The study, led by the University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli”, adds to the growing body of evidence linking plastic pollution to public health risks.

According to the rector of the University, Gianfranco Nicoletti, the study underscores the institution’s commitment to high-level research and scientific excellence. The recognition from ANVUR, which has granted additional funding to support the university’s research efforts, further solidifies their position as a leading research institute.

The significance of the study on microplastics and nanoplastics has garnered attention both nationally and internationally, positioning the University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli” as a key player in the field of environmental health research. The findings serve as a reminder of the urgent need to address plastic pollution and its potential consequences on public health.
