Americans are taking so many anti-depressants that they are ending up in fish brains.

Traces of human antidepressants have been found in bass, walleye and ten different species of fish in America’s Great Lakes, according to a new study.

The drugs, detected in a study conducted by chemists at the University at Buffalo, leak into rivers and lakes from waste treatment plants and sewage overflows, and could be a threat to aquatic life, reports the Fox news channel.
