I Summary: China tested fifteen brands of tablet salt that are popular, those that was tested had micro sized plastic in it. The found out one of the reasons for this was that the ocean is highly contaminated with plastic that us humans create. Some scientists even believe that the plastic in salt is cause by salt processing. Plastic may become a health concern because plastic contains a big amount of dangerous chemicals. A person in china will ingest around 1,000 plastic micro particles.
I think it is very scary that people are consuming 1,000 amount of particles annually. I can't imagine how that can impact their health who consumes salt daily. I feel like they should do something about it because plastic contains a bunch of harmful and dangerous chemicals they is not made for them to consume. Salt is basically in every meal so this must be very careful and the government should try their best to get rid of the plastic. I find it scary how people will still sell salt knowing their is probably plastic in there.
