People eat at least 50,000 plastic particles a year, study finds
  • The particles of plastic materials are found in water, air, soil and in all the ecosystems of the planet.
  • Bottled water in plastic containers contains approximately 30 times more plastic particles than drinking water from faucets.
  • Also, according to the study, plastic waste has been found in human feces which reveal that people consume these materials.
  • Even though the effect of the consumption of these plastic particles by people is not known, it is presumed that it can affect human health in general.
