PLASTIC APOCALYPSE: ALARMING LEVELS OF PLASTIC FOUND IN CHILDREN | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

PLASTIC APOCALYPSE: ALARMING LEVELS OF PLASTIC FOUND IN CHILDREN

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE

In the last several months we have been one of the first to cover the plastic apocalypse.

New studies are being published that detail high levels of dangerous microplastics had been detected in some of the most remote regions of the world. Another study warned microplastics are turning up in human stool. Now there are new reports that show high levels of microplastics have been found in blood and urine samples of children.

The study, conducted by the German Environment Ministry and the Robert Koch Institute, found an alarming 97% of blood and urine samples from 2,500 children tested between 2014 and 2017 had traces of microplastics.

Der Spiegel, the German weekly magazine, published the findings over the weekend, which were part of a national study focused on "human biomonitoring" of 3 to 17-year-olds, found traces of 11 out of 15 plastic ingredients in the collected samples.

"Our study clearly shows that plastic ingredients, which are rising in production, are also showing up more and more in the body. It is really worrying that the youngest children are most affected as the most sensitive group," Marike Kolossa-Gehring, one of the study's authors, told the magazine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is interesting what he speaks about, in those campaign rallies, but there is also a profound silence on some very, critically, important issues.

So it would make an even bet, that the heads of these companies would want him to win in 2016: and here is why:

The following article comes Google.com:

"Plastics are derived from natural, organic materials such as cellulose, coal, natural gas, salt and, of course, crude oil. Crude oil is a complex mixture of thousands of compounds and needs to be processed before it can be used. The production of plastics begins with the distillation of crude oil in an oil refinery."

So folks, there you have it......

I hope that, at least, some of those who participated in the study, will be able to mount a class-action lawsuit against those chemical makers who are causing this kind of pain and risk to children and infants.
