Microplastics found in supermarket fish, shellfish - Technology & Science - CBC News

'Tiny pieces of plastic are making their way into fish and shellfish found at the supermarket, a new study has shown. '

'Fish is also a great source of iron, and those omega-3 fats are really important in terms of our heart health."'

'Microplastics absorb or carry organic contaminants, such as PCBs, pesticides, flame retardants and hormone-disrupting compounds of many kinds, he says. ', "It's not yet been established what effect these tiny particles of plastic will have on the humans who consume them, the report says."

'"Microbeads are really what brought microplastics to the table in Canada as something that we would regulate and monitor," says Rochman. '
