This worrying information came from tests conducted as part of some research. We know that blood contains red blood cells, leukocytes, platelets, and plasma. That’s all there is to it. However, the presence of plastic in the blood is not a safe thing to do.
It is mainly microplastic particles that are found in the blood. This is the study report of a group of Dutch researchers. The British daily ‘The Independent’ reports that plastic can enter the human body through air, food, and water. The Dutch researchers reveal almost the same findings. Plastic enters the human body from the plastic objects and equipment with which we interact most of the day.
The study was conducted by Dutch researchers on 22 people. Of these, plastic particles were also found in the blood of 17 people. Polyethylene terephthalate, or PET, was found in the blood of most of the people tested. PET-shaped plastics are commonly found in plastics used to pack water, food, and clothing.
In addition to poly-ethylene terephthalate plastics, polystyrene plastics have also been found in the blood. It is a plastic used mainly in the manufacture of household appliances. They can be found in many plastic items we use at home, from toys.
Polyethylene is the third type of plastic that researchers have discovered from blood samples. These are commonly used to make plastic carrier bags. Polyethylene, a type of plastic, was found in the blood of 36 percent of those who collected the samples.
We are the ones who use plastic materials for any purpose. Health experts point out that the presence of such particles in the human body can lead to chronic inflammation. Experts say the results of the study are alarming and that we need to rethink our actions in daily life.
