Drinking water contaminated by excreted drugs a growing concern

An online article release by the CBC News on September 22 addresses the growing concern of excreted drugs showing up in our ecosystems and drinking water. Experts debate on the potential risk of the concentrations and drug “cocktails” will have on humans after long term consuption. The most common logical leap, however, is the effect on human cancer rates. Links have already been made between the amount of estrogen form excreted birth control and colon cancer rates. At this time, the focus seems to be on the effects of these excreted drugs on aquatic wildlife having already seen stange occurrences such as “intersex” fish.

Understanding Your Water Quality

pH:

pH is a measure of how acidic/basic water is. The range goes from 0 – 14, with 7 being neutral. pHs of less than 7 indicate acidity, whereas a pH of greater than 7 indicates a base. pH is really a measure of the relative amount of free hydrogen and hydroxyl ions in the water. Water that has more free hydrogen ions is acidic, whereas water that has more free hydroxyl ions is basic. Since pH can be affected by chemicals in the water, pH is an important indicator of water that is changing chemically. pH is reported in ‘logarithmic units,’ like the Richter scale, which measures earthquakes. Each number represents a 10-fold change in the acidity/basicness of the water. Water with a pH of 5 is ten times more acidic than water having a pH of six.
