Revealing the true cost of microplastic and nanoplastic pollution
Microplastic and nanoplastic pollution (MNP) is becoming an ever-present concern amongst environmental issues that need to be addressed. However, little is known regarding how these plastics affect health, especially during early life and development. The EU-funded AURORA project aims to develop a framework for MNP risk assessment to evaluate its impact during pregnancy and early life. It will achieve this through in-depth testing and epidemiological data to reveal how MNP exposure can affect child development and health. The ultimate goal is to provide a comprehensive way to evaluate the true impact of MNP while informing European policy and improving quality of life.
