A perfect setup to prevent epidemics is currently in affect throughout the world. Sanitary engineering, though not directly, is largely responsible for the annihilation of many diseases that used to be very problematic, such as typhus or cholera. However, these diseases are outdated and haven't been a problem for over a century due to the success of infrastructure such as water treatment and sewage. Modern causes of death (such as car accidents) are still overshadowed by the death toll taken up by illness. What is different is the nature of those diseases. In order to prevent them, on a larger scale, a new approach must be created. This paper offers an idea on how to return to the core of sanitary engineering and improve modern health conditions by exploring the etiology of these afflictions and providing precise engineering solutions.
