Effects on Bio-organisms

Micro- and nanoplastics entering the marine and freshwater food chains can introduce harmful pollutants which effect reproduction, growth, immune response and productivity. In addition, these particles can accumulate in tissues and organs over time and potentially produce negative effects. Studies have found that chemicals linked to micro- and nanoplastics correlate to health complications such as diabetes, obesity, infertility, cardio vascular disorders, neurological problems and cancer.
