Drinking Water Filter

A study, published in the Aquatic Toxicology journal (September 2010) confirms our worst fears: pharmaceuticals in our water are not just affecting the sex life of fish but the sex life of humans, too.

The findings show that Prozac and drugs like it are a real environmental danger to fish breeding levels in the wild. When researchers exposed male goldfish to water treated with the popular antidepressant drug Prozac, guess what happened? They produced up to 50 per cent less sperm. They also responded less to pheromones the female fish release to attract males.

Because existing sewage plants are not designed to eliminate trace elements of any drugs from the water supply, humans and the quality of their sex lives are at risk, too. Low levels of unprocessed Prozac are produced and enter the sewage cycle when a person urinates. Even if the drugs do degrade somewhat over time, more gets added to the mix every time we flush.

Is Membrane Water Treatment Systems any wonder that our culture is so obsessed with and dependent upon sex-enhancement drugs like Viagra? We needed something to fight the effect of drugs in our water, didn't we? How ironic that we chose to ingest yet another drug to combat its debilitating effects!

There are more sane and practical solutions, people! To begin with, we could take a zero-tolerance stance on pharmaceutical pollution in water supplies. Not possible, you say? Membrane Water Treatment Systems in Europe have already done so along with the installation of the extra-fine micron filtration equipment required to filter drugs out of sewage. The micro-filter technology is also available for domestic use in certain drinking water filters. Note: an absolute pore size of 0.1 microns or less is mandatory to remove residual pharmaceuticals effectively.
