scientist detected microplastic

For the first time, scientists discovered microplastic pollution in human blood. We all know that we are surrounded by microplastic everywhere from our food to water whatever we consume has microplastic effects on it.

Scientists tested human blood and in 80% of the blood tiny particles of microplastic are found. The study shows that the particles can travel throughout the body and particles may become lodged in organs.
According to research, these particles can enter the body through water, air, and food.

The effect on health is unknown. However, researchers are concerned because microplastic is harmful to human cells and air pollution particles are already known to enter the body and cause millions of premature deaths each year.
Massive amounts of plastic waste are dumped into the environment, and microplastics are now contaminating the entire planet, from Mount Everest’s summit to the deepest oceans. People have already been found to consume the tiny particles through food and water, as well as breathe them in, and they have been found in the feces of both babies and adults.

Vethaak acknowledged that the amount and type of plastic in the blood samples varied significantly. “But this is a pioneering study,” he said, adding that more research is needed.
Now that they have entered into the blood researcher has said that people should stop using plastic as much as possible and replace it with other things. For example, instead of using plastic bags replace them with clothing bags.

The new study was funded by the Dutch National Organization for Health Research and Development as well as Common Seas, a social enterprise dedicated to reducing plastic pollution.

“By 2040, plastic production is expected to double,” said Jo Royle, founder of the charity Common Seas. “We have a right to know what is happening to our bodies as a result of all this plastic.” Common Seas, along with more than 80 NGOs, scientists, and MPs, is requesting that the UK government invest £15 million in research into the human health impacts of plastic. The EU is already funding research into the effects of microplastics on fetuses and babies, as well as on the immune system.
