Prof Graham Mills – The Fate of Pharmaceutical Residues in the Aquatic Environment

Prof Graham MillsProfessor Graham Mills, Professor of Environmental Chemistry from the Department for Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences at Portsmouth University presented about all of the chemicals that can get into water to pollute it.

A thorough introduction in to all of the possibilities, led to how pharmaceuticals that are passed naturally by humans are having measurable effects on fish and other lifeforms in water.

Very interesting. The most obvious take-away – Do not flush old medicines down the toilet, take them to the chemist to dispose of.
