Three experts on microplastics discuss the latest findings from the WHO in this webinar co-hosted the American Chemistry Council and ILSI Europe.
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.
On January 2023, the American Chemistry Council (ACC) and ILSI Europe invited three of the report’s authors, Todd Gouin of TG Environment Consulting, and Alan Boobis and Stephanie Wright of Imperial College London, to discuss the results and the future challenges and research needs.
