Scientists find microplastics in human blood for the first time

The results of a recent study by scientists from the Free University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands have appeared on the network. They were able to detect microplastics in human blood – for the first time in the history of observations.

The most shocking thing about all this is that foreign particles were found in 80% of the people tested. At the same time, donors for analysis were selected among anonymous respondents, who, moreover, were completely healthy.

According to experts, they do not yet know what effect microplastics have on the human body. But at the same time, they noted that in laboratory conditions, it was found to cause proven harm damage to human cells.

Recall also that recent studies have shown that microplastics are able to cling to the outer membranes of red blood cells, thereby limiting their ability to transport oxygen.
