Prozac in Britain's Water Supply

Via A Welsh View, some slightly distrubing news from The Observer,

It should make us happy, but environmentalists are deeply alarmed: Prozac, the anti-depression drug, is being taken in such large quantities that it can now be found in Britain's drinking water.

Environmentalists are calling for an urgent investigation into the revelations, describing the build-up of the antidepressant as 'hidden mass medication'. The Environment Agency has revealed that Prozac is building up both in river systems and groundwater used for drinking supplies. notes,
the thing is, even if there are massive public health problems caused, most people will be cool with it....
