The problem of microplastics is homework that needs to be solved before it becomes out of control and can no longer be used. Even today, water is contaminated through urbanization and development, and in the case of the sea, 3/1 is contaminated from plastic. The plastic that flows into the sea is exposed to sunlight for long periods of time, breaking it into invisible small pieces. Its size is so small that fish can mistake it for food, and they accumulate in the bodies of the fish and then rise to the table.
According to the United Nations, 80% of the microplastics in discarded water come from discarded fibers, 17% from cleansers and cosmetics, 2% from discarded plastic bags, and 1% from styrofoam. So, do microplastics go straight to the sea through the sewer? Not necessarily. This is because the water flows to the water treatment facility, but 10% of the treated water cannot be filtered and enters the sea. This means that from the tap water we use to marine life, etc., it is not safe from plastic at all.
Microplastic refers to a solid plastic with a size of 5 mm or less, similar to the thickness of a hair. According to a report by the World Conservation Federation of Nature, microplastics account for 15-31% of the 9.5 million tons of plastic waste thrown into the sea every year. It is said that particles from synthetic fibers and automobile tires wander around the sea and have a great influence on the human body and nature. North America and Europe, countries with efficient water treatment and waste treatment facilities, also said that fine plastic particles are a more important cause of marine pollution.
Microplastics come into contact with the respiratory and digestive organs and are absorbed by the human body. The absorbed plastics cause inflammation, suppression of immune cells, and necrosis, and their effects may vary depending on the nature of the material of the plastic. Once exposed to the respiratory tract, it can cause interstitial lung disease, leading to coughing, shortness of breath, and decreased lung function. Plastic bisphenol A binds to estrogen receptors and affects thyroid hormones, which can cause pancreatic function decline, obesity, and cardiovascular disease.
A filtration system that can be used in general homes is a reverse osmosis water purification system. The reverse osmosis filter can filter down to 0.001 microns, thus removing all microscopic plastics. Reverse osmosis treatments are effective for removing hazardous bacteria, germs, viruses, and heavy metals in the water content, however, the treatment eliminated minerals and turning the water into acidic. This genuine procedure causes a problem for pH balance in the body which alkaline balance is important for functioning our body healthy. Biocera Antioxidant Alkaline water filters can secure these problems by adding minerals to water and increasing the pH in water. Bioceramic mineral crystals inside Biocera Antioxidant Alkaline water filters create the acidic demineralized water content into pH balanced longevity spring water, generates the living-giving water with auto therapy, increased oxygen concentration, far-infrared radiation, abundant antioxidant hydrogen concentration, and more. The water passed through Biocera A.A. (Antioxidant Alkaline) water filters resembles just like longevity miracle spring water in Tibet, China, and Lourdes in France. Biocera eagerly struggles to pursuit the ideal momentum of producing healthy longevity spring-like water to our worldwide customers.
