For anyone how really wants to know how dangerous what you flush down the toilet is below is a link to a report about worldwide death due to lack of sanitation.In the developing world 80% of disease is due to poor sanitation.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3865667/human%20waste.pdf
Nobody doubts that there are health risks related to a lack of proper sewage. We have had a sewer system here since the 1800's in Southbridge.Another proper way to handle sewage if one has enough property is with a septic system.Domestic hot water and quality public water supplies, combined with these two methods of sewage treatment, does indeed save many lives worldwide as they help us avoid sickness related to bacteria and viruses.What goes down our toilets is significantly less problematic to handle in a sewer system than industrial waste and leachate from landfills that accept contaminated soil. The volume of contaminated soil in our landfill now weighs more than the combined body weight of every man, woman, and child in Southbridge!Thank God Almighty that condition sixteen of the landfill site assignment forbids bringing leachate that is brewed from that contaminated soil to our sewer treatment facility!
