We used to think that plastic could never degrade over time, until we found that it actually decomposes into microplastics while releasing toxic chemicals. These chemicals seep into our soil and water, and our fish and livestock ingest the microplastics. This means that our food and water contain plastics and their byproducts, which we now have in our bodies. It gets more interesting though: our plastics are now airborne, which means that we are also breathing in microplastics that reside in our lungs.
