An active glas of water

An article well worth noticing: "Rising tide of drugs, medicines polluting EU waters" published today in EurActiv. EFPIA there says that: “it is certainly appropriate to evaluate the potential environmental risks posed by medicinal products prior to their authorization".

Personally I´m no chemist so I’m not sure how the lifecycle of a drug looks like but it seems like a given one that we look into how active ingredients are being transmitted into our water.
