For the earth and the people – Letters To The Editor

Edwina Nelson

“How Drugs Are Polluting Our Water” (September 2001) was a real eye-opener. I once believed the safest way to get rid of unwanted prescription drugs was to flush them down the toilet. But I found out that home care nurses give these drugs to people in underdeveloped countries. If you have drugs you don’t need, check with a home health care group; it should know if a drug-recycling program is available in your area.
