Plastic is probably in your food or drinking water, and now scientists fear it might be flowing through your veins. A small study published last month found that the blood of 17 out of 22 people contained microplastics — plastic fragments smaller than a sesame seed. It’s the first time those tiny bits of fossil-fuel product have been detected in human blood, but the discovery is no surprise to plastics researchers. “Plastics are everywhere,” Rolf Halden, the director of the Biodesign Center for Environmental Health Engineering at Arizona State University, told Insider. Previous studies have found microplastics in humans’ food, drinking water, poop, placentas, and lungs, and drifting through the air we breathe.

Approaching sustainability through landscapes helps appreciate the value of the diversity of human ways to live with nature that exists today. On the basis of fieldwork research in Japan, we explore the landscapes of natural parks, Satoyama, and permaculture, all three recognized as sustainable and of high biodiversity value despite showing significant differences in terms of nature protection and landscape management strategies.
Beyoncé has been on a roll with Instagramming her outfits. On the heels of her Alessandra Rich Vegas set and custom Area pantsuit were this little mesh minidress and matching gloves in a sculptural print. The coordinates were made specially for Bey by UK-based concept store Auné’s in-house label. The brand posted a celebratory shot with a caption that read, “The day has finally come *I know it’s an early post but couldn’t contain myself* Thank you @zerinaakers for reaching out and requesting this look for Beyoncé. It’s not often I fangirl over people but this is someone who I grew up listening to and is so ICONIC! My year has been made 💚.”
