Only half of drugs, other newly emerging contaminants removed from sewage — Environmental Health News | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

Only about half of the prescription drugs and other newly emerging contaminants in sewage are removed by treatment plants.

 

That’s the finding of a new report by the International Joint Commission, a consortium of officials from the United States and Canada who study the Great Lakes.

 

The impact of most of these “chemicals of emerging concern” on the health of people and aquatic life remains unclear. Nevertheless, the commission report concludes that better water treatment is needed.

Coloradans urge lawmakers to curb dangerous beef-industry antibiotics use | The Colorado Independent

Coloradans urge lawmakers to curb dangerous beef-industry antibiotics use | The Colorado Independent | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

A lot rides on a stressed-out cow.

 

They aren’t happy, and they don’t make for good eating because they’re more susceptible to illness. Yet a lot of cows are stressed in America. They’re shuttled around and crowded onto the massive feedlots where so many of them live out their short lives, breathing, eating and drinking in the same crowded space where they leave their waste.

 

That’s partly why so many lots dose cattle with a steady stream of disease-fighting antibiotics — a practice that is becoming a major human health concern. Researchers are finding that the antibiotics and the super bugs that can survive them are present in the meat we eat.
