Microplastics found in breast milk of 75 percent of new mums

Microplastics have been discovered in human breast milk for the first time, scientists have warned. Infants are especially vulnerable to chemical pollutants and researchers say more tests are urgently needed to understand the impact. The minute man-made pieces were seen in samples taken from 34 healthy mothers a week after they had given birth in Rome. Microplastics were detected in 75 percent of them.
