In a study conducted by Common Seas, 77% of U.K participants were found to have plastic in their blood.
Plastic is everywhere. We know it is hurting the health of our planet, and it may also be hurting our bodies. With the global rate of plastic use expected to double in the coming years, we need to know the impact these microplastics will have on our health.
We do know these particles contain harmful chemicals. We also know that once they are in our bloodstream, they could potentially lodge themselves in our organs. Despite this, there is practically no research on the health consequences of this new reality.
Our veins are polluted, and we need to know what that means.The first step in tackling the plastic problem is equipping ourselves with knowledge.
