Man-made pharmaceutical drugs and chemicals are making their way into our drinking water at unprecedented levels. What’s happening exactly and what can we do about it? Carrie Jennings, a field geologist who works with Freshwater, a leading public nonprofit dedicated to preserving freshwater resources and their surrounding watersheds, answers these questions and more.
Today, Carrie explains how antibiotic use on farms, and residue from anti-inflammatories, antidepressants, and other pharmaceutical drugs end up contaminating our waters. She goes over the worst toxins, dubbed “forever chemicals,” and tells us how to avoid them when making purchases. And she offers suggestions for what each of us can do to protect the quality of our water for our own health and the sake of everyone in our local community.
