Drugged Drinking Water, Pharmaceuticals In Drinking Water

A vast array of pharmaceutical drugs - including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones - have been found in the drinking water supplies of Americans.

As an Environmental Scientist, who had done extensive research on sediments, this news did not surprise me. Sediments are history table of Mother Nature. Sediments samples (Core), near water treatment plants (Sewage and waste) should be taken and chemically analyzed to see the level of these drugs to understand the history of these drugs in cycle. New cycle studies on pharma drug cycle, ecotoxicology of drugs in environment, and fate of these drugs should be throughly investigated.
