Drugs in the water are chemicals in the water and some of the most dangerous chemicals we make are medicines, drugs, and pharmaceuticals. Gene altering drugs are causing childhood diseases such as autism.

• Steroids, hormones, prostaglandins, and
chemotherapeutics are examples of drugs typically
classified as potent. Of these, new cancer drugs are
generating the most interest. In fact, 750 cancer
therapies are in development, according to a new
survey by the industry group Pharmaceutical
Research & Manufacturers of America. They include
targeted drugs, potent chemotherapies, and highly
potent cell-killing or cytotoxic agents conjugated to
• Oncology is already one of the largest drug product
sectors, accounting today for about $48 billion in
global sales, reports the market research firm IMS
Health. The sector is growing 12–15% per year, or
more than twice as fast as the overall
pharmaceutical market. That's why custom
chemical suppliers that can manufacture potent
compounds for drug industry customers occupy an
attractive niche. And those with conjugation
expertise sit in an even more appealing niche
within the high-potency area (see page 28).

The Same Chemo Drugs That Save Some Cancer Patients'
Lives Put Health Workers at Risk
By Jim Morris
Special to the Washington Post
“Last March, the federal government issued an unusually detailed
alert to the nation's 5.5 million health care workers: The powerful
drugs used in chemotherapy can themselves cause cancer and pose
a risk to nurses, pharmacists and others who handle them.”
OSHA and NIOSH
• One study in 1985 found nurses who worked on
the Oncology floor of a hospital had a
miscarriage rate almost five times the norm.
• Hospitals have been collecting the RCRA Waste.
Need to collect the Pharmaceutical Waste.
• At minimum, the OSHA regulated and the
NIOSH regulated drugs.
Who besides us says so?

prevalence of pharmaceuticals in the drinking
water has jump-started Federal, State, Local

• A report published by a science correspondent for The Telegraph
(U.K) states: quot;The observed concentrations of pharmaceuticals in

• The drugs break into the bloodstream and

that is not heritable.
• Autism Affects One in 150 children in the US,
one in 97 in NJ and one in 60 in northern NJ
• Northern NJ also has the highest concentration
of Pharmaceuticals in the world.
• 3 out of 4 are Male that means 1% of US males
born are affected.
• Some say it is better diagnosis, that would mean
1% of 40 year old men would have it
