Microplastic Particle Pollution Study Has Been Withdrawn.


Do you remember the study  posted in the “Science” magazine that said microplastic particles had negative effects on young fish, including reducing their efforts to avoid predators?   It got a lot of ink and environmentalists calling plastics a plague.   Well, it seems that an investigation found that one of the authors intentionally fabricated data. 

The study has been withdrawn.
