That is interesting. I never would have thunk it.

From a more complete article: "Our study findings indicate that, contrary to our prediction, the waste water treatment plants are not a major source of caffeine to coastal waters," says Granek.

The whole article: 'Caffeinated' coastal waters: Possible sources include sewer overflows, septic tanks

Coffee is not the only source of caffeine. I don't understand how they can say there are no natural sources. The camellia manufactures caffeine, and for that matter, there are thousands of plant species that have never been tested.

What is truly scary is the amount of birth control drugs and anti-depressents also found in water these days.
