We are already aware that microplastics was found inside the bodies of a wide variety of marine animals, including fish. Recently a technique was found to identify microplastics in human tissues. Given the fact that we eat and breathe thousands of particles of micro and nano plastics we should not be surprised if this new technique reveals that these micro plastics are found in human body and tissues. Currently the health impact of these microplastics on human health is not fully known, the ongoing research will definitely reveal the details very soon. The fight against COVID19 pandemic has increased the consumption of single use plastic, currently 11 million metric tons of plastic goes into the ocean, and this is expected to reach approximately 30 million metric tons by 2040.
