Don't Flush Old Prescription Drugs
Don’t Flush Old Prescription Drugs http://lighterfootstep.com/2008/12/dont-flush-old-prescription-drugs/
For years, we were advised to flush unused or expired prescription drugs. Unfortunately, most municipal water systems are unequipped to remove medications from treated water. Now scientists are increasingly concerned about the low levels of drugs turning up in watershed and marine life. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of great disposal options. Read before you flush. The U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy has published revised guidelines on safer prescription disposal. When in doubt, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
