Is your blood type “Plastic Positive”?

Microplastics were found in the blood samples of participants from eight different countries

Microplastics have become a global environmental issue, as they have been found in almost every part of the world, including our oceans, rivers, and even in the air we breathe. While most of the attention has been focused on the impact of microplastics on the environment, new research has revealed that microplastics are also present in human blood.
A recent study conducted by the Medical University of Vienna found that microplastics were present in the blood samples of participants from eight different countries, including Finland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, the United Kingdom, and Austria. The researchers analyzed the blood samples of these individuals and found that all of them contained microplastics, ranging in size from 50 to 500 micrometers.
While the long-term health effects of microplastics in human blood are still unknown, it is clear that this is a cause for concern. Microplastics can absorb and concentrate harmful chemicals, such as pesticides and heavy metals, which can then be released into the body when the particles are ingested. This can lead to a range of health problems, including inflammation, organ damage, and potentially even cancer.
It’s important to note that the presence of microplastics in human blood is not limited to just one study. A 2019 study conducted by the University of Newcastle in Australia found that humans ingest an average of 5 grams of plastic every week, the equivalent weight of a credit card. The study also found that microplastics are present in a range of common food and drink items, including tap water, bottled water, and seafood.
The fact that microplastics are present in human blood is a stark reminder that this is not just an environmental issue, but a human health issue as well. While it may be difficult to completely eliminate microplastics from our environment, we can take steps to reduce our exposure. This includes reducing our use of single-use plastics, supporting stronger regulations on plastic production and disposal, and using water filtration systems that specifically target microplastics. Klar2O is revolutionizing the drinking water industry, with the mission to make it free from microplastics and make this technology accessible and affordable to everyone. By joining forces, we can safeguard both our planet and ourselves!
