Study Finds Traces of Drugs in Drinking Water in 24 Major U.S. Regions "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."

This "drugs-in-the-water" story gives new meaning to "what goes around, comes around." Free drugs for everyone! See, Hillary? We already have universal health care and it did not cost us a dime. Weren't we always told not to worry about pollutants in the water at parts per million and billion? We were told that it's "too little" to cause any harm to anyone. Oh yeah, what about the hermaphrodite frogs with eight legs and alien antennae?

Of course, the argument for drug toxins being benign at low levels belies the biological FACT that substances in our body at parts per million and billion catalyze hundreds of thousands of actions every second. What do you think hormones and enzymes are, harmless environmental "pollutants" that can do nothing because they appear in such small quantities and concentrations? If life itself is regulated at that level and beyond, it's beyond disingenuous to claim that low level pollutants, of which there are MILLIONS of compounds now floating around at parts per million and billion, can do no harm.

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, do we wait for government to clean up this mess, or do you stop taking the drugs that piss away into the very water your children will be drinking a few days later? Drugs are not essential to life. There are no drug deficiency diseases, but there are plenty of drug PROFICIENCY diseases, now compounded by the re-ingestion of drug residue and metabolites in the water. All these drugs deplete nutrients which are used in a desperate attempt to detoxify the synthetic poisons making the perpetual go-round.

Even if this FDA-approved merry-go-round does not stop, it may be safer to jump off, rather than swirl down the drain with the drugs so beloved by those in Washington, D.C. It's up to you whether you drown with them...
