We Ingest A Teaspoon Of Microplastic Every Week
Surprising news: there’s a new study that claims we could be ingesting a teaspoon of microplastic every week. That’s practically a melted down credit card! It found that the global average of microplastic ingestion could be as high as five grams a week per person. Wow, and here I was thinking teaspoons of sugar were my only problem!
The Daily spoke to Dr Thava Palanisami, Senior Research Fellow from the Global Centre for Environmental Remediation, at the University of Newcastle, about the health concerns of this microplastic ingestion.
