It’s time for another medical update. The blog and even the internet are not large enough to contain all the warnings. In short, the air we breath, the food we eat and the water we drink are not safe. I have wondered why I have felt more calm and drowsy for the past several months. I have also been pretty free of infections. This week I found out the reason. Our water is contaminated with the millions of drugs people take. The drugs go through the body into the toilet and into our water supply. The water is full of minute quantities of tranquilizers, antibiotics, painkillers and just about everything else. I get my daily doses of all this stuff through the water I drink so I guess that’s the reason I have been more calm and free of infections. I have never been one to drink the usual recommended 8 glasses of water a day and now I’m glad. If I drank that much water I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed.
One of the sad things about the contaminated water is, that all the fish are being affected. The hormones are turning male fish into females and females into males. There are also a lot more homosexual fish. The reproductive process has also been greatly affected because of the low sperm count in the male fish. Fewer fish are being born. We may be threatened with the extinction of fish.
None of the water is safe. Even bottled water, that cost more than gasoline, is contaminated. It comes from the same source as all the other water we drink and is filled with the things humans and other animals excrete. Well, that’s it for the health nuts who carry their bottled water around while jogging. I don’t know what they are going to do.
There are many other things on the medical danger list. For the vitamin enthusiasts, there is also a problem. Vitamin E has recently been found to do no good for anything and those who take it have an increased risk for developing lung cancer. I suspect that all vitamins will eventually be removed from the shelves. Adult cold remedies may also go the way of those for children. When all this happens the pharmaceutical industry will charge even more for prescription drugs.
If China wasn’t doing enough to kill us with lead based paint on our toys, they have now added an ingredient to the common blood thinner, heparin, that produces allergic reactions. Keep it up China; you may soon eradicate the Americans without firing a shot.
Last week we found out that women who have taken hormones in the past to keep their bones from rotting away have a higher incidence of breast and other cancers. If we have any of the hormones remaining in the medicine cabinet we should go ahead and flush them down the toilet so we can hasten the demise of the fish.
I can’t stand to say any more, it’s too scary. The interesting thing about the drug problem is that it’s all George Bush’s fault. He should have instituted a policy that forbids us from urinating in the toilet and flushing the contents into our water supply. The frightening thing for me is that it’s not even safe on the porch.
