Drink Up, Drug Up, Read Up

I simply love the reaction to the MS Blogger Project which is continuing to reach out over the globe. So many kind folks have reposted the long list of links to bloggers out there who just happen to be touched by MS in one way or another. In fact, I'm still tracking down folks who I initially missed in the round up. So please, if you know of others not included, do let me know. And if you are reluctant to post the entire list, please consider sending folks here to Brass and Ivory to check it out.

Also, just a reminder that submissions for this week's Carnival of MS Bloggers are due tomorrow. Please submit a post (via blogcarnival or email) from your blog of which you are particularly proud, or which you simply want to share, by noon on Tuesday, March 11, 2008.

Now on to the business of this brief post regarding levels of pharmaceuticals found in drinking water. As you may have read, the Associated Press released information regarding investigations into the level of pharmaceuticals found in our drinking water.

Here is a little of what is being said today around the blogosphere:

AP Probe Finds Drugs in Drinking Water - Associated Press Writers
Big Pharma Is in the Water - Sarah Rubenstein of the WSJ Health Blog
Drugs in the Water Supply - Dr. Val Jones of Revolution Health Blog
Until You Get Your Metabolism in Line, We Will Never Have Clean Drinking Water - PharmaFraud Blog
PhRMA Statement on Pharmaceuticals in the Environment - Ken Johnson

Normally, I would never flush drugs down the toilet, but considering that tomorrow will be the fourth of a 5-day IV Solumedrol treatment, I guess I don't really have a choice in the matter. What goes in must come out...


  1. Thank you for sharing these artices, it is very thought provoking. I know I have shed my fair share. Makes me wonder about some auto immune diseases that are on the rise.


  2. Oh, whippersnapper!! I'v been so preoccupied with the 70 day writing challenge tht I missed the Carnival deadline! I had one too Crikey.
