As enormous arrays of plastic are dumped into soil, water and air each year, microplastics have already been found in all areas of our environment including in fish and our food.
The situation seem even more alarming in light of the recent studies. In The Netherlands scientists found plastic particles in human blood. Almost 80% of the tested people had microplastics in their blood samples. Researchers in the UK have observed microplastics of 0.2 millimetres in size in live lung tissue. About 40 types of microplastics were found in 11 of the 13 samples tested.
How plastics gets into the body
The most likely sources for the plastic in people came plastic bottles, bags and food packaging. Researchers are concerned that while travelling
around the body particles can get stuck in organs and cause damage to human cells.
A safer solution for supplements
As vitamins and minerals is their liquid form can react with their plastic containers, we at Super Health sprays have chosen a safer option – a specially designed aluminium container with a protective coating that helps safeguard nutrients and keeps them pure. It demanded some extra fund but at the end it has turned out to be the right decision.
