A May 31, 2021 Canada Institut National de la recherche scientifique (INRS) news release reports that “… Nanoplastics—tiny plastic particles invisible to the naked eye—may exert an effect on nervous, immune, and reproductive systems of humans. To further explore this issue INRS has received funding … to assess how these contaminants affect the body’s inflammatory response … Inflammation affects the proteins responsible for the integrity of critical protective barriers of several biological systems … [Funding is provided] through the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada‘s (NSERC) and Environment and Climate Change Canada‘s (ECCC) Plastics science for a cleaner future funding opportunity …” #Microplastics #NanoPlastics @NSERC_CRSNG @environmentca #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic
