Discovery: What’s in Your Water? Pharmaceuticals are entering our water supplies and already plants and animals are feeling the effects. Professor Andrea Sella takes a look at how much is entering our drinking water and whether we should be worried.
She finds out which of our flora and fauna are already being affected by drugs and asks if our water treatment techniques are good enough to cope with the task of removing harmful pharmaceuticals.
Could the drugs are taken by other people actually be having an effect on our own bodies?
