New crop of chemicals is found in birds' eggs


www.boston.com

Eggs from an array of Maine birds - from lordly bald eagles to timorous piping plovers; from swallows snarfing insects in suburban backyards to storm-petrels feeding hundreds of miles at sea - contain 100 industrial and household contaminants, scientists will report today.

According to research to be presented to the Maine Legislature, all 60 eggs tested by biologists and chemists - taken from 23 wild species, inhabiting every major ecosystem in the state, from Kittery to Calais - carried at least trace amounts of the 100 chemicals, occasionally at levels believed to be harmful to the birds.

Pharmaceuticals in the drinking water. Chemicals in birds' eggs. Is environmental pollution getting worse, or are people just getting more insistent that something be done? Unless you eat wild birds' eggs, the chemicals probably wouldn't affect you, but it's part of a larger picture.

i dont eat wild bird eggs but i do eat wild birds quite often. this is troubling news. but i would have to imagne there are probably no chemicals that cant already be found in trace amounts in most humans. im not trying to undermind the problem with that statement and i do believe something should be done..
