Not a doctor, but I have played one or more on TV.

Your Rx goes into the toilet whether you pas it though your body or not first.

You may metabolize some, like chocolate, but for the most part your liver and kidneys pay the price for your taking pills and potions.

These are just a few of the images we've recorded. And you can see, it wasn't what we thought. There's been no war here and no terraforming event. The environment is stable. It's the Pax. The G-23 Paxilon Hydrochlorate that we added to the air processors. It was supposed to calm the population, weed out aggression. Well, it works. The people here stopped fighting. And then they stopped everything else. They stopped going to work, they stopped breeding, talking, eating. There's 30 million people here, and they all just let themselves die.

I'm actually waiting for the day when municipal sewer systems require toilets to be on different lines than all the other drains in your house.

One reason is because of water reclamation.  It is easier to process water from your sink or bathtub than it is from your toilet.  I expect that within 20 years, many munis will require you to water your landscape with reclaimed water.

The other reason is because of medications.  The EPA is starting to take notice of all these medications making their way into the water system.  While the article mentioned Prozak, one of the biggest issues is with estrogen from HRT in older women.  It is causing fertility issues in fish, amphibians and, in cases where towns pull their water from rivers, in people.  If the EPA starts to make waste treatment facilities decontaminate to higher standards, it may make sense to separate water that doesn't contain human waste.

The good old days when you could develop film using just water from the Rhine (Rijn) river in the Netherlands -- but since cell phone cameras no one really develops film anymore. Good to hear the aquatic wildlife is doing some drugs -- the DEA needs to do a little more long-term scuba training, say in the Virgin Islands.

Very doubtful.  Soap is extremely harmful to fish and other aquatic lifeforms.

We have 6+ billion people on the globe. 3 million of which are in the US. Around the 1950's, we had a little over 1 billion with 1.5 million in the US.

By the 1970s we had a huge amount of disposable products and a great selection of OTC medications. By the 1980s, hundreds of new prescription medications were on the market.

As far back as the early 70's, people were pointing out that vitamins were showing up in gray water released into the oceans from the unexpected surplus excreted in bodily waste. The Big Vitamin Push had begun in the 70's.

By the end of the 70's, concerns were being voiced over the effects of antibiotics and hormones given to meat animals to keep them healthy and to bulk on weight faster. The chemicals were showing up in consumers.

It dawned on a few that as population growth increased, more and more items appeared in the waters, food and air. Many not exactly good for you.

When you double and triple your population and tend to concentrate the majority of it in specific areas, like along sea coasts and major rivers, the biological waste concentrates. Most 'cleaned' waste water winds up in the sea anyhow, dumped in directly or into rivers and streams.

The greater the population, the greater the pollution. Especially in major cities where folks live and work in huge buildings stacked shoulder to shoulder and one on top of the next.

The human body doesn't metabolize a percentage of most medications, so the residual will wind up in the sewage, where the technology to remove it entirely does not exist yet.

Usually, during an explosion in development, one of the last things to be considered is the treatment facilities needed to handle the increased influx of waste. Often, they are expanded only after existing facilities become overwhelmed.

Consider this: the average person excretes 3 to 4 lbs of solid waste a day along with anywhere from a quart to half a gallon of liquid. Multiply that by the amount of population and you get millions of pounds of shiat that has to be handled daily.

Factor in the millions of pounds of organic waste contributed by food and non-food farm animals. (Horses need their stalls mucked out daily.)

Factor in the thousands of pounds of unused medications, both OTC and prescription, which get dumped into the sewer when no longer needed -- since a major advertising campaign for public safety encouraged the disposal of old medications.

Currently, you have one other choice: turn all old medications into a pharmacy, which will charge you a small fee to dispose of them. They ship them to a disposal company. How they are disposed of then, I don't know but even incineration will leave behind various compounds in the ash. Most bulk ash tends to be buried in designated trash pits, which will eventually, leak.

Basically, humans are planet destroying pigs. That's not going to change until we manage to get into space and bleed off excess population. I don't expect us to make much headway into bulk space travel for at least 200 years.

By then, we'll probably have some really psychotic fish tearing around the ocean. As it is, we can't eat much of certain fish since they tend to absorb heavy metals like Mercury. That didn't show up until the 1970s. By the 1990's, even with the restrictions placed on Mercury usage, tainted fish started showing up all across the globe.

It's a problem? Yes. A deliberate one -- like the mess from Big Oil? No. It's the inevitable result of explosive population growth and technology created to make people live better.

Also, soap does a wonderful job of killing insects and plants.  It's a wonder chemical!

The desert southwest makes extensive use of reclaimed water.  It is used for landscape irrigation, some agriculture irrigation, artificial lakes, artificial wetlands (aquifer recharging) and even to run the steam turbines at the Palo-Verde nuclear facility.  In every case, I'm not aware of any issues with unfiltered soap particles impacting plants or wildlife.  The only concern is with remaining traces of human pathogens which renders the water uncertified for human consumption.

Our local PUD likes to joke that the water they discharge through their purple pipes is often cleaner than the water they intake.  So I am having problems making the connection with the runoff concerns you're trying to bring up.

And the whole reason I mentioned utilities separating out human waste is because most water districts will not allow reclaimed water use for residential applications unless the water is certified for human consumption.  There is a significant jump in cost to do that.  Keeping those pathogens down to a minimum from the start could reduce those costs.  It mostly boils down to the additional costs involved with a second set of waste pipes versus the extra costs involved with the additional filtering needed for certification.  Unless the parallel pipes were laid down in conjunction with other work, it probably wouldn't be cost beneficial.  But incrementally installed over 20+ years, it might.

Yeah hey that's because the water is treated.   It ain't taken from your shower and then directly put on stuff, eh?

I never said that we should take untreated water and use it directly for irrigation.  If I somehow implied it through omission, then let me clarify - everything that runs through a purple pipe should be treated.
