The Associated Press: AP Probe Finds Drugs in Drinking Water

The Associated Press: AP Probe Finds Drugs in Drinking Water

I think I'd find this less scary if it was cocaine in the water supply than the crazy combination of stuff they have found.

Officials in Philadelphia said testing there discovered 56 pharmaceuticals
or byproducts in treated drinking water, including medicines for pain,
infection, high cholesterol, asthma, epilepsy, mental illness and heart
problems. Sixty-three pharmaceuticals or byproducts were found in the city's
watersheds.

And I know it's tiny tiny amounts of it, but still it makes you wonder.
