Unchecked use of antibiotics poses significant threat to freshwater ecosystem 15.11.2019
Washington: Residues from billions of doses of antibiotics, painkillers and antidepressants pose a significant risk to freshwater ecosystems and the global food chain, a new analysis said Thursday. There are growing fears that the unchecked use of antibiotics in both medicine and agriculture will have adverse effects on the environment and on human health. When animals and humans ingest medicines, up to 90 per cent of active ingredients are excreted back into the environment. Many medicines are simply discarded -- in the United States alone an estimated one-third of the four billion drugs prescribed each year end up as waste. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) compared data on concentrations of pharmaceutical residue in water samples worldwide as well as prescribing trends and water purification regulations in various countries. One study cited in its report estimates that 10 per cent of all pharmaceuticals are potentially harmful to the environment – including ...

Hyderabad: The government"s proposal to scrap Government Order 111, which creates a 10-km pollution-free zone around the Osmansagar and Himayatsagar, has resulted in rampant encroachment of the channels that bring water to the two reservoirs.
