Microplastics found to alter shape of and de-cluster human lung cells

A study into the effects of microplastics on human lung cells has found that they may alter their function

A growing body of research has started to illuminate the widespread impacts of plastic pollution, and the downstream effects of it on the environment and human health. A new study has delved into the kind of damage microplastics can cause to human lungs, with researchers observing changes to the shape of lung cells and a slowdown in their metabolism when exposed to these tiny plastic particles.
