As water pollution in developing countries worsen, the water becomes a prime vehicle for disease and pollutants, spreading them into different areas of the country. People often use the local rivers to do laundry, not knowing that bacteria and heavy metals could be left on their clothes, and subsequently, enter their bodies through the skin, causing skin cancer or chronic poisoning.
