Kalamazoo study finds Pfizer factory release drug into water supplies.

According to this news release:
In one study, samples taken at two treatment plants down the sewer line from drugmaking factories contained a range of pharmaceuticals -- among them opiates, a barbiturate and a tranquilizer at "much higher detection frequencies and concentrations" than samples taken at other plants, according to preliminary research by the U.S. Geological Survey.

In another study, Environmental Protection Agency researchers tested sewage at a municipal wastewater treatment plant in Kalamazoo, Mich., that serves a major Pfizer Inc. factory. Bruce Merchant, Kalamazoo's public services director, provided data that showed unusually high concentrations of the antibiotic lincomycin entering the plant, a drug the factory was producing around the time samples were collected.
So, now we have a reason for the recent rise in illegitimate children in the State of Michigan. ;-)

What a kill-joy. You don't even state where I can get a bottle of this stuff.

I'd like nothing more than to crack open a bottle of sweet Pfizer water and pour myself a stiff one...
