Worldwide, scientific research on the possible harmful effects of micro- and nano-plastics on human cells and organs is still in its infancy. Now there are more and more alarms being raised about the possible health risks of plastic. “We already have strong indications that our health and that of our children are at stake due to the thousands of chemicals that are added to plastic. We also know that the effects of these chemicals can accumulate over generations.”
