Did you know that more than 131 million Americans, or 66% of adults, take some form of the prescription drug every day? On average, those who use prescriptions take 4 pills, which doesn’t account for over-the-counter meds, vitamins, & other dietary supplements. According to the Quintile IMS, from 1997 to 2016, the number of prescriptions filled for American adults and children rose 85% from 2.4 billion to 4.5 billion a year.
So, should it be a surprise that scientists are finding remnants of pharmaceuticals in our tap water? The first discovery was back in 1999 when two chemists, Christian Daughton with the Environmental Protection Agency & Thomas Ternes with Germany’s ESWE-Institute for Water Research, published a report that revealed pharmaceuticals are present in our water cycle.
Even now, The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has confirmed that more unregulated pharmaceutical products (PPCPs) have been found in our nation’s water supply and at least 41 million Americans receive water that has tested positive for:
- Mood stabilizers
- Contraceptives and other synthetic hormones
- Blood thinners
- Heart medication
