    We are all aware of how polluted our water sources are becoming, but just how does it affect water wildlife?  A recent story about fish that were hooked on meth posed the question of how our drugs are affecting the waters. There are all kinds of ways that our drugs make their way into water resources, polluting them beyond recognition and affecting the wildlife that lives there. Diana Aga, director of RENEW, said that antidepressants are the worst drugs for aquatic life.  A 2017 tudy examined fish from the Niagara River and found the highest bioaccumulation of antidepressants occurred in the fishes’ brains, followed by their livers, muscles, and gonads. Research has also shown that drugs affect the way that fish behave, throwing off their natural and instinctual behaviors.  Researchers said, “The accumulation of pharmaceuticals in aquatic invertebrates poses a range of potential impacts to the invertebrates themselves and their predators, including altered growth, reproduction, and behavior.” Two decades’ worth of research has shown that there are more than 600 pharmaceutical residues in rivers and streams. deeply...
    Drugs used during fertility treatments to release eggs do not increase the risk of developing breast cancer, a study shows. Researchers from King's College London analysed studies involving 1.8 million women undergoing fertility drug treatments. The women, all of whom had no previous history of breast cancer, were followed up in studies for an average period of 27 years. Researchers found they showed 'no significant increase' in the risk of developing breast cancer compared to those who hadn't taken the drugs. The research is the largest study to date assessing whether commonly used fertility drugs are a cancer risk for women, researchers say.

No significant increase in the risk of breast cancer was found with the use of gonadotropins or clomiphene citrate, alone or in combination, the King's College London team reveal 'Fertility treatment can be an emotional experience,' said study author Dr Yusuf Beebeejaun from King's College London.  'Patients often ask us if taking ovarian stimulating drugs will put them at increased risk of developing cancers, including breast cancer.  'To...
    Puppies as young as one week old were poisoned with drug overdoses and some had their mouths taped shut to prevent them from expelling them. It may sound like a backyard animal cruelty case, but it’s what the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is forcing pharmaceutical companies to do to dogs in order to get approval for new drugs. It has to end. The Disturbing Dog Abuse Details  Our new report “Broken Bureaucracy” chronicles how the FDA makes companies conduct expensive, misleading, and wasteful tests on as many as 20,000 dogs annually—potentially a third of all dogs experimented on in the U.S.—as part of the drug approval process stuck in the 1930s. Our first-of-its-kind analysis reviewed nearly 200 recent drug applications to document in companies’ own words what they did to dogs to get FDA approval. The documents detail how puppies were forced to inhale experimental drugs by having masks strapped to their faces, or made to ingest drugs by having tubes forced down their throats. Many dogs suffered adverse effects like foaming at the mouth, becoming comatose or paralyzed, blindness, convulsions, “beagle pain syndrome,” and more. They “vocalize” and...
    A new report put together by White Coat Waste Project (WCW) documents how FDA red tape is making drug makers complete cruel and unnecessary tests on dogs. 200 drug applications submitted in the past twenty years find what drug makers have to do to dogs to win regulatory approval. The results are harrowing. According to the report, puppies as young as one week old are poisoned with experimental drugs. Puppies are made to ingest harmful substances. And what happens to puppies from these terrible tests? Many are paralyzed, blinded, or experience convulsions. Justin Goodman, vice president of advocacy and public policy at taxpayer watchdog group White Coat Waste Project said in an emailed statement, “Our first-of-its-kind analysis in Broken Bureaucracy details how century-old FDA red tape is still coercing companies to force feed thousands of puppies massive amounts of experimental drugs and, in some cases, literally tape the dogs’ mouths shut to keep them from throwing up the deadly doses. This heavy-handed bureaucracy has continued for decades even though companies would prefer to use modern alternatives that are more accurate...
    Like other animals that are exploited in the name of entertainment, horses are subjected to the same abuse and mistreatment felt by other animals we hold captive and “train” to perform. The horse racing industry is no exception in the long list of industries that profit from the misery of the animals they call their own. And yet, despite the evidence of the cruelty horses endure in the horse racing industry, many “horse lovers” claim that horses are happy and even thrive in the industry. So, what is it like to have a conversation with “a real horse lover” who supports the horse racing industry? That’s what I kept in mind as I examined the number of ways the horse racing industry has defended itself from the criticism of animal rights activists. 1. Racing horses are respected athletes! There’s nothing unnatural about treating a horse like an athlete, claims the horse racing industry. After all, don’t you animal rights activists want us treating animals more like humans? There’s nothing more human than good sport! That would be fine and...
    A new animal protection bill was just introduced! The Alternatives to Animals for Regulatory Fairness (AARF) Act (H.R. 1905), will make sure that drugmakers aren’t forced by the FDA to poison puppies or other animals in needless experiments, according to White Coat Waste Project (WCW). Even with the knowledge that animal testing is not effective, the FDA forces companies to test on animals. This means millions of puppies are experimented on because of FDA regulations. Source: PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)/YouTube Justin Goodman, vice president of advocacy and public policy at taxpayer watchdog group White Coat Waste Project said in an emailed statement, “The bipartisan AARF Act will save puppies and other animals from wasteful and painful government-mandated experiments, allow drug makers to avoid needless animal testing red tape, and get consumers safe drugs more quickly and inexpensively, a call with particular urgency during the COVID-19 pandemic. We applaud Reps. Brendan Boyle, Madeleine Dean, Brian Fitzpatrick, and Alcee Hastings for introducing the AARF Act and for their outstanding leadership to cut the FDA’s cruel and counterproductive...
    In a groundbreaking legal victory, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California has denied the dismissal of a lawsuit against the FDA regarding a controversial drug being administered to cattle in feedlots. “The coalition—Animal Legal Defense Fund, Food & Water Watch, and Food Animal Concerns Trust—asserts the FDA had insufficient information to determine the drug is safe for animals, consumers, and the environment,” reads the press release published by Animal Legal Defense Fund on February 23. This means that the lawsuit, originally filed in June 2020, will be able to proceed. The drug in question, Experior, reduces ammonia emissions by cattle in feedlots; but animal advocates claim it has drastic adverse effects and is a band-aid solution on the issue that is industrialized meat production. It was approved by the FDA for use in cattle in 2018. Ammonia emissions are a serious issue on industrial farms, causing respiratory distress to farmworkers as well as neighboring communities. In fact, a 2015 peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Epidemiology concluded that pediatric asthma is “strongly predicted by...
    At least 65 of the so-called “orphan” drugs authorized in Europethey are not marketed in Spain, which leaves thousands of rare disease patients in health limbo, 70% children, who do not have treatment even though there are drugs on the market that could improve their quality of life. In Europe, 116 orphan drugs – aimed at rare diseases for which there is no therapeutic alternative – have commercial authorization, but only 51 are available in Spain although not in all the autonomous communities, since its access is subject to the postal code of residence. This was explained in an interview by the president of the Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases (Feder), Juan Carrión, who stressed that “if we are part of the European Unionwe want the same rights, because those drugs they can help us to live“. And of the 51 medications available in Spain, the really accessible are the 46 that are funded by the National Health System. Carrión explains that in 2020 only five orphan drugs were authorized in Spain and three of them took more than...
    Drug addiction impacts millions of lives. At some point, most of us will be affected by it, whether it’s a family member, a friend, or oneself that has the addiction. Although many people assume that the best way to fight back against addiction is through criminalizing drug-use, data shows otherwise. In 2001, Portugal decriminalized the possession of drugs for personal use and since then, many drug-related issues have significantly improved. There has been a decrease in HIV infections and drug-related deaths, past-year and past-month drug use among the general population, and rates of continued drug use. Portugal also started funding more addiction resources, such as prevention, treatment, harm reduction, and social reintegration programs. The decriminalization of drugs was also aided by other social reforms, like expanding the welfare state. Portugal is not the only example of the decriminalization of personal drug use having a positive impact on drug use and abuse. Some other examples include Czechia, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. Unfortunately, a majority of countries still criminalize drug use, which leads to mass incarceration, increased drug use, and fewer resources to help addicted individuals. One of the...
    A new bill was introduced to end testing on dogs at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). According to White Coat Waste, the bi-partisan bill will make sure that drugmakers cannot poison dogs or other animals, but use non-animal testing methods instead. The bill, Alternatives to Animals for Regulatory Fairness (AARF) Act (H.R.8736), was just introduced by Representatives Madeline Dean (D-PA), Brendan Boyle (D-PA), and Scott Perry (R-PA). Current FDA requirements mandate that drug companies must use animal testing in drugs. “Testing human drugs on dogs and other animals is inhumane, inefficient and inaccurate. This legislation ensures that regulators allow drug makers to use the most cutting-edge, human-relevant technologies to test drugs whenever possible, rather than requiring them to rely on old-fashioned and cruel animal tests,” said the bill’s co-sponsor Madeleine Dean in an emailed statement. Both animal activists and drug companies were excited by the change. “While other agencies in the FDA’s regulatory ecosystem have aggressively sought to leverage technological advances to eliminate their reliance on animal testing, the FDA lags behind them, the broader science community, and...
