Drug Cocktails, Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper and Snack Time Too

What would you do if you knew a company or a person was in your yard pouring a number of hormones, psychiatric medications, antibiotics, steroids, and other prescription medications into your water pipes? According to new research that is pretty close to what is happening world wide in developed countries.

So, we are packing steroids into our bodies and wonder why we have a difficult time controlling weight? Autism has increased tremendously, but pregnant moms and their children are drinking drug cocktails daily and we wonder why autism has increased? Uh, don't they send athletes to prison for taking steroids and "performance enhancing" drugs? Well, now its nice to know they don't have to have shots - they can just drink tap water. Then who do you prosecute?

Your child is ADD/ADHD? What is in your drinking water? The biggest insult of all, is that most treatment plants don't think we have the right to know about the pharmaceuticals in our water. Huh? Who is paying for that water coming through our tap? If we don't pay, watch where the water goes.

So we have a world where kids drink urine and feces contaminated water out of muddy puddles and streams. Then we have a world where kids drink a cocktail of drugs out of their taps. And we wonder why, with all the medical knowledge we have, we are feeling worse and worse in our minds and bodies? Hmmmm.

Now here's the response from the establishment - the deformed drug ridden fish that are being tested - well, the fish are probably just super sensitive to the drug cocktails in the rivers, lakes, ponds, and streams. Humans - oh heck, uh, don't we have some kind of magic filter that filters these things out of our body? Not that I know of.

Thank you AP - for blowing the secrecy surrounding this one!

I heard about this on CNN this morning. To be honest, I'm not surprised. They've been putting fluoride in our water for years, why not other chemicals. It's an easy and cheap way to keep the citizenry passive and hooked on buying the overly processed foods, as well as all the diet books, and other "solutions". NOt that I'm a huge conspiracy theorist or some sort of fruitcake but I think that if people knew more about what governments and big business (they often go hand in hand or are one and the same) were really up, they'd be shocked and horrified. Good post!

This made the news a few years ago up here when they began finding fish with both male and female sex organs due to birth control pill hormones seeping into the water system via the pill-taker's pee. So, I was not surprised in the least this morning when I saw this on the news. It's terrible. I always make sure I take any extra or left over medications back to the pharmacy where they properly dispose of them with an incinerator.

Oh dear...isn't this frightening. Even the salt we sprinkle on streets for melting ice and snow gets into the ground...killing plants or washes back into lakes. I've heard it said we are salting the planet to death...

Add drugs in drinking water to a lot of the processed foods and carbohydrate rich diets children eat...and no surprise we see rise in ADHD.

Coyote - this is awful - I hadn't heard of this before - always blamed the "chemicals," etc. for such deformities. Candy, we are abusing our planet to death aren't we, then ultimately ourselves.

Karen, after what I heard on the news today about NSA - some part of our government monitoring ordinary citizens' internet, cell phone, and other communications, nothing would surprise me.

WC told me that you had posted on this water situation as I posted on the same thing today. (Great minds and all that. ;)

Isn't it just atrocious! Shocked me as I hadn't heard of this before.

From the article is this: "Another issue: There's evidence that adding chlorine, a common process in conventional drinking water treatment plants, makes some pharmaceuticals more toxic."

This is horrifying as well. I think Karen is right. If people only knew...

Glad you posted on this, too, Gardenia!

I knew there was a reason why I dont like tap water.. I was told by Kora's dentist if I wasnt going to have her teeth done with Flouride at the office to have her drink water. It will strengthen her teeth.

I too saw this on the news and I was simply stunned! Fortunately I live very close to a natural spring that comes out of a mountain. This is where I get my drinking water from. Maybe you should start coming to visit me and get your water from there. :-)

My home water is piped in from a special tank because of the train derailment here a number of years ago that dumped diazopene and contaminated the water for a mile radius. So I am good there as far as trusting it for watering the garden and bathing. The military has to bring it in for the next 100
years even though the legal levels of our soil and water are now in check. The spill happened in 1965 and was not deemed safe until the 80's.

Ya think - I'll bring some jugs.
