An influential and controversial article discussing the effects of microbeads on sea life has been retracted by the journal Science after an independent review board found the study authors “guilty of scientific dishonesty。”

“;After an investigation, the Central Ethical Review Board in Sweden has recommended the retraction of the Report “Environmentally relevant concentrations of microplastic particles influence larval fish ecology,” by Oona M。 Lönnstedt and Peter Eklöv, published in Science on 3 June 2016,”; the press release wrote。

Microbeads have been ****** a much-needed emergence in the spotlight, due to the damage they are inflicting on the environment。 Microbeads are manufactured solid plastic particles measuring less than five millimeters in their largest dimension that are relatively common as an exfoliating agent in cosmetics and personal care products, such as soap, facial scrub, and toothpaste。 When they’;re washed down the drain, they almost always make their way into rivers and canals, resulting in plastic particle water pollution, where they can be ingested by local wildlife。 To make things even worse, due to their geometry, they tend to absorb and concentrate pollutants like pesticides and polycyclic hydrocarbons。

A variety of wildlife ca*****take microbeads for their food source, from small fish, amphibians and turtles to birds and larger mammals。 Microbeads also aren’;t eliminated upon ingestion, so they just accumulate higher up the food chain。 To sum it up, they’;re bad for the environment, and they do a lot of damage。 There has been some controversy, with one study suggesting that relevant levels of polyethylene microbeads had no impact on larva, but overall it seems that there is sufficient evidence to establish the negative impact of microbeads。 However, that doesn’;t justify misleading science。 Many studies have found that microbeads negatively affect aquatic animals
