Scientists have developed a new technique to detect microplastic in human organs

Rolf Halden at Arizona State University has stated that "we are now providing a research platform that will allow us and others to look for what is invisible – these particles too small for the naked eye to see" as the health risk "really resides in the small particles".

The impact of microplastics in organs on human health is not yet known, but the researches expect to find it in future patients. They now developed a technique to detect chemical traces and tested it on samples of organs such as the lung, liver and kidney. The researchers were able to detect the microplastics in all 47 samples.

Future studies on the health effects of "these non-biodegradable materials" will be conducted according to Varun Kelkar of Arizona State University.
