Drug Pollution Becomes Addictive for Fish

In the News

The fish are not only being affected by prescription drugs like prozac and birthcontrol medicines but also recreational drugs like cocaine , and thats besides other pollutants like oil, pesticides and fertilizers

All this is not only harming the fish and making them addicted, but this gets passed onto humans through the food chain, and goes a long way in explaining the changes in our health and behaviour

Yes H, they are coming directly in contact with these pollutants that are being flushed into rivers and seas , in the article it says the fish now swim towards sewer drains to get the hit they are getting addicted to

We then eat the fish

It could help to explain how in recent years we have changed in manner and nature , infertility is becoming a big problem and in other countries there is a big increase in deformities

Thats besides the allergies that are affecting our children

Fish have definitely been getting a raw deal for some time. This, other pollutants, microplastic particles, high levels of heavy metal contamination in certain types of fish, overfishing, etc. Last year, Robbie Williams and Victoria Beckham were both reported to have had dangerously high level of mercury in their system from eating too much fish.
