Eco-toxicity: Pharmaceuticals in the Environment

Public domain image

[tweetmeme The European Environment agency has addressed the often overlooked eco-toxicity of pharmaceutical products in the environment in a new publication “Pharmaceuticals in the environment – Results of an EEA workshop.”  In this document, the EEA advocates a life-cycle approach, which means looking at pre‑production issues (including raw materials and energy), secondary manufacturing, and the impact of drugs and their breakdown products when they enter the environment.
