TRONDHEIM, Norway — Microplastics have been found crossing the placenta into unborn babies, a shocking study reveals.
Scientists warn it is impossible to stop children from ingesting the tiny plastic particles as well as even smaller nanoplastics, which can be found almost everywhere. Researchers with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology also found microplastics in newborn children.
Little ones can ingest microplastics from baby bottles, toys, textiles, and food packaging. It also may be in formula milk and even breast milk, although scientists are still working to find concrete evidence of this.
When microplastics end up in household dust, children can ingest them by playing and crawling on the floor. Microplastics contain other harmful chemicals as well as plastic, such as phthalates and metals added for color, stabilization, or as a biocide. When microplastics end up outdoors, for example as particles from car tires, this plastic core is often coated with air pollution and car exhaust.
