Up the creek: Platypuses, spiders, insects with massive antidepressant doses

    Description

    A platypus' diet consists of worms, insects and yabbies — but if they live near people, they might also be served a side of antidepressants, painkillers and antibiotics.

    Ecologists found nearly 70 different medications in water-dwelling creepy-crawlies at creeks near Melbourne.
