(undated) — A new study is finding high levels of microplastics in the fancy sea salts sold around the world. A Greenpeace environmental study analyzed 39 salt brands from more than 20 countries finding that 90 percent of them contained microplastics, the highest concentrations of that appear in sea salt. Microplastics are tiny pieces of plastic that contribute to plastic contamination and emission. Greenpeace said the findings show there is “no escape from this plastics crisis.” At present, it is unknown how microplastics might affect human health.
