YUCK!

Wired has this to share: Drugs in our drinking water. OK, so it sounds frighteningly prevelant. It’s in our groundwater, our rivers, our bottled water, our city drinking water… can you imagine the PR for this? There isn’t one person or one company responsible. It’s all of us. We all contribute through the wastes we expel and have processed into drinking water. (Did I say yuck?) The aspirin you take for your headache, the antidepressant she takes to get through the day, the Viagra he swallows every week, they all end up in our water.

So far there are no reports out of negative effects on humans, but certain animals have been affected. How long will it be before we are seeing correlations in people? 5-aspirin.jpg
