Scientists have found a drinking water supply in India that has antibiotics in it..stronger than a therapeutic dose!
And who did it?
“Enormous quantities of antibiotics are released into wastewater from drug factories that manufacture the bulk of the world’s pharmaceutical antibiotics. The compounds contaminated nearby surface and ground water, exposing people and aquatic wildlife to the drugs.These levels of contamination are alarming for two reasons. First, they may adversely affect human health following exposure to contaminated water. The health effects of ongoing exposure to high concentrations of mixtures of pharmaceutical mixtures are largely unknown. This is especially true for a developing fetus, baby or child.Second, they generate conditions that may foster development of antibiotic resistant strains of pathogens.The authors conclude that “insufficient wastewater management in one of the world’s largest centers for bulk drug production leads to unprecedented drug contamination of surface, ground, and drinking water.”
“They suggest that improved wastewater treatment could reduce contamination levels.”
