    Depending on the micro beed’s blood test research needed

  2. As a kid, a few legos and small toy parts. After that none.

  3. Not as much as fish in the oceans do

  4. I am worried about ingesting plastic.
    I am not worried about ingesting other chemicals with rushed production and unknown long term side effects.

    one time I swallowed a tine of a plastic fork. Another time I swallowed a condom
