Recently, the British newspaper The Times revealed that plastics have already been found on the most isolated place of our planet, in the Pacific Point of Nemo. It has been discovered earlier also in the deepest ocean ditches, remote uninhabited islands and polar regions.

As a synthetic material it practically does ont decompose. Some - and only temporary - relief is the recycling of plastics.
This way, however, it is not possible to process all the plastic that is no longer useful. Its microparticles have got virtually everywhere. Also to the human body, where its settling down and preparing problems.

Microplastics, small plastic debris of a maximum of five millimeters, "mischievously" penetrated into drinking water practically all over the planet. Last year, Orb Media published shocking results of its study: scientists analyzed drinking water from twelve countries around the world and got shocked - 83 percent of the samples were contaminated with plastic fibers.

The worst situation is in the United States. Microplastics were found in both tap and packed water.

The tiny plastic fiber was not missing in any of the 24 tested German beers.

It has appeared in sugar, honey and many other foods.

In Paris, they found that microscopic plastic dust, probably from tires, literally falls from the sky - the city gets ten tonnes of it each year.

While I appreciate your concern and indeed there are many environmental dangers but our future is not on this Earth and in this body we are eagerly expecting God's kingdom to be established and before that just as it is written, everything will be made new!

But until then, we and our children will have to live here, breath here and drink here...

Also animals we have to care for.

Yes indeed but thanks be to God for he is in charge and very much in control, he knows how to provide and or deliver those who are his or else he can always make it up to us in the age to come. Praise The Lord!

Trofimus,

Since not many of us speak Czech, could you try to support your posts with articles in English please?

You're a trusted member of the community, and we have no reason to disbelieve you, but we simply can't read things for ourselves if they're in Czech.

Thanks.

Thats why I always try to translate it (at least in google translate).

The source I attach to it is not for you to read (I know you will understand nothing), but just for a practice in quoting news, so that the source is visible.

The original article is a composition of some article in Times (this could be possible to find, maybe) and some other original work, videos and information, so this rest will be harder to find in English...

Since plastics have replaced just about everything non-plastic, it is too late to get concerned about this.

And for Christians, the bigger concern should be the souls of those who may die outside of Christ as a result of plastic contamination (or any other cause).

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Mt 10:28)

I remember seeing pro-plastic commercials on TV about 15 years ago.
