Plastic waste, unnecessarily wrapping food

I posted this a year ago and since then little has changed in terms of unnecessarily wrapping food but polluting the planet has got worse from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from the highest mountain tops to the depths of the deepest oceans.

26th January 2021

We recently had to shop at a supermarket at a major London railway station and everything was wrapped in plastic. The illustration isn’t from the shop as it was far worse than that. This has to stop. Not just because of the sad photos we see of wildlife tangled up and dying in our rubbish but what it is doing to humans as well. Microplastic fibres were found in the placenta of women having recently given birth. These plastics can be endocrine disruptors and can also attach themselves to heavy metals and toxins so we are not only poisoning ourselves as adults but also future generations.

How does the plastic side order taste?

I posted this a year ago and little if anything has changed as we’re still wrapping so many things unnecessarily in plastic that is damaging both our health and the environment.

26th December 2020

How was that plastic side order with your meal? You wouldn’t want to eat the plastic wrapping of this broccoli but we all are. Plastic similar to it has been dumped or escaped into the global environment for decades. Wind, waves and sun have broken it down into microplastic and nanoplastic particles that are carried in the air, float in the water and are buried in the soil. They accumulate in animals including us with recent research showing they are found in the placenta of women giving birth so this plastic pollution is probably being passed on to human babies. These particles appear to be in vegetables so even if you are vegan you are being exposed. So since not all brocolis are wrapped in plastic why should any? We all need to change and we need to change now because we are poisoning ourselves because of convenience. We must also remember that these particles can carry other toxins and pathogens into our bodies. Next year we all need to take part in shutting down unnecessary plastic production and use. This means complaining at supermarkets, joining action groups and asking our political representatives to take action. Fossil fuel corporations want to increase plastic production putting short term profits before our health and that of the environment. The year 2021 needs to be the year we stop them.

Microplastics discovered in the placenta. That’s right, we’ve polluted the planet that much.

I posted this just over a year ago and we’re still poisoning ourselves. A recent piece of research found that tiny particles of plastic crossed the blood brain barrier in mice. Now these won’t kill you immediately but it’s the tiniest things in life that do kill us from bacteria and viruses, smoke particles and asbestos fibres to possibly these items of our convenient lifestyles. For 2022 it’s time for all of us to change our lives and demand from our governments the changes to the use of plastics required for a safe future.

December 2020

A new study shows that microplastics have been found in the placenta of a number of women. These microplastic particle can be joined to toxins and pathogens and they are in some cases travelling through our bodies and it would seem into or at least affect newly born children. The long term health consequences have probably not been worked out, yet the fossil fuels industries wants to produce more plastic. These industries need to regulated properly and unnecessary plastic use needs to be curtailed.

A Christmas scene

I posted this blog in December 2020 and it’s just as relevant today. Another year and another pile of plastic pollution.

December 2020

Some people might say that I’m being very negative about Christmas and I suppose they would be right in a sense. However I’m personally not very happy living in a very heavily polluted world. Is this Christmas scene polluted? Well that depends. We are all living in a soup of microplastic and nanoplastic particles that we are eating and breathing in. How serious is it? We don’t generally know but since pathogens and toxins can hitch a ride on these tiny particles we don’t really want to find out. A recent study found microplastics in the placenta of women so how much damage are we causing to unborn children? So here’s the link to this photo as I like to make connections and join the dots. Young children attending the Christmas events on this scene in a shopping centre are probably already carrying these tiny and potentially harmful particles in their bodies. Now we need to ask how much of this Christmas display is plastic and what’s going to happen to that plastic going forward. Maybe some of it will go on and end up in the future brothers and sisters of the young children who come to see a plastic wrapped Santa. We need to change and we all need to become aware.

Interesting study. This will probably become very big news in the next 5 to 10 years as we start to fall sick through ingesting our own plastic waste.
