Average person swallows plastic equivalent to a credit card every week, report finds
The average person now ingests five grams of plastic each week, the equivalent of a credit card, a new report by WWF has found.

Researchers found that people are consuming up to 102,000 tiny pieces of plastic of less than 1mm - 250 grams each year - with nearly 90 per cent coming from water, both bottled and tap. Other foods with highest plastic levels include shellfish, beer and salt..

In Europe around 72 per cent of tap water now contains plastic with nearly two plastic fibres found per 500ml.

Some types of plastic carry chemicals and additives which have been shown to influence sexual function, fertility and increase the occurrence of genetic mutations and cancers.

Re: Average person swallows plastic equivalent to a credit card every week, report finds
I always wonder if the earth will survive plastics. When they degrade, they just degrade into smaller & smaller particles. What's going to happen when the earth is choked with microscopic plastics at the microbial level and starts impacting life at that level? Any plastics engineers care to chime in? I'm thinking that isn't going to be good.

Seems the only solution is to buy a home water distiller.
The downside is that distilled water becomes acidic when it mixes with oxygen in the air.

 Quoting: Jake


Zero water works pretty good and they give you a tds meter to check the water content. It’s rather accurate also, I checked it with my apera instruments tds60 that I have for work and it was only off by .001

Zero waters pitch is a guaranteed .000 and with my tds meter I got that reading which is surprising to me because the company I work for uses an industrial filter to wash potatoes before making chips and their parameters are .000 - .020

You don’t want to drink distilled water. You need the minerals water supplies. Distillation removes minerals. You want a filter that leaves minerals that are good for you.

Use a good water filter system, reverse osmosis.


So what about the real foods in the stores, ie the vegetables, fruits, meats and dairy?

All the middle rows of the store should be avoided anyway, as over 50% of the people are carb sensitive to allergic.

And none of this would have happened if they had used easily degradable bio plastics such as from industrial hemp or from flax/corn/straw, and many others.
