"Aquatic life is bathing in a soup of antidepressants," says marine biologist

Recommended Posts

Antidepressants are destroying underwater ecosystems, which we in turn eat.

 

  • A new British study has discovered that "our aquatic life is bathing in a soup of antidepressants."
  • Entire ecosystems are being negatively affected by our pharmaceutical use.
  • The drugs re-enter our bodies when we consume seafood from these areas.

 

"Our aquatic life is bathing in a soup of antidepressants. Antidepressant and antianxiety medications are found everywhere, in sewage, surface water, ground water, drinking water, soil, and accumulating in wildlife tissues. They are found in sea water and rivers and their potential ability to disrupt the normal biological systems of aquatic organisms is extensive. "

 

Holy Shmoly !

so sad, we are terrible for our environment.

over fishing, over producing, over consuming, single use plastic... 75% of our food production goes to waste in the US, but yet 1 on 4 children in my state don't have enough to eat.

when there is a suspicion on a food, there are millions tons of recall. look at all the suffering with industrial farming so that we can have our burger at 2am in the morning.... jeez...
