Plastics not only pose a risk to the environment, but possibly cause harm to human health as well. We eat, drink and breathe plastic — that can’t be good for us. That’s why the Plastic Soup Foundation took the initiative to gather the most notable scientists, frontrunners, and changemakers in the form of a new alliance: the Plastic Health Coalition.
In the coming years, ZonMw will initiate 9-14 research projects which will be carried out with a focus on microplastics and human health. The Programme Committee Microplastics & Health was presented in 2018 and will examine the various research proposals that are submitted.
