Drugs Found in U.S. Drinking Water!!!

No wonder we are all so messed up...

According to CNN.com, the following information has been found about our water supplies in the United States:

- There are pharmaceuticals in the drinking water of approximately 41 million Americans.
- The concentrations are not dangerously high.
- Yet they also mentioned that the "Low-level drug combinations are found to impact human cells and wildlife."
- A lot of bottlers, repackage tap water and do not typically treat the water or test it for drugs.

- Examples of some drugs that have been found in various cities include...antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones (last one is ironically in San Francisco).

For our readers who are from Wisconsin and Pennsylvania...

Milwaukee has high levels of continine.

Philadelphia has high levels of amoxicillin, azithromycin, carbamazepine, diclofenac, prednisone, and tetracycline.
