How Are Humans Consuming Microplastics?

How Are Humans Consuming Microplastics?

Author: Hepca

One of the many ways humans consume microplastics is through Contaminated Seafood, Plastic pollution is rampant in oceans, seas, and water bodies. Through the natural environment, these plastics get broken down into smaller pieces. Eventually, they become microplastics.

These plastic particles in the marine environment are eaten by plankton, which are then eaten by fish. The plastic particles continue to work their way up the food chain until they reach our dinner plates.

Mussels are reported to be particularly susceptible to microplastic contamination. However, plastics can also be potentially found in almost any other animal that lives in the sea, or any other body of water for that matter.
