First posted in 2020. We haven’t made any real progress in getting plastic out of our lives.
200+ years of industrial progress. Here’s another reason why we need to be reducing the amount of oil and other related products that we dig out of the ground because basically we are all eating them. Anyone that eats something from the sea is ingesting these micro and nano sized particles because they make their way up the food chain. Very few studies have been carried out on what effect they will have on our health. There is a potential of carrying pathogens that catch a free ride and if small enough whether they can cross the blood brain barrier. Just because they haven’t killed you today doesn’t mean that they won’t be the cause of a major health issue in the future because at the moment we just don’t know. It is therefore very important that we reduce all the unnecessary plastic packaging that is part of the first world convenience and our use of the raw materials. In the longer term some of those hand sanitiser bottles and masks used against the corona virus may become nano sized particles that carry or trigger something deadly in your body.
