    posted on by Zoutman

    With alarming regularity, we get to hear about studies and news reports on microplastics: these are the minuscule residues of plastics that end up in our food through the fish, shellfish, salt, bottled water and sugar we take in, for instance. Scores of food products have already repeatedly been investigated. Time and again, the conclusion is that they contain microscopically tiny plastic particles.
