AP IMPACT: Tons of released drugs taint US water
That would explain some of the posts here.
Many areas use to fluoridate their water, and some still do. Wouldn't put it past them to add other stuff as well.
Let me toss this one out:
If you watched the video, it spoke about some male fish in Colorado that had been turning female, and this was traced back to estrogen in the water (Birth control pills).
Could it be that the feminization of western civilization is related to the introduction and use of birth control pills starting in the 50s?
Of course this is highly speculative and probably not true, the concentrations of the drugs are really low. But biological protiens are very powerful, and if it can change fish from male to female, what can it do to humans at the same dose?
Can it change the brain structure of a fetus such that a male fetus desires to mate with males instead of females?
This is a scary pandoras' box we have opened, all so that we could have a good time and not be "burdened" with children.
my water supply comes from a deep well, with a very good filter but I suppose well water can become contaminated also.
I would be all for Xanax in my water!
now now luissa, call me if that happens....well water is normally easily contaiminated...all pollutants filter downwards into the water table...your well water is not just coming from your land....we dont have a well due to the pollluntants from the christmas tree growers...they will not admit this but avery county has odd "cancer clusters"..when my son did that damned science project in middle school...i suggested he go around and test the streams near the large farms...hubby vetoed that right off the bat...
we have spring water...and we even filter that....
i dont trust city water at all..but most bottled waters are simply out of a tap
Actually, that's the safest way to do it. In the city they excessively chlorinate the water, have to boil it anyway to get more of the chlorine out or it tastes like pool water, and even then it doesn't taste quite right.
