The researchers placed zebrafish embryos in dishes
containing fluoxetine, which is sold under the
brand name Prozac, for six days…

Biologists at the University of Ottawa have discovered exposing
fish embryos to Prozac affected the aquatic creatures’ ability
to manage stress for generations, prompting a call for
further research into the lasting effects of
anti-depressants on humans.

(Sea water contains fluoride.)
