    1
    .
  • Microplastics can cause digestive issues, inflammation, and disrupt nutrient absorption. They can also cause developmental delay in children and make their way to developing fetuses
    2
    .
  • One study found that perinatal exposure to low levels of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), which are present in microplastics, may cause developmental defects and long-term neurological consequences in children
    3
    .
  • Microplastics can negatively affect human health, yet their health implications remain largely uninvestigated
    4
    .
  • Research on the abundance of microplastics and their effects on humans and the environment has increased exponentially in recent years
    5
    .
  • The use of plastic material, widely present in microplastics, has been linked to various health problems such as reproductive and obesity, organ problems, and even developmental delays in children
    6
    .
Overall, microplastics can be harmful to children's health and it is important to prevent exposure to them.
