This the final video in a three-part series. Here are the first two in case you missed them: Microplastic Contamination and Seafood Safety (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/microplastic-contamination-and-seafood-safety) and Are Microplastics in Seafood a Cancer Risk? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/are-microplastics-in-seafood-a-cancer-risk).
This isnâ€™t the first time Iâ€™ve touched on the issue of seafood and chemical pollutants:
