We Are All On Drugs!

Whether you are a pharmaceutical pill popper or not, you still are taking Big Pharma's Drugs by just being thirsty and drinking a glass of water. Gives new meaning to the 17th-century English poet John Donne, who penned the words below:

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

Just think, every human body, that is ingesting the Doctor ordered drugs and eliminating some of these substances because the body is incapable of digesting all of the noxious ingredients. Therefore, sharing these prescribed poisons unwittingly, with the rest of us with one trip to the bathroom. YIKES! thinkingblue

AP probe finds drugs in drinking water

A vast array of pharmaceuticals — including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones — have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans, an Associated Press investigation shows.

the concentrations of these pharmaceuticals are tiny,
presence of so many prescription drugs — and over-the-counter medicines like
acetaminophen and ibuprofen — in so much of our drinking water is heightening
worries among scientists of long-term consequences to human health.
AP discovered that drugs have been detected in the drinking water supplies of 24
major metropolitan areas — from Southern California
to Northern New Jersey, from Detroit
to Louisville, Ky.

How do the drugs get into the water?

People take pills.
Their bodies absorb some of the medication
rest of it passes through and is flushed down the toilet.
researchers do not yet understand the exact risks
which have gone virtually unnoticed
human cells
