Since my old thread got archived - microplastics


Recommended Posts

Here's my prediction up front. In 10, 15 years or whatever, they're going to make the connection between microplastics and autoimmune diseases, and probably also autism.

Bottle-fed babies swallow millions of microplastics a day, study finds

Exposure is far higher than previously thought and also affects plastic food containers

Bottle-fed babies are swallowing millions of microplastic particles a day, according to research described as a “milestone” in the understanding of human exposure to tiny plastics.

Scientists found that the recommended high-temperature process for sterilising plastic bottles and preparing formula milk caused bottles to shed millions of microplastics and trillions of even smaller nanoplastics.

 

 

The really interesting part will be if the plastics industry will know in advance and try to pull a Big Tobacco gaslighting on us.
