… After all…

A five-month investigation by The Associated Press found low levels of pharmaceutical drugs — including antibiotics, mood stabilizers and sex hormones — in the drinking water of at least 41 million Americans.

The AP’s investigative team found traces of drugs in 24 of the 62 major metropolitan water systems it checked.

Have a glass of water in Philadelphia, for example, and you’re drinking tiny amounts of at least 56 pharmaceuticals or their byproducts.

Lake Meade, which is about 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas, supplies drinking water for Nevada, Arizona and California, and testing found trace levels of birth control, steroids, narcotics and other drugs in that water supply.

Tempted to suggest that the Conspiracy Theorists are right about this one, except here it is more like the Paranoid Schizophrenics, who are — after all — more a-tuned to some things than the rest of the population on some matters… after all.

Benjamin Grumbles, the EPA’s assistant administrator for water, recognizes that the pollution is “a growing concern and we’re taking it very seriously,” but overall there’s no reason to stop drinking water—not that you really have a choice.

That’s exactly how it works, right?  Captive audience, into the Essentials of life.  Just … like… them.
