For the first time, microplastics were found in the blood of people. How did he get there?
The main source of microplastics in the environment is water, which people use for washing, and worn-out car tires. In addition, any plastic object, once in water or soil, eventually decomposes under the influence of moisture and the sun and also spreads polymer microparticles around.
The fact that polymer particles enter the human body together with food has been repeatedly confirmed - their source can be both packaging materials and the food itself. Another source of microplastics in a person can be the air of a megalopolis, in which, as a rule, nanometer dust particles of various origins hang.
Hi! Because of food and Detergents!
