Pharmaceuticals in Drinking Water ~ Why Not?

Waste Water Treatment Throughout the World is Not Designed to Catch the Pharmaceutical Waste Put into the Toilet as We Go to the Bathroom

It is really important for the FDA to understand that waste water treatment throughout the world is not designed to catch the pharmaceutical waste put into the toilet as we go to the bathroom.

What we do not recycle cycles through us, our food sources and ecosystems. What does that mean as it circles the globe? Dr. Lynch's incredible work on the body burden is specific to chemicals inside people including a fetus that has never taken a breath. It was amazing to work in his clinical environment and for him to be giving men testosterone because they were chemically more effeminate.

The Body Burden Study was about testing randomly collected umbilical cords to check for toxins because the cord was thought to be a shield between the mom and the fetus. 100% of the umbilical cords tested had Mercury, banned pesticides, fossil fuel emissions, incinerated garbage, scotch guards, fire retardants, plastics and hundreds more. Mom didn't work in industrial environments.

For people thinking this is a 3rd world country where the tests were done would be wrong. The Red Cross collected the 10 randomly picked umbilical cords and the country was the United States of America.

While it may seem like a good idea not to be involved in drug addiction, we are drinking crack pee and the rest. In closing when Dr. Lynch asked an Oncologist what this body burden meant to a fetus, the Oncologist replied "Children don't have cancer at 10, they have had it for 10 years and 9 months."

Reports of trace concentrations of pharmaceuticals in the water cycle have raised concerns over potential human health risks from exposure to very low levels of pharmaceuticals in drinking-water.

This technical report aims to provide practical guidance and recommendations in managing concerns over pharmaceuticals in drinking-water, taking into consideration the available scientific knowledge and evidence. It emphasizes the importance to prioritize this emerging issue in the overall context of water safety management, which includes microbial and other chemical risks that may threaten the safety of drinking-water.

Study finds levels of pharmaceuticals in wastewater widespread

[Excerpt] A new study of wastewater treatment plants in Minnesota found widespread low concentrations of pharmaceuticals. The medicines seen here were turned in at a disposal facility in Duluth.

Even Drugs Thrown in the Trash Can End Up in Your Drinking Water

The federal government advises throwing most unused or expired medications into the trash instead of down the drain, but they can end up in the water anyway, a study from Maine suggests.

Tiny amounts of discarded drugs have been found in water at three landfills in the state, confirming suspicions that pharmaceuticals thrown into household trash are ending up in water that drains through waste, according to a survey by the state's environmental agency that's one of only a handful to have looked at the presence of drugs in landfills.

Concerns have grown in recent years over pharmaceuticals reaching drinking water supplies. An Associated Press investigation in 2008 reported that the drinking water of at least 51 million Americans contains minute concentrations of a multitude of drugs.

It's commonly believed that the vast majority of drugs that get into water supplies come from human and animal excretion and that smaller amounts come from flushing them down the toilet or drain, a practice the Food and Drug Administration says is not recommended for most medications.

Pharmaceuticals are being detected regularly in our waterways

smart disposal

[Excerpt] Pharmaceuticals are being detected regularly in our nation’s waterways and with this comes rising concern about potential long-term adverse effects to both humans and aquatic organisms from continuous environmental exposure. The main source of pharmaceutical loading into our waterways is via municipal sewage systems, with current wastewater treatment plants unable to remove the majority of these compounds. Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) – a major pollution source in the Black Warrior River watershed – are also a significant source of pharmaceutical contamination in waterways. At the individual level, proper disposal of medicines and personal care products is the beginning of a long-term solution to this critical issue.
