AS I am a member of the Couple to Couple League I get their magazine 'Family Communications'. It's published in the USA. Ages ago they did an article about how chemical contraceptives were putting oestrogen's into the water and this was effecting the fish.
Last night I noted that the issue has come up again. Antonia has noted that even more research is coming up with the problems of contraceptives in the water. Trout are changing sex and you would think that environmentalists would be up in arms about this. But there is a strange silence.
It will never cease to amaze me that a woman's dubious right to wreck her body by taking in synthetic hormones to damage her reproductive ability is so sacrosanct that it cannot be questioned no matter what damage is being done.
The effects on the rest of us having to drink this stuff is unknown, but if it's damaging fish it wont be doing us any favours.
We know that both male and female infertility is rising rapidly. We see increases in breast, cervical and ovarian cancers.
It's time to challenge this damage to our drinking water.
