Microplastics from clothing, packaging and bottles discovered in human lung tissue.
A new study has found microplastics in human blood for the first time. The discovery shows the particles can travel around the body and may lodge in organs. Microplastics enter the body from food and drink containers.
Researchers have provided evidence that complex mixtures of endocrine disrupting chemicals impact children’s brain development and language acquisition and disrupt the regulation of genes linked to autism.
Scientists detected more than 400 different chemicals from plastic reusable drinking bottles and over 3,500 substances derived from dishwasher soap after putting these bottles through the dishwasher. Several of these substances are potentially quite harmful to human health, including endocrine-disrupting chemicals and insecticides like DEET.
A new study has found that nearly 2 million new cases of pediatric asthma every year may be caused by a traffic-related air pollutant, a problem particularly important in big cities. Equally disturbing, a second study by the same research team finds that 1.8 million excess deaths around the world are linked to urban air pollution.
The results of a new scientific study have demonstrated that exposure to phthalates — a ubiquitous group of chemicals found in everything from plastics to personal care products to electronics — may disrupt an important hormone needed to sustain a healthy pregnancy.
