Microplastic Contamination Found in Food and Beverages #

Recent research has revealed the presence of microplastics in various food and beverage products. Animal and vegetable protein samples have shown positive results for microplastics, with even fruits and vegetables absorbing them through their root systems. Studies have found high levels of microplastics in coarse Himalayan pink salt, black salt, marine salt, tea bags, rice, and bottled water. The ingestion of microplastics is concerning as they can enter major organs, potentially disturbing cellular processes and carrying harmful chemicals. Researchers have warned about the health risks associated with nanoplastics. Experts suggest reducing exposure by avoiding plastic containers, consuming fresh food, and using glass or stainless steel containers instead.
