Bottled water fans, brace yourselves! A recent study has shattered the illusion of bottled water as a healthy hydration hero. Those convenient plastic bottles might harbour a shocking secret: up to 100 times more microplastics than previously thought!
Did you know the average person in the U.K. uses over 150 plastic water bottles yearly? That’s nearly 3 billion litres of bottled water guzzled annually in the mistaken belief we’re doing our bodies a favour! But what if those tiny microplastics lurking within are actually doing the opposite?
Smaller than a sesame seed, these insidious fragments are infiltrating our oceans, food, and even bottled water. The latest research, published in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, counted an alarming 240,000 plastic fragments per litre in popular brands. That’s 10 to 100 times higher than previous estimates, raising serious health concerns.
But wait, there’s more! Researchers also detected nanoplastics, even tinier particles that can bypass our digestive system and enter our bloodstream, potentially reaching organs and crossing the placenta.
While their long-term health effects are still under review, early research suggests links to reproductive issues and gastric problems.
