I just ran across this article. I'm going to assume that most of us work with plastics on a regular basis. Whether it's with a plastic filament 3D printer, sanding prints or machining plastic parts from sheet or tooling board, we're exposed to micro plastics through our various processes.

This article delves into how micro plastics can affect our lung cells. It's a pretty good read with some serious information.

Short story, wear a mask, have good ventilation and dust extraction in your shops.
