Plastic for dinner?

It so happens I can’t stomach the taste of seafood. This has been a problem since childhood, but perhaps now it is a blessing.

You see, a new review study, published only a few days ago looked at the evidence regarding which species of fish eats how much plastic.

As we all know, the problem is increasing, but it’s worse than you think. And species people put on their table are among the worst affected.

Bon appetit!

Oh, if you are not familiar with the relevant issues, and even if you are, a visit to the source of the pic will tell you all about it.

    I’ve known for some time that everyone worldwide is drinking microplastics and assumed they are in our food, too. It is scary since we don’t know what microplastics do to creatures that will affect the life chain (it could have an effect on the loss of amphibians and other lifeforms), or for that matter, what microplastics do to our own bodies.

      It’s fair in a way that they do unknown damage to humans, but the other, innocent species don’t deserve it.
      Add plastic to being on Poison Planet, radiation, night lights affecting insects and probably other beasties, terrible noises in the sea, and so on…
      But let’s not be gloomy. All we can do is the best we can do, personally and pooling our voice.
