• Scientists around the world as part of sea salt are plastic
The mankind has invented something very durable, and has been produced from this material one-time thing. We are talking about the plastic, the term of which the final collapse of one hundred to five hundred years, depending on its type, but at current production rates of all the earth will be covered with plastic before being first things begin to decompose. To disintegrate the plastic starts in a few years, including in the food chain and poisoning everything around.
According to the latest year in the waters of the world ocean gets about 12, 7 million tons of plastic waste, which is equivalent to dumping of garbage truck every minute, resulting in the oceans produce large garbage patches, and now these islands, there are five. Due to the fact that birds, fish, animals die, swallowing garbage floating in the sea, taking particles of polyethylene for food, we have already resigned. Today, plastic has been found in every pack of sea salt sold in the shops of Great Britain, Europe, the US and China for human consumption every day. These facts shout that plastic pollution had gone too far, and it's time to stop worrying about global warming and to think about the issue more urgent.
The most surprising that scientists can not estimate the harm caused to the human body, entering it through the air, water, food, and now salt, plastic, since more or less precise research is needed a control group of people not exposed the effects of synthetic polymers, but on planet Earth these simply do not exist.
At last count in the world every minute sold one million plastic bottles, not including plastic bags, recycling and processing of which is much expensive its production, which is why polyethylene and polypropylene filled the world around us, and now under the guise of salt made their way into our bodies. Three Pillars of conscious consumption no longer save the world from turning blue planet in plastic: the principles of reduction, reuse, recycling must be supplemented by another - a complete rejection of the acquisition, but not salt, and disposable packaging. The truth is that the glass bottle can again become a bottle, or can be used many times, but no miracle will not turn plastic bottle or cup back into the container.
