A poison like no other

Simon, Matt
It's falling from the sky and is in the air we breathe. It's in our food, our clothes, and our homes. It's microplastic and it's everywhere - including in our own bodies. Scientists are just beginning to research how these tiny particles might threaten health but early studies are alarming. In A Poison Like No Other, Matt Simon reveals a whole new dimension to the plastics crisis, one even more disturbing than plastic bottles washing up on shores and grocery bags dumped in landfills. Dealing with discarded plastic is bad enough but when it starts to break down, the real trouble begins. The very thing that makes plastic so useful and ubiquitous - its toughness - means it never really goes away. It just gets smaller and smaller, eventually small enough to enter your lungs to penetrate a fish's muscle tissue before it becomes dinner.
