Surely, though, the detected quantities are far too small to have any effect on the public. Maybe not - "scant amounts may exert powerful effects
". Also: "What makes pharmaceutical pollution so worrisome
is that the usual safeguards that protect us from bacteria and toxins, fail to rid sewage of these chemicals."More
