In 1984-6 the effects on environment and health were investigated in a village with biogas digesters for 97% of all households as compared to a village without any biogas plants. The number of flies caught and the hookworm and roundworm larvae found in the soil served as indicators. In addition, faeces examinations were carried out for the population. These showed intestinal infections to have continually decreased in the village with the biogas plant during the course of time ; in 1986 these were about 25% of the village without a biogas plant.
