    One of the most common diseases you can get from contaminated drinking water is diarrhoeal disease, with about 2 billion cases globally each year. Water contaminated by feces contains a multitude of viral, bacterial, and parasitic organisms, which then lead to diarrhoeal disease. Lack of sanitary water for cooking, drinking, and cleaning allows these organisms to spread and infect humans. In developing countries, the two most common causes of diarrohea are E. Coli and Rotavirus. Diarrhoeal disease is especially prevelant in young children, and results in dehydration, malnutrition, and a weakened immune system.
