Boffins unhappy over Prozac fish
THE huge amounts of happy pills being gulped down by North Americans has led to high levels of anti- depressants being found in the brains of FISH!
Researchers discovered high concentrations of human antidepressants in fish found in the Niagara River of Canada.
A study published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology found the pharmaceutical drugs in the brain tissue of 10 species, including bass and walleye .
The discovery raise serious environmental concerns since the Niagara River connects two of the Great Lakes, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario between Canada and the United States
Researchers say the anti- depressant build- up could affect fish behaviour – though boffins do not know if the fish are less depressed.
