Bathing in polluted rivers, Water-Borne Diseases, and fuzzy measures: a case study in India

0

Religious bathing in river water is practised in India and Nepal since time memorable. The World Health Organization in their report (2002) states that diarrhoeal diseases alone killed over 700,000 Indians in the year 1999. In spite of best efforts, there has been no straightforward solution technique available to prove/disprove the cause – effect relationship between bathing in river waters and Water Borne Diseases (WBDs), and the sequel is an attempt to formalise a structured approach to study the above relationship. The study reveals that there exists a strong association between bathing in polluted river and water borne diseases, and the evidence supporting diarrhoeal diseases is 0.58.
