Big Pharma isn't just poisoning your body—they're also poisoning the world's rivers

The Hill: The same people presently turning record profits enlarging children's hearts and causing a massive spike in miscarriages—the organizations that have been sued more than any other in the world for their past malfeasance and negligence—are also polluting waterways on all five continents—doing so at potentially toxic concentrations in more than a quarter of 258 global rivers sampled in a new, multi-institutional study.


'Sites with the most contamination were located in low- to middle-income countries in areas with poor waste management infrastructure and robust pharmaceutical manufacturing, according to the study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Scientists found the highest cumulative concentrations — for the 61 pharmaceuticals surveyed — in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and South America.'
