Study Finds Microplastics In 93% Of Bottled Water
Out of all the bottles tested, only 17 were found to be plastic-free while on average, each liter sold contained 325 pieces of microplastic. These included polypropylene, nylon, and polyethylene terephthalate. In one case, a bottle of Nestlé Pure Life contained over 10,000 pieces of microplastic while high levels were also present in bottles from Bisleri, Gerolsteiner and Aqua. WHO officials have said that while there is no evidence that ingestion of these microplastic fibres can cause health problems, it does remain an emerging area of concern.
