“In a word of caution on the burgeoning microplastic pollution, a first-of-its-kind review by IIT Madras found residential buildings to be a major point source causing it. The study also details the toxicity effects of these microplastics in aquatic organisms & human beings”.
This is really a very great initiative by the IIT Madras as Microplastics which are also called as MPs are regarded as a global issue due to their toxicity effects on aquatic organisms & human beings.
As we all know that fish is a vital origin of human protein which is necessary for body growth for all ages of humans. Contamination of fish by MPs is a major hazard that requires special focus and needs to be stopped as soon as possible.
Microplastics which are also known as MPs are tiny plastic pieces less than 5 millimetres across. And you all must know that MPs are found in the deepest parts of the planet, like the Mariana Trench, and at the top of Mount Everest so how can we not say that they are not in our bodies. Humans may experience oxidative stress, immune system disruption, cytotoxicity, neurotoxicity, and transfer of MPs to other tissues after being exposed to them.
They are released into the environment from various means and some of the most frequent method through which these Microplastics came into the nature are mentioned below:
According to many researchers:
The negative consequences of microplastics on species which can vary from interruption of biological functions to death. It means that it is a direct death the human beings are itself creating. Not only this but MPs are causing detrimental effects on species which are outlined to provide a solid research foundation for sustainable MPs toxicological investigations and to evaluate the potential for huge ecological disruption.
Depending on the nature of MPs, after intake further the MPs poisoning are categorised as follows:
Some of the ways through which one can reduce this spreading of Microplastics are mentioned below:
And do you all know how much microplastics are in our homes? As in our daily lives plastic filters for washing machines. Hence, the measurement indicated that the family are likely each breathing in between 2,000–7,000 microplastics per day.
Hence, microplastics can float in the water column, settle into marine sediments, or be consumed by organisms, enter the marine food web and are found globally in the marine environment at all depths, remote locations such as Arctic sea ice and also in coastal areas.

I am amazed by the fact that how can one single organisation be so resourceful. They helped me from the beginning till the end. 9 faced a lot of problems hurdles as they say it, but they had a solution for them all.

May God bless them
My association with Mr Kanhaiya Agarwal, the founder of Formfees, a niche start-up in education space, goes back to school days. Kanhaiya and I were school friends and I have watched him closely during his evolution from a young charming boy to a hard core entrepeneur. During my preparation for management entrance exams, Kanhaiya and his team at Formfees helped me immensely in finalizing the startegy and fine tuning the execution. It is because of he and his team that I have been able to secure my dream seat at XLRI. I wish Formfees all the best for all its future endeavours.
When I Coming to know about 'Formfees', I saw in it an opportunity to keen aside all the queries regarding application processes with the Formfees team which is home to proper & correct information for all B School entrances along with that they also help me a lot with my GD PI preparations which made my way my dream College IIM AHMEDABAD to KUDOS to Kanhaiya Sir & Formfees.
