Health: Drinking water from plastic bottle is no less than poison! Pregnant women are most at risk..


Small particles of plastic can prove to be very dangerous for our health. That is why experts have advised drinking water or other beverages from glass or metal bottles. Dr Luisa Campagnolo, an expert in histology and embryology at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, has warned that human tissues are at risk due to small plastic particles. In earlier research, it was revealed that microparticles of plastic can also enter the human bloodstream and the placenta.


But at the annual conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a new study on rats was reported. According to this research, small particles of plastic can destroy the fetus of pregnant women. According to Dr Luisa, there are indications that fetuses may be the target of plastic particles.

What are microplastics
Microplastics are small pieces of plastic less than 0.2 inches (5 mm) in diameter. Apart from this, some microparticles of plastic are so small that it is not possible to see them with the naked eye. According to experts, disposed plastic bottles can leave debris, especially when the plastic is exposed to sunlight. Dr Luisa says that it would be better for our health also not to drink water from plastic bottles.


What came out of the research
According to Dr Philip, an expert in environmental and nanoscience bioengineering at Rutgers University in New Jersey, this research done on animals is alarming. According to one of his research last month, after 24 hours, micro- and nano-plastics were found in the umbilical cord of a pregnant animal. Not only this but these plastic particles were also found in every part of the fetus. Dr Philip says that each person consumes about 5 grams of micro and nano-plastic every week, which is worrying.
