New Healthcare Plan: Just Drink the Water

Posted by Trish Riley, April 24, 2009

The Associated Press released a follow-up to its ground-breaking report last fall about pharmaceuticals in public water supplies – in addition to emissions from human waste, the water is inundated with drugs released by manufacturers of drugs and other chemical products. Many of these compounds are not filtered out at waste treatment plants. I’ve been advised by scientists that a combination of a carbon-activated filter followed by a reverse osmosis system will help to clean *some* substances from our water. I’d sure like to know exactly what is in my drinking water!

AP IMPACT: Tons of released drugs taint US water.
