A new study has shed light on how drugs taken by humans can affect fish. The study showed that brown trout exposed to methamphetamine in their water changed their behaviour, brain function and had long term effects upon their behaviour and natural processes.
Around 269 million people worldwide use drugs each year, and the byproducts end up in our sewers. Sewage treatment plants don’t routinely filter out drugs. One study estimates it’d cost over £36 million to upgrade wastewater treatment plants to remove these chemicals in England and Wales alone.
In a recent study published in the Journal of Experimental Biology, researchers in the Czech Republic investigated how methamphetamine – a stimulant with a growing number of users worldwide – might be affecting wild brown trout.
They examined whether concentrations of methamphetamine and one of its byproducts, amphetamine, which were estimated from other studies that have measured illicit drug concentrations in waterways, could be detected in the brains of brown trout. They also looked at whether these concentrations were enough to cause the animals to become addicted.

University of Exeter scientists compared the effects of morphine on 52 healthy people, 27 with a history of childhood abuse and neglect, 25 who reported no such experiences in childhood. This research looks at the possibility of linking childhood trauma and

Teens and children are intentionally overdosing on the over-the-counter antihistamine as part of a social media “challenge” that may have already turned deadly.
The situation has concerned officials at the Food and Drug Administration in the US and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency’s enough that they issued a warning against the “serious problems” that can occur if you ingest too much Benadryl.
The online video encourages viewers to take excessive doses of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to induce hallucinations.

Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council are the worst council in the UK for looking after it’s population of homeless and rough sleeping communities.
In 2015, the Council played music from Alvin and the Chipmunks and bagpipes to deter rough sleepers at Bournemouth coach station.
Again in June 2016, the Council bought one-way train tickets for rough sleepers to move them out the area.
Bournemouth, Poole And Christchurch Council has been targeting our local community of homeless and rough sleeping community going right back to 2015 and even before then.
Local charities, groups and organisations who help those who are homeless or rough sleeping have been carrying out absolutely amazing work within our community, however the council haven’t always had the best interests of the homeless in mind when deciding what to do within the town and its surrounding areas.
At the time of posting this article, BCP Council have not responded to our multiple requests for their opinions or comments about this issue.
