Everyday we wash so many different things down the drain. From our own bodies debris and waste to bleach and various types of soaps. The drain is one big chemical cocktail.

Reminiscent of the X-Files episode, "The Host", where, as a result of pouring radioactive substances down the drain, effectively creating a monster.

Now I'm not suggesting anything that impressive. But perhaps there are new species or life forms of microbes being created as a result of the huge amount and array of chemicals and debris we wash down our drains.

I'm not 100% sure if this is the correct forum for this topic but I'd like to hear what people think.

Sounds really interesting actually...could you imagine some of the the s**t down there though? Pun intended.

There must be some form of genetic mutations/ microbial mixing around that while not impressive, is still pretty cool. Who knows, there might be a cancer cure down there, or an AIDS vaccine.

I wouldnt say that chemicals would spontaneously create new species of lifeforms... more likely if it DOESN'T kill whatever is rummaging about in the drains/sewers i feel it would more mutate/disfigure them then give rise to new species... with mutatations that could possibly pass on to offspring depending on what type of mutation is taking place

Things have happened before but nothing out of the extraordinaire. Something already would of happened. Drains go back to ancient Rome. I see what you're saying, I guess it's wrong or it's disappearing.

the chemicals would probably kill whatever is down there in the sewers

Just wondering, why would a creature mutate/be created when coming in contact with chemicals and other such things? Never really understood that to be honest.

The Host, good episode of The X-Files, re watching the whole series at the moment.

As for your question, I'm not too sure. I've heard a lot of mutated fish are popping up all over the Gulf of Mexico after the oil spill. http://worldtruth.tv...gulf-of-mexico/

I saw this video cover when I was a kid and that was enough to make me cautious every time I went. :D

I skimmed through the post wrong. Yeah that's true. There's been reports of strange creatures in sewers. It has nothing to do with chemicals or anything we flush.

Mutations can certainly happen by what goes down the drain. The things that would mutate, by damage caused to it's DNA I believe, the most would be bacteria since a 'beneficial' mutation could be rapidly passed on because of their reproduction rates. Look at MRSA, likely made by people not finishing their prescribed antibiotics OR the bacteria survived all of the antibacterial stuff out there. Frogs are found mutated in polluted areas and they are used as a measuring stick since they too reproduce in large numbers. If something is born mutated and it doesn't kill it off or make it sterile then it could pass the mutation along. Next thing you know, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES.
