in an accident, the rest of the deaths were due to illnesses, mainly cancer or water-borne diseases,” said Mursaleen Khan, a Gogwan resident. Gogwan, comes under the Kairana constituency, where the sitting MLA is Nahid Hassan from the Samajwadi Party (SP).

Money has been systematically siphoned off in the name of providing rations or employment guarantee scheme programmes. Up to Rs ...

Safeda Basti, a home to deadly diseases 8.2.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Kanhaiya Kumar, 17, has not only contracted deadly chikungunya but dengue as well in the recent past. If you are wondering what are the odds, the answer is that Kumar is a resident of Safeda Basti in east Delhi.  The illegal squatter settlement on the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) land, which has been notified by the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB), has been facing issues of sanitation, including open drains and defecation, and water supply for years now. “Several diseases arise because of the lack of cleanliness in the area. The drains are not covered and the Municipal corporation works according to its will. The workers come once in two months to clean the drains but they simply sieve out the filth and leave it on the roads, making it difficult for us to even breathe,” said Anju Devi, a resident of Safeda Basti. The other major problem that the residents face is the lack of toilets. Public toilets open at 6 am and shut as early as 10 pm, forcing people to defecate in the ...
