What kinds of chemicals from medicine will we find in our water?

    Virtually all pharmaceuticals are finding a way into our water. A study done in 1999/2000 found 95 contaminants including antibiotics, prescription and non-prescription drugs, steroids,  and hormones. A lot of hormones and antibiotics are coming from cow pastures where cows are raised for slaughter. They are fed a lot of drugs to keep them healthy, their manure is then spread on the fields for fertilizer and the drugs leach into the water system.
