First evidence of damage from plastics on humans, double heart risks – Medicine

Nanoplastics were identified for the first time in the atherosclerotic plaques of the arteries and for the first time the damage to human health was proven with very serious effects. This was revealed by a study conceived and coordinated by the University of Campania ‘Vanvitelli’, in collaboration with various bodies. Published in The New England Journal of Medicine, the study provides proof of the dangers of plastics: the ‘polluted’ plaques are more inflamed and cause a more than 2-fold increase in the risk of heart attacks and strokes. The study is accompanied by an editorial that defines the discovery as “revolutionary”.
