Thanks for pointing this out, Barb. Furthermore, who knows what happens when all the chemicals in our waters interact?

If these ALIEN chemicals can pollute our waters, imagine what they have done to our bodies.

Billions of dollars for Synthetic symptom relief for the Synthetic illnesses we manufactured and sold.
Synthetic sugar, Synthetic butter, Thalidimide, Cyclamate, HRT, Avandia, Fenphen, Resulin, Acutane, Baycol, Primrose, Reglan, Procrid, Zyprexa, Neurontin, Vioxx, Seravin, Lindane, Redox, Ortho Ethra, Zetia, Zocor, Vytorin, Aspertaine, Chantix, Fentinayl-Duragesic patches... etc..etc...

Not to mention the PCB's, DDT and PBA that the whistle blowers mention from time to time.
Can the earth save itself from our greed to sell BOTH the poisons and the Antidote ?
Do the Trees and Creatures carry Master card?
Can they seek, and hope to buy, cures for what we've done to them?
Do the peddlers of snake oil care ?

Thanks. I found this interesting. From all of the news, research, and information we receive, my thoughts leaned more toward the prescriptions poured into our water is not all gotten rid of, and has the potential to harm our health. Maybe that also depends on where you live, where your water comes from, how they treat it at the treatment plants and so forth. Definitely is a subject I would like to do more research about.

They release chemicals from planes too, the powers that be think nothing of ordinary people, its all about power. And they are helping to destroy our planet in more ways than one. I for one feel sorry for them when they pass over to the other side. They have a lot to answer for.

I FIND THIS TO BE AN OVERWHELMING NUMBER OF DRUGS PUT IN THE WATERWAYS, NO WONDER WHY SOME FROGS HAVE 5 LEGS AND TURLES SOMETIMES HAVE 2 HEADS??
THEY TELL US NEVER TO PUT DRUGS, EVEN OVER THE COUNTER ONES, DOWN THE TOILET AND TO DISPOSE OF THEM PROPERLY!!!
WHERE IS THEIR COUNTERBILITY???
IT IS HARD TO EVEN PICTURE A MILLION POUNDS BUT OVER 200 MILLION POUNDS OF DRUGS BEING RELEASED THIS WAY--FOR SURE AN EFFECT IS HAPPENING SOMEWHERE??
THANKS FOR POSTING, AND EVERYONE AT CARE2 HAVE A WONDROUS DAY!.:).

Our government...acted suprised when it came out that there was such a high level of chemicals in our waterways and ground and that it was dangerous.
These drug companies are still supported by the government, they are not vioating the law, there is no accountability! :(

Water is the most basic necessity for human survival and for any govt to allow the contamination is irreposible,negligent and criminal.People everywhere should protest with their power of their taxes and voices to expose this lack of accountability to the lawmakers and public officials.

This makes me wonder-many mental conditions have jumped considerably-like autism-could this be a contributor. Oh, and before I forget-did you know that mercury is good for you? Thank you very much-Barb.
