Potential Effects of Micro Plastics

There is growing research evidence of the existence of Micro Plastics in the human body and according to recent findings these have a potential damaging effect upon our immune system health.

Research presented at the Plastic Health Summit in Amsterdam revealed that our body immune cells that recognise and attack micro plastics will die quickly as a result of the contact.

The experiments showed that immune cells that encountered micro plastics under controlled laboratory test conditions died three times quicker than those that did not come into contact with micro plastics.

With plastic production set to quadruple over the next decade the potential damage to human health needs to be evaluated.
