Microplastics and its negative effects on children

 Microplastics can have negative effects on children's health. Here are some key points from the search results:

  • Children are more exposed to microplastics than adults, and several of the substances in microplastics are harmful to children's health
  • 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
  • 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
  • Microplastics can negatively affect human health, yet their health implications remain largely uninvestigated
  • Research on the abundance of microplastics and their effects on humans and the environment has increased exponentially in recent years
  • 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
Overall, microplastics can be harmful to children's health and it is important to prevent exposure to them.
