DO NOT DRINK PLASTIC BOTTLED WATER




NANO PLASTICS IN YOUR WATER 💦🤔


“In a trailblazing new study, researchers have discovered bottled water sold in stores can contain 10 to 100 times more bits of plastic than previously estimated - nanoparticles so infinitesimally tiny they cannot be seen under a microscope.


At 1000th the average width of a human hair, nanoplastics are so teeny they can migrate through the tissues of the digestive tract or lungs into the bloodstream, distributing potentially harmful synthetic chemicals throughout the body and into cells, US experts say.


One litre of water - the equivalent of two standard-size bottled waters - contained an average of 240,000 plastic particles from seven types of plastics, of which 90 per cent were identified as nanoplastics and the rest were microplastics, according to the new study.”
