Should we be eating microplastic?


Microplastics are present in the air, water, and soil, and they infiltrate the food we eat every day.   However, the health impacts of inadvertently consuming plastic are still largely unknown. This paper explores two questions: First, where is microplastic present in food and water supplies.  Second, what studies have linked health concerns and the microplastics found in food and water supplies?  The possible health impacts from microplastics are discussed.
