Pharmaceuticals in the water??

Just heard an interesting article on npr about the levels of drugs in our water and the effects on fish. It stated that fish exposed to anti-anxiety meds tended to be less fearful and also ate more. Go figure haha. Anyone else have anything to add to this? I guess people are flushing enough meds to actually have an impact on aquatic eco-systems..

I have heard of that too. I have also heard that women on birth control pee it out into the water and the fish have a hard time reproducing. Go figure!
