Do You Eat As Much Plastic As A Mussel?
Published on April 10, 2018
Whenever we sit down to eat, we also consume more than 100 pieces of microplastic. Microplastics fall onto our plates with the rest of the dust from the air. A study compared the number of plastic fibers eaten by humans to that of a mussel. Researchers found the average mussel contains less than two plastic fibers. So don't worry about eating plasticky seafood. Instead, dust more often!
