Drugs on tap

March 10th, 2008 · No Comments · News

Just one more reason I’m sticking to soda and beer:

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(…) “We recognize it is a growing concern and we’re taking it very seriously,” said Benjamin H. Grumbles, assistant administrator for water at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

This doesn’t really concern me that much, since I already know that water is polluted in a variety of subtle ways. What I admire is a man with a name of “Benjamin H. Grumbles” knew that his calling was to be in a Federal regulatory agency.

When Mr. Grumbles calls, you know there’s going to be problems. He’s never happy.

Water from the tap, now fortified!The good news is I hear the EPA is going to pass this on to the FDA, and it’s going to be reclassified as a free national health benefit. Feeling depressed, got a headache, or a nagging infection? No need to bother with a doctor’s visit or a trip to the pharmacy. Just head on over to the tap for a tall glass of pre-medicated water.
