CNN recently ran a sensational article entitled:

Prescription drugs found in drinking water across U.S.

“(AP) — A vast array of pharmaceuticals — including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones — have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans, an Associated Press investigation shows.”

This article is not cause for alarm, because the contaminants are at very low levels. On the other hand, this subject is one of grave concern.

You swallow a tablet today, somebody else drinks it later …

This tells me that water is very easily contaminated, and difficult to completely purify. it is good to see that the present government in Barbados is taking steps to protect the water supply.
