Study shows that ingestion of microplastics alters gut microbiota

CSIC researchers have discovered that the digestion of microplastics can decrease the amount of beneficial bacteria present in the colon.


A group of researchers from the CSIC has discovered that the ingestion of microplastics reduces the bacterial diversity of the microbiota of the colon, in addition to producing an alteration of the balance in the microorganisms present. The study, published in Scientific Reports, has shown that ...
