People who seafood may also eating tiny pieces of plastic. The small pieces of plastic are microplastics. They are tiny pieces of plastic from the waste and garbage that in the seas and oceans. They are usually less than a millimeter wide. They are more and more common in seafood such as oysters and mussels as well as other kinds of shellfish. Scientists there are more than five trillion pieces of microplastic in our oceans. More and more are added every day. Professor Richard Thompson, a marine biologist at Exeter University, : "Hundreds of marine organisms plastic at the sea surface or in the water…and many of those encounters harmful if not fatal."

Researchers from the University of Ghent in Belgium a study into microplastics and marine life. They believe people up to 11,000 pieces of plastic in their food each year. The researchers said that only around 60 of these pieces stay in our body and the rest will down the toilet. Sixty pieces of microplastic may not a lot but it will up over time. They could eventually bad for our health. Things are likely to worse. The researchers added that by the end of the century, seafood eaters could as many as 780,000 pieces of plastic a year. That is likely to many health problems. Scientists say we to recycle more and find alternatives to plastic.
