Babies vs Plastics

Back to Resource Library

This is an EARTHDAY.ORG primer on plastics, microplastics and their additive chemicals, with over 120 sources, capturing what studies from around the world have been discovering about how we ingest microplastics, how they can bioaccumulate inside of us and what the health consequences might be. We have included recent studies, pilot studies, studies with large sample groups and some with far smaller ones.

The results, taken collectively, are alarming and demand answers. We can no longer just ‘trust’ that plastics are safe, we need them proven to be safe by independent research. Until such time—the precautionary principle should be applied.
