        The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Poop | Science Spotlight

        Many diseases are spread through some of the microbes that live in our digestive system. This isn't really a problem for people in developed countries, where their sewage plants take the waste and treat it so that it becomes harmless, but for developing countries, where if sewage isn't properly handled, it can become a threat to the whole community. Engineers are working on a tool that kills these harmful microbes before the water is released for human consumption.
