A team of scientists, led by researchers led at the University of Monas, researched insects and insects discovered in six streams in this city and discovered as many as 98 per cent of different types of pharmaceutical products.
Scientists have found 69 different types of insect medications and 66 in spiders. Scientists have explained that medicines are transferred by a food chain. Insects feed insects, and they feed into strange blood strings, writes Guardian.
The medications flow to the streams through wastewater treatment plants that can not remove all the harmful substances used by humans. Some come through septic tanks or sewage and sewage pipes.
Water from the stream and stream around Melbourne, even from those with very little waste, included "the entire drug cocktail," said researchers, not hiding they are unfortunately surprised.
Here is the first study in the world that suggests that there are a number of pharmaceutical substances in the food chain and that some animals can be exposed to half the daily dose of a prescribed anti-depressant drug for people, says & Erin Richmond's study manager.
– The study has shown that many traceable drugs can be stored in invertebrate water bodies, but also in watercourses from where they are thrown into the terrestrial areas of their / surrounding area. Spiders, birds, bats are eaten here. – Richmond explained.
The results of a study by scientists at Monash University in Melbourne have been published in the Nature Communications magazine.
