this is soooo scary!

i have to wonder if the pharmacuticals become inert/evaporate/degrade when we filter our own water, or bake and/or boil it?

how can we test our own water for pharmacuticals?

Illinois water to be screened
Governor reacts as testing reveals pharmaceuticals

The governor of Illinois ordered screening of the state’s waterways for pharmaceuticals Wednesday in reaction to an Associated Press investigation into the presence of trace amounts of medicines in U.S. drinking water.

The announcement by Gov. Rod Blagojevich came as the New York City Council scheduled an emergency committee hearing and as water providers across the nation assured residents that their water is safe to drink.

Blagojevich said he had ordered the state’s environmental agency to begin screening waterways for pharmaceuticals and to promote safer disposal of medicines. The governor also announced that the state will partner with Chicago officials to test that city’s drinking water.

The AP series reported that Chicago was one of the largest U.S. cities that does not test its drinking water.

Blagojevich also directed state health officials to further assess the effects of any pharmaceutical contamination on human health.

In New York City, where the AP reported that trace concentrations of heart medicine, infection fighters, estrogen, anti-convulsants, a mood stabilizer and a tranquilizer have been detected in the upstate source of the city’s water, the City Council has scheduled an emergency public hearing for April 3. The AP reported that despite the test results, the city does not test its downstate drinking water.

YeshaYahu 9:12-18
12 Who is the wise man, that he understands this? And to whom has the mouth of Yahuah spoken, that he declares it? Why has the land perished, has it been burned up like a wilderness, with none passing through? 13 And Yahuah says, [b]“Because they have forsaken My Torah which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, 14 but they have walked according to the stubbornness of their own heart and after the Ba'als, which their fathers had taught them.â€
