Might look healthy. But researchers from Vienna have detected toxic substances in lettuce.

Microplastics have long since made their way into our food. For example, if fish eat the small particles, they end up on our plates. Scientists led by environmental scientist Thilo Hofmann from the Center for Microbiology and Environmental Systems Science at the University of Vienna have now also detected toxic substances from the abrasion of car tires in lettuce.

Wind, sewage sludge and waste water carry the tire particles to the fields, where the pollutants they contain can get into the vegetables.
