Our bodily fluids can contain a sleuth of potential hazards. If we are exposed to infected fluids, we can catch all sorts of hazardous diseases. In other cases, such as the cholera outbreak in London during the 19th century, bodily waste was not properly separated from drinking water so as to greatly facilitate the spread of contamination. It is for these reasons and more that Sydney waste services are so vitally important. Sydney waste services is what keeps our homes, offices and more sanitised. We begin by first outlining some of the common bodily fluids we are susceptible to.
Some of the bodily fluids present in our bodies include blood, saliva, semen or vaginal fluids, mucus, sweat and urine. Each of these substances are not appealing but have their own specific purposes in our bodies. We outline a few of these below:
Blood actually plays a major role in our bodies defence system by preventing infection. This is done by carrying waste away from our cells and flushing these bad toxins in our urine, faeces or sweat. Blood also supplies our bodies with important nutrients such as sugar, oxygen and hormones to help our body function and survive.
Saliva or spit is mostly water. Although this contains important proteins and minerals that together prevent gum disease and tooth decay to help us chew and swallow. Have you every noticed how much harder it is for food to go down when your mouth and throat are dry?
Semen and vaginal fluids
Semen present in males, is full of proteins whilst vaginal fluids contain carbohydrates, amino acids, and proteins.
Mucus is full of antibodies, enzymes, and proteins that help to fight bacteria and viruses. This thicker liquid is important to protect the nose, mouth and throat. Mucus stops each of these drying out.
Urine is mostly water, yet the other minor percentage is mostly chemicals and dead blood cells. Any excess fluid that your body does not need is also flushed out in urine.
From the above, we can begin to see how complex and important each of the fluids in our body are. Yet each of these can spread disease. HIV or human immunodeficiency virus attacks our immune system. This can be spread through saliva, blood, semen or vaginal liquids. Hepatitis B & C are also infectious diseases that affect our liver. These are spread using the same fluids, although hepatitis C is only spready through direct contact with someone’s blood.
In any case, each of these exemplify the crucial need for Sydney waste services. Yet other negative externalities extend beyond the scope of the human race. Illegal dumping or other garbage that is not properly processed will destroy native habitats reducing the fertility of the natural landscape and in turn, ultimately impacts the animals.
High use of plastics in one-time use products has already had a significant impact to marine life. Other materials can contain toxic chemicals which will not only leech into the fish and other animals we might eat but can even result in suffocation for these creatures if they consume this waste.
The sad reality is that only a fraction of our waste is still green friendly. Although many companies are starting to promote environmental sustainability with conscious choices about how they package their goods.
Sydney waste services permeates, often indirectly, across our society. Even in economic downturns we are still reliant on Sydney waste services because it is such an essential daily provision.
In conclusion, we should continue to do our due individual responsibility to think sustainably so as to assist Sydney waste services.
