Are Microplastics in Food a Threat to Your Health?

A number of studies in the 1970s began investigating the levels of microplastics in the oceans and found high levels in the Atlantic Ocean off the US coast (1, 2).

Other studies have found up to 300 microplastic fibers per pound (660 fibers per kilogram) of honey and up to about 109 microplastic fragments per quart (109 fragments per liter) of beer (8, 9).

Recent studies have shown that certain fish mistake plastic for food, which can lead to toxic chemicals accumulating inside fish liver (13).
