THE NEW FRONTIER IN MAMMALIAN TOXICITY AND ADVERSE HEALTH OUTCOMES
When it comes to nanoplastics, how tiny is tiny? Get a load of this. “Nanoplastics are thousands of times tinier, with a diameter of less than 0.1 μm….. By comparison, a human hair ranges from about 15 to 180 μm across. Some of these microplastics are deliberately engineered like microbeads in a facial scrub.” In other words, not only are these nanoplastics microscopic, they are microscopically minuscule, making it possible for them to worm their way into places where larger particles could never get (see previous link). Dr. Meeker went on to warn, “They are now turning up everywhere and we know virtually nothing about how they might impact human health.” Honestly, we do know something about how they are affecting our health, and none of it is good (see link at top of page).
Speaking of not good, try this on for size. Some sunscreens and cosmetics now contain nanoplastics (although they have been banned in rubs, scrubs, shampoos, etc, that are meant to be washed off immediately, they are allowed in toiletry items that meant to stay on the skin for an extended period of time). If you think I’m being a bit over the top, simply do a Google search for ‘nanoparticle sunscreen‘ or ‘nanoparticle makeup’. Knowing what you already know about the toxicity of plastics, prepare to be shocked. It’s why it’s more critical than ever that you keep your BODY’S BIOTRANSFORMATION SYSTEMS up and running and in perfect working order. The easiest way to accomplish this? Avoid exposure to toxic junk and eat the right kinds of foods. For more information on how to go about accomplishing this, be sure and take a look at THIS POST.
