NPR shared a story of a study (that originated in the magazine Nature) about plastics in the ocean that end up in your seafood.
Food for thought.
Apparently, the plastics floating around the ocean absorb lots of contaminants and pollutants. They suck it up like a kid on a pixie stick. Plastics love all the other nasty things in the ocean. Then the fish eat the plastic up. Yuck. Fish o’ paraben. Ah, plastic- a gift that just keeps on giving.
These fish don’t end up just containing plastic, they end up full of PCBs and other unsavory chemicals. Then we eat them. Hmmmm.
