Prozac Residues in Fish


“Prozac Residues in Fish” Not to worry, though— our fish may have Benadryl in it. Because so many drugs
are excreted in our urine, when we pee them down the toilet, they can end up polluting
our rivers and streams, and the flesh of the
fish swimming in them. In fish fillets, they found Benadryl,
Cardizem, Tegretol, Lopid, Zoloft, and Prozac metabolites. The levels they found were really low, but what if these compounds
bioaccumulate in tissue, or have unintended consequences
from the complex mixtures of contaminants we’re exposed to?
