According to the Russian satellite news agency website, scientists from New York University wrote a few days ago that Currently there are an average of 325 plastic particles per liter of bottled water.
In their experiments, chemists studied 259 bottles of water from Europe, Africa, Asia, and North and South America, including bottled water from some of the world's leading brands.
Chemical analysis shows that Only 17 bottles of all bottled water contain no plastic particles, and the remaining bottled water contains up to 10,000 plastic particles in one liter of water.
Most of the particles are 6-100 microns in diameter, almost as thick as human hair. At the same time, most of the particles are polypropylene used to make bottle caps.
Earlier scientists said that since the first emergence of plastic manufacturing technology, humans have produced about 800,000 tons of plastic. Two-thirds of them are now in landfills or floating at sea.
