How can vitamins be bad for the environment?

    Vitamins can be harmful in the sense that they may contain animal products. For example, many vitamins contain gelatin in order to bind everything together into a pill form, and this gelatin is make from pork or beef fat. Another example is vitamin D3, which is derived from lanolin, or sheep’s wool.

    If vitamins and pharmaceuticals are flushed down the toilet, which is an unfortunately common practice, they can potentially affect the health of marine life or enter the water supply. This is because waste-water treatment plants are not equipped to effectively remove medicine, vitamins and other supplements from waste water.
