Medicine and Health

We take medicine to help make us healthier and feel better, but the mass production of all these drugs is contaminating our drinking water and waterways.

What is bewildering to me is that we have this amazing grasp on the existence of germs even though we cannot see them. But when it comes to harmful chemicals in our drinking water, food and home, we often seem completely dumbfounded that they are there. Why is there this gap between understanding “unseen” germs and acknowledging the existence of “unseen” chemicals?
