Yeah a good amount of that stuff doesn't break down or get filtered out in waste treatment facilities. One of the reasons we don't really use grey water for anything other than landscaping or agriculture is because you're taking other peoples' meds if you drink any of that. In places like Seattle you really wouldn't need coffee or antidepressants; just drink treated wastewater and you'd have all the caffeine and SSRIs you could stand.
Or i guess just eat some fish from whichever waterway gets the treated water. Same difference, except now with more mercury and other heavy metals.

West coast species based on an article down the way.

Well over 10 yrs ago I watched a news clip about the CDN navy dumping massive amounts of drugs into the ocean. Bag after bag just emptied over the side. Can't  tell me that is not  still going on all over the world.

As someone who takes vast quantities of prescription drugs in order to cope, who's more important, me or the fish?

As someone who suffers from bad self-esteem, the fish, clearly.

This is Walgreen's calling to let you know your prescriptions for Fentanyl, Xanax, oxycontin, vicodin, warfarin, and lipitor are ready.

Maybe that explains why Florida is actually going insane. They eat a lot of fresh fish. Maybe we should be dumping larger amounts of Haloperidol in the ocean.

So how does this work, do I smoke the fish or inject them between my toes?

No mention of what the actual levels found were. I'm wondering if they're higher than what's allowed to be pumped into any factory farmed cows, pigs, or chickens. Besides the antidepressants, which I don't think they give to factory farm beasts. Maybe they should....

The EPA and environmental sciences professors have been monitoring pharmaceuticals in fish since the 1980s.  I knew a professor back in 1990 that was measuring birth control meds in fish in the Connecticut river in MA in 1992.
The problem is that these drugs are not removed by our current wastewater treatment facilities and so end up downstream in the sewage free effluent.
As we live longer and better on medication, the drugs and metabolites have been increasing in the environment as well, and it's increasing over time.
Although alarming, climate change is a more serious problem, and defeating fascism is even more critical as we can't solve the other problems with evil like Putin and the GQP around.

Northern: Although alarming, climate change is a more serious problem


This is a clear and present danger to our health right now, considering we consume these fish and drink the water.

Nothing surprises me any more. Environment is in peril, plants and animals are going extinct. And we are the cause of it. Not in my life time, but my children and grandchildren will feel it. Human arrogance, greed and disregard for the environment is the cause.  Big business is also at fault. Money before anything. It will cost us humans dearly.
