Pharmaceuticals in Drinking Water

Yet another study of pharmaceuticals in streams has disturbing results.

‘A team of researchers, led by hydrologist Paul Bradley, recently collected water samples from 59 small streams in the Southeast…  All 59 streams tested positive for at least one of compounds and the overall average was six different compounds per stream.

“Pharmaceutical contaminants are growing aquatic-health concerns and largely attributed to wastewater treatment facility discharges,” the study says. But only 17 of the 59 streams have any reported wastewater discharges.’ You can find information on the study here:

Other research shows that this is not just a problem for aquatic insects and fish but may also affect human cell function: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23558785/##

I suggest that individuals check their local water quality report to learn the source of their water. If there are cities, livestock facilities, apparently even homes with septic systems, then I suggest the following action:
