Micro and Nano Plastic Effects on Human Health to be Studied

According a December 1, 2020 notice, researchers with Wageningen University and Research “… Humans are exposed to micro and nanoplastics due to their widespread presence in the environment. Yet there is only very limited information on the potential impact of this exposure on human health. In a consortium with 11 partners coordinated by Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona researchers … will study the impact that micro and nanoplastics may have on the human intestinal tract. For this they’ll use a diversity of human cell-based approaches, and investigate the potential on adverse outcomes for human health …” - The web link to the notice is included in the post on the home page of Plastic Food Packaging Waste News at https://pfpw.news/2020/12/03/micro-and-nano-plastic-effects-on-human-health-to-be-studied/ #MicroPlastics #NanoPlastic #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic
