    Next time when you give blood samples check for plastic contents

    It is really stunning that 8 out of 10 people whose blood samples were collected for other clinical test were stumbled to find microplastics presence. The plastic matter can enter our body through air, food and these particles cannot be seen with naked eyes and the presence of the same would lead to health disorders. When we drink the throw away water pachet it is made of plastic, when we drink the coconut water through the straw, that is made of plastic and thus we invariably use the plastic items without knowing the health hazards.

    Recently there was a study conducted to see the presence of plastics in human blood. It was found that almost 77% of the tested samples are having some plastic contents in them. This is a very recent study and what is the method they adopted and details are not known to many I think. The particles of PET bottles generally are used for drink bottling, food packing and clothes packing are found in many cases. There are phthalates in some samples. These pthalates are nothing but plasticisers that are used in cosmetics. These may be entering the human body through the skin. Another plastic that is found is polystyrene.
    As of now the level of plastic microparticles are very less in the atmosphere and the levels in the blood are also not high to worry about. But plastic materials are dumped more means we may find finer particles in the atmosphere and they may get into the blood more and more. So we have to see that plastic dumping is minimum so that we all will be safe.

    This is an informational thread by the author. Yes, definitely our blood consists of a number of plastics and It will surely affects our other internal activities or organs. There are many more elements in the environment that we do not include in our intake that have been directly but indirectly we are consuming them and access to any of the elements can be harmful to our body. I strongly believe an awareness should be spread in this matter and people should be more conscious of such things.

    This is really an interesting thread raised by the author regarding the the plastics which are making inroads in our blood samples. It is a way of making them conscious how they can tackle this issue. Very often we ask the tea vendors to offer us teas in the plastic cups without minding the hazards of such tea consumptions. Again we are in the habit of using plastic bottles indiscriminately for our water intake- be it office or otherwise. Plastics are the tiny particles having its capacity to dissolve in the liquid we consume and makes its inroads inside our system. Then it passes through the blood stream where its presence is noticeable. More we raise this issue in health platforms the better consciousness will develop in the consumers while using plastic cups or bottles.

    The presence of micro plastic particles in our blood is definitely a fearful situation. Plastic is a chemical and it can harm our bodies in many ways. We are using plastic in so many forms that the micro particles can enter our bodies quite easily. Water bottles, plastic plates, plastic mugs etc are the sources from where we can pick up them along our food. Does it mean that there should be a ban on the plastic for packaging the food items as well as using them as utensils. If it is so then it requires a consensus on the global scale and their use is to be avoided in our households. It would be a difficult task to do so as people have become quite habitual with the plastics in our lives.
    Knowledge is power.
