Scientists have discovered microplastics in the placentas of new mothers for the first time and are calling this a “matter of great concern.” I’ll say!

The plastics did not seem to cause birth defects or complications in the study sample where they were found but it is awful to think of plastics as part of our bodies, down to the reproductive system!

“With the presence of plastic in the body, the immune system that self-recognizes is disturbed, even what is not organic,” said the researchers. “It’s like having a cyborg baby, no longer composed only of human cells, but a mixture of a biological entity and inorganic entities.”
