Drugs in our food supply again??

"Fish caught near wastewater treatment plants serving five major U.S. cities had residues of pharmaceuticals in them, including medicines used to treat high cholesterol, allergies, high blood pressure, bipolar disorder and depression, researchers reported Wednesday."

I believe this issue has already been raised but what's wrong with expecting that the fish we eat be healthy and well adjusted? Happy

The articles which I found were said to be so full of estrogen that the guy fish were being

feminized


I'm not sure how one tells. We've just gotten past jokes about lipstick on pigs but fish wearing eye shadow is something I can't imagine. Happy

That's a novel idea worth considering.

Give the medicines to the fish, poultry, and other meat animals first and then we eat them to get the benefits plus.

They have accumulated heavy metals and PCB's in the fat and flesh. Unfortunately there are unscrupulous people who fish and net at night and then sell to restaurants in Toronto.

I was consulted by my landlady because she knows I used to drive an ambulance, and have lots of hospital experience. Her husband had a Bison Burger, and then developed an allergic reaction. She said "The only allergy he has is to Penecillin." I said "Take him to the Emergency Room now, and if his breathing is affected call an ambulance right now". Apparently Bison which are susceptible to Brucellosis have been treated with Penecillin, and it can be passed along.

Can't trust anything any more,
Rob

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
