Tried to find further information on the effect the billions of particles of plastic have on the body. Apparently many teabags only hold together because of plastic woven into them.

I wanted to get further information what actually happens in the body with the plastic and there is nothing out there.

Would the body push the plastic micro particles to one part of the body and form some kind of Arthritis for example or would the plastic be swimming around in the blood stream, settle in some cells or even the brain?

I tried to cut off the tea bag and just use the contents, but that tea in tea bags is just too powdery to be used in a tea strainer.

The only afforable solution is to use loose tea with a tea strainer. A little bit more work but well worth it I suppose.
