Human testicles contain microplastics and nanoplastics #

A recent study found that human testicles contain significantly higher levels of microplastics and nanoplastics compared to animal testes and human placentas. The study, conducted on preserved testes from cadavers, revealed that the levels of plastic shards and various types of plastics in human testes were three times greater than those found in dogs. The presence of these minuscule particles in the human body raises concerns about the potential impacts on reproductive health and overall well-being. Further research is needed to understand the implications of microplastic exposure on fertility and related health conditions.
