Diary 271: Use of plastics affects human health
You have heard of “No plastic day” successfully implemented in Penang and Selangor.
More and more responded to using less or not using plastic in daily life.
Plastic is a material that the earth cannot digest. It will be there for hundreds of years.
Once in the environment (on or below soil or in water), plastic breaks down into smaller and smaller particles that attract toxic chemicals, are ingested by wildlife on land and in the ocean, and finally contaminate our food chain.
It simply means that the plastic you use and throw away will ultimately affect human health.
If it is disposed on cultivated land, the vegetables we consume will be contaminated.
If it is disposed in the river and sea, the river and sea food you consume will be contaminated.
If the rivers and lakes are contaminated, the water that goes to our homes will be contaminated.
Support “no plastic” lifestyle.
