In this short film, Philippe Garrigues, a researcher from the Institute for Molecular Sciences, evokes the water polluting, due to pharmaceutical products. When someone ingests a drug, this one will not be completely metabolized: between 50 and 90 % will end up in the wastewater. For some pharmaceutical products, the purification rate is relatively low. The impact on the environment is being actually studying.
