Big Pharma is contaminating nearly all the water in America with toxic drugs that alter biology, fertility and even gender expression


For some of the uber-rich elite, Big Pharma has been their meal ticket to a life of extravagant wealth. For the rest of us, though, what are the consequences?



As Scientific American reports, trace pharmaceuticals have now contaminated the drinking water of more than 40 million Americans. 



The shocking finding is the result of a 2013 and 2014 study conducted by Dr Sylvia Lee and her team from The Cary Institute of Ecosystems Studies, out of Milford, New York. Lee and her team concentrated on water samples from six different streams in the Baltimore, Maryland area - and found 14 different drugs in the samples collected. Amphetamines and methamphetamine were discovered at all six sites, even.

Her team then decided to study what effects such drugs could have on aquatic life. Their findings? Aquatic insects reproduced like “they were on speed.” Additionally, the diversity of diatoms and certain bacteria, so essential for aquatic life, were greatly diminished.

Worse yet, these prescription drugs can have untold effects on us, even when consumed in our drinking water - these pharmaceuticals can change biology, fertility, and gender.

When these medications enter our waterways the chemicals and compounds contained in them do not break down easily. Fish and amphibians absorb these chemicals, and often experience “changes in intersex development.” Chemicals from medications have”been found in the brains tissue of fish” who swim in streams and ponds near wastewater plant discharge stations.

Yikes!
