    Water pollution can cause skin diseases like skin allergies, skin cancer, rashes etc.


    The organization Global Oceanic Environmental Survey (GOES) said that the water pollution is one of the major environmental problems which is also a greatest environmental threat. The two countries India and China have high levels of water pollution.
