There was a stone, bronze, iron, gunpowder age, and now, most likely, it is a plastic age. The ubiquitous use of plastic has long been a problem. However, not everyone thinks in their everyday life about the fact that plastic (including) harms the person himself, penetrating into his body along with food.
Plastic - the main problem with this substance is that it practically does not decompose once it is in nature, especially in the short-term historical perspective. And this has already become a real problem. Plastic can accumulate for centuries. The worst thing is that this substance is completely unsafe for the human body and can cause significant harm to it (if accumulated). Today, scientists are literally confident that almost every person on Earth eats "plastic waste".
Interesting fact: most people do not pay attention to such trifles, but in the world in recent years, a gradual abandonment of plastic has really begun. First of all, this was reflected in the production of disposable tableware and containers.
Meanwhile, Canadian scientists analyzed the situation and came to the conclusion that, on average, at least 75 thousand plastic microparticles enter the human body every year. Is it a lot or a little? Good question. The researchers themselves argue that in the context of an average human life, this value is too large, since plastic tends to accumulate and remain in the human body. Plastic particles get inside with water, food and even air.
From the latter, it becomes clear that even if a fighter for a healthy lifestyle completely refuses to use plastic products for himself personally, this will not completely solve the problem and does not guarantee such a person absolute safety. The main problem was and remains in the production of the material, which is still at a very high level. Scientists believe that people should find another, safer material for widespread domestic and industrial use.
Note: analysis of food products available to the average person in America and Europe showed that most of the plastic parts are contained in bottled water, sea fish and sugar … The researchers are convinced that with the existing increase in the content of polymers in different products, very soon this list will expand significantly.
