Drinking Bottled Water Doubles Your Microplastic Intake

Do you know Drinking bottled water can double your microplastic intake?

Yes, it’s True !! Plastic pollution has become so globally distributed that it’s now affecting our bodies. Unknowingly we are consuming tiny and microscopic pieces of plastic with our food beverages and even air we breathe.

Americans are eating, drinking and breathing between 74,000 and 121,000 microplastic particles each year!

According to a study published in the Journal of Environment Science and Technology people who drink bottled water can ingest up to 90,000 plastic particles additionally.

A portion of these particles is little enough to enter substantial tissues and trigger an insusceptible reaction. They may even discharge toxic substances from the plastic into our bodies.

The study authors concluded that “Our estimates of American consumption of microplastics are likely drastic underestimated overall”.

“Although, the full impact of this on human well being isn’t yet known”. Study creators, via CNN
