New Fad: Plastic Diet

June 27, 2019

The latest diet that’s the least nutritional and the most harmful is the fad nowadays! But this diet is most popular to Australians since they ingest about 5 grams of plastic every week without them realizing it. The ingestion of plastic is caused by the severity of ocean pollution. Did you know that 5 grams of plastic are the amount it takes to create a credit card?
-
And if it continues, 21 grams each month can be digested which is a total of 250 grams of plastic! This research was published by the University of Newcastle for the global environment group WWF and shows the impact of plastic pollution on humans.

Surprisingly, the plastic diet is not only found fishes – significant sources were salt and beer.

-
 8 million tonnes of plastic (an estimate) winds up in oceans every year, posing a threat not only human health but also to wildlife.
