A recent study by foreign non-profit news organization Orb Media found that Of the 250 bottled water samples tested, microplastics were detected in 93% of the bottled water.
These test bottles were purchased from 11 different major brands around the world.
Specifically, the State University of New York tested bottled water provided by Orb and found that the average number of microplastics containing 100 microns (0.10 mm) per liter of water was 10.4.
It is also worrying that there are some smaller particles, the number of these particles reaches 314.6 per liter of water, and it is also likely to be plastic, but due to the (relatively unlikely) possibility of false positives, it is not available Confirmed.
Still, we have to remember: smaller particles don't mean more secure.
In fact, as mentioned in recent reports about levels of particulate pollution in British rivers, some scientists have specifically warned of microplastic pollution.
Obviously, microplastic pollution is widespread in our environment. Our bottled water, and our tap water, microplastics are present in things that we regularly ingest.
And some small enough particles may pass through our cell membrane and enter our blood.
Even more dangerous is that bottled water not only contains microplastics, but also directly causes serious plastic pollution in our environment.
So, if you can't guarantee the purity of the water, at least use a cup to drink it.
