All that glitters is certainly not gold

A post from a year ago. What’s new is that recent research has shown that small plastic particles can pass the blood brain barrier in mice. Can they do this in humans? Are we searching for these particles during autopsies? Will this become a full blown medical problem in the future.

December 2020

A bit late with this post but still something to consider for the future. Glitter is basically plastic and as it falls off cards and other objects and materials that it is applied to it will enter the environment. The problem is that almost if not all environments on Earth are polluted by micro and nano sized plastics particles. The soil, the oceans and the air. Sure, one of two particles might not kill you directly or quickly but this plastic pollution is finding it’s way up through the food chains including those of plants and accumulating in our bodies. These small pieces of plastic can join with other chemicals and pathogens so potentially can cause great harm, even to humans. It may look great but for life on Earth glitter probably isn’t.
