A recent study shares that up to 5 grams of plastic can transfer into your body from various pathways, including common food and beverage products packaged in plastic. These microplastics are generated when plastic packaging is opened or used normally. Over time, those tiny particles are slowly contaminating the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the beverages we drink – all while negatively impacting our environment. Plus, some types of plastics carry chemicals and additives with potential long-term effects on our physical health! How many stats do we need to hear before we start creating a positive change for our health and wellbeing?
