- All those cute soaps and exfoliates seem to be coming back to haunt us.
- Apparently our water plants don’t have small enough filters to catch these microbeads.
- So they talk about how the fish in Lake Erie are eating this crap.
- Oh, and they are being found in the oceans as well. WONDERFUL.
- The beads are made of plastic and they absorb pollutants from the water and air.
- Those include pesticides, PCB’s, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
- Those last two have been linked to cancer in people.
So this is the kind of crap that apparently NO ONE looks into before creating this crap. But I doubt that, because SOMEONE is smart and said, “Hey, where do these go after they wash down the drain?” And the company said, “Who cares? We are here to make products which make money.” You may think that sounds a bit out of line, but I highly doubt it’s that far fetched.
One thing it didn’t mention was OUR DRINKING WATER! They just talked about fish. Well, guess what if the fish are getting it, then what is stopping my drinking water from getting some? They make no mention of our drinking water filtration sizes.
