PROVIDENCE – Microplastics infiltrate all systems of mammals' bodies - including the brain - causing behavioural changes, according to a new study by scientists at the University of Rhode Island.

The research, published in the peer-reviewed International Journal of Molecular Science, involved exposing young and old mice to varying levels of microplastics in drinking water over the course of three weeks.

Synthetic textiles, such as polyester and nylon, are a leading source of microplastic pollution which has been indentified worldwide, from the peak of Mount Everest to uninhabited Antarctica.
