"We swallow over a hundred pieces of plastic with every meal"

Matt_ADMIN_Matt_ADMIN_ Administrator

We could be swallowing more than 100 tiny plastic particles with every main meal, a shocking study reveals.

The plastic, which can come from soft furnishings and synthetic fabrics, gets into household dust which falls on plates and is consumed.

UK scientists made the discovery after putting Petri dishes containing sticky dust traps on the table next to dinner plates in three homes at meal times.

Up to 14 pieces of plastic were found in the Petri dishes at the end of a 20-minute meal – the equivalent of 114 plastic fibres falling on the average dinner plate given their much larger size.

    Hope those plastic pieces re-combine inside us to form a bone strengthening compound.
