Earlier this year, the World Health Organization (WHO) published a state-of-the-science report to assess the potential health risks associated with exposure to microplastic. The report, “Dietary and inhalation exposure to nano- and microplastic particles and potential implications for human health,” builds off the WHO’s previous report on the potential effects of microplastics in drinking water published in 2019. An international group of experts was assembled by the WHO to review the available data and publish the current report.
Join us as three of the report’s authors, Alan Boobis of Imperial College London, Todd Gouin of TG Environment Consulting, and Stephanie Wright of King’s College London discuss the results and the future challenges and research needs of the report.
