    This is disrespect to the earthquake victims in Asia.
    There is even an article based on this map.

    This is a map of the fecal concentration in world oceans. Notice anything? One country, and the ocean which shares its name, appears to be responsible for the vast majority of human feces in the environment. Is this a problem?

    Human fecal matter can contain pathogens which spread disease to humans and wildlife alike. In 1998, an estimated 2.2 million deaths were associated with diarrhea, many of them due to fecal pollution of water. This problem is estimated to have gotten worse in the meantime, as population has continued to spiral out of control and little progress has been made to ameliorate problems associated with fecal pollution.

    In the 19th century, contaminated water was shown to cause a typhoid outbreak in London, leading the scientific community to accept that sewage was a source of disease. Developed countries began using chlorine filtration to improve the quality of their drinking water, and what followed was a perceptible drop in the prevalence of typhoid. In 1908, there were approximately 30 cases of typhoid per 100,000 people in the US, while in 1990 there were only 400 for the entire population. Typhoid isn’t the only disease associated with human feces in the drinking water. Human poop can contain bacteria like salmonella and e. coli which are linked to a wide variety of major diseases, as well as viruses and protozoa which cause diseases from meningitis to dysentery – potentially deadly without access to adequate care (like in destitutely poor areas of India).

    It’s not just the drinking water that we should be concerned about, though. Many foodborne outbreaks are associated with the use of polluted water during production and processing. Shellfish are one food source especially vulnerable to harmful pathogens in the world’s oceans. Fruit and vegetables are impacted by fecally-polluted irrigation water, which is of special concern for foods eaten uncooked. Water-related foodborne outbreaks have resulted in food shortages, which is concerning in a portion of the world as hungry as India where most food is produced locally.

    The nutrients and pathogens contained in feces introduces a threat to heath of ocean ecosystems, as well. For example, they can lead to an increased level of blue-green algae, which produces toxins and eventually rots, reducing the amount of oxygen in water, leading to the death of aquatic organisms. Human fecal concentration in the ocean has also been linked to a reduction in costal coral, and pathogens in human feces can easily reach marine mammals, reducing their numbers, also.

    Besides the fact that the Indian Ocean is probably gross to swim in, these are the reasons why you should care that it is increasingly becoming laden with poop. Next week, I will cover more about what is being done to combat this oceanic contamination.

    People even write based on this map!

    Indians polluting the Ocean truly disgusting. Mass open defecation on the beach and then washed all the way back into the Ocean. Imagine the poor animals living there

    What do you expect from the CPC 5 cent crowd + cheerleaders. They are like flies attracted to you know what ;)

    Like literally the link in the picture of the OP leads to:

    https://nctr.pmel.noaa.gov/indo_1204.html

    This convo sums it up good:

    One would think CPC et al could do a far better hit job than this one given the massive protection buffer they have grown diabetic and inbred on (here esp) that @gambit has correctly summarised:

    https://defence.pk/pdf/threads/the-...ees-protected-by-treaty.553894/#post-10417582

    They can openly be saying that kind of stuff in that thread after all (a large amount is now deleted), judge for yourself.

    Sadly, even the seniors are now dispensing snake oil. One of them repeated that notorious '700,000 Indian troops in Kashmir' nonsense, and I spent a lot of time showing him the real figures. The difference between truth and fable was hilarious.

    LoL

    Just can never understand why holy river is treated worse than a sewer.

    Yes there has been a real unfortunate trend I am seeing here....pains me to see what some are calling you as well in the drone attack kind of way....You have stuck your neck out far, understand I am both proud and humbled by it.

    What's to lose? Those whose regard we should wish to have we do have; there are some great Pakistanis, seniors mostly, but also some juniors, who are eminently balanced, the kind you would like to have been Indian, if I could be a jingo for a moment. Even those who politely tell us to get knotted, but never lose their manners while doing so, and who happen to be more than sound in their thinking. Take Tipu7 or Signalian, for instance, or an old friend, Meengla Sahib; I could go on and on. My Pakistani white-list is bigger than my black-list, and the black-list is teenagers from some Bradford slum who need to work off their raging hormones.

    On Strategic Forum, it's a different matter; it's still immature, and the bhakts (and I emphatically disagree with a friend who can't get that you are a Milton Friedman Republican in your position) are still strong. Discount Doc; he's crazy, and we can't get him to improve; I don't think he knows himself which way he's heading on a given day.

    Here, I have no inhibition. I am about to get out permanently, to concentrate on corporate training and skill-building, and want to leave with the right friends and the right enemies.

    I hope you agree.

    Yes I have made a good number of cherished friends and acquaintances here "across the divide". It has made the whole thing worth it....and it will stick with me forever more too.

    I hear you, and I will miss the banter you afford here when you choose that time.
