It's Been Revealed That Our Bodies Contain Plastic - Here's Why It's Worrying
A study from the Medical University of Vienna has revealed that Microplastics have been found in the digestive systems of people from eight different countries including the UK.
The small study examined stool samples from eight participants from Europe, Japan and Russia all of which contained Microplastics particles. It was the first study of its kind and it's evident that more research is needed to understand what effects this will have on human health.
The alarming results of the study isn't a surprise for many as we were already aware that fish were ingesting plastic, and a recent investigation in Italy found Microplastics in soft drinks. From this study it is evident that more research is needed to understand what effects Microplastics will have on human health.
Single-use plastics should be eliminated - not only are they causing havoc on our environment, plastic has made its way into our bodies.
