I think this topic has been brought up on the list before, but I
thought you all might be interested.

It seems that some places are using treated sewage to water crops or
even to drink and that the treatments don't remove the medications
that we take.

The article is very brief, but it mentions the concern for the effect
on plants and people, but doesn't mention that we have been dumping
these chemicals into rivers for a long time and that there might be
effects on aquatic life.
