Microplastics – Risk Assessment – Interaction with Co-Existing Contaminants Studied

The abstract of a February 2022 Chemosphere article https://doi.org/10.1016/j.chemosphere.2021.133212 by researchers with Israel Tel Aviv University “… examines the role of microplastics (MPs) as a contaminant vector to the human body … this study not only elucidates the role of MPs as a trace organic compounds (TrOCs) vector, but also demonstrates a realistic scenario in which co-presence of these environmental contaminants poses risks to the environment and human health … MP risk assessment must consider its inevitable interaction with co-existing contaminants …” #MicroPlastics #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic @TelAvivUni
