stars We could be swallowing more than 100 tiny plastic particles with every main meal

The plastic, which can come from soft furnishings and synthetic fabrics, gets into household dust which falls on plates and is consumed.

The university academics made the discovery after putting Petri dishes containing sticky dust traps on the table next to dinner plates in three homes at meal times.

Up to 14 pieces of plastic were found in the Petri dishes at the end of a 20-minute meal – the equivalent of 114 plastic fibres falling on the average dinner plate given their much larger size.

The scientists, from Heriot-Watt University concluded that the average person swallows up to 68,415 potentially dangerous plastic fibres a year simply through sitting down to eat.

The researchers set out to compare plastic fibres found in mussels with the amount in the average household meal.

They found fewer than two microplastics in each mussel, which could be linked to the marine environment, and concluded that the average person can expect to consume 100 plastic particles a year through eating the shellfish.

But they will ingest anything from 13,731 to 68,415 fibres in a year during meals because of household dust.

unfortunately if youre consuming anything from the ocean it likely has at least trace amounts of plastic in it

LOL Imagine what's in the food from the food processing plant or manufacturing and packaging plant that the food comes from.

Just used my plastic disposable pepper mill earlier and wondered about the plastic grinding wheel piece wearing down.

One day, nature will find out what to do with it.
Could take a million years, but can also be tomorow.

only using stainless steel or cast iron is recommended

throw out the 'non stick' and aluminum stuff
