The Cycle of Plastic - From You, to the Ocean, and Back
A small study was done recently where eight participants in various countries recorded everything they ate, then had their stool sample tested. Every stool sample tested from the participants contained traces of microplastics. Of the 10 different types of plastic being tested for, 9 of the were identified in the stool. Six of the participants ate seafood, meaning the participants didn’t have to have seafood to have ingested plastic.
