Rainfall in the Rocky Mountains contains microplastics - 2019

Microplastics in Mosquitoes - Sept 2018

Microplastics are getting into mosquitoes and contaminating new food chains
In the lab they fed larva microplastics. "Plastics were retained as the mosquitoes went through different life stages"
Mosquitoes are eaten by birds and fish


Unable to find anything about microplastics in vegetables as of June 2019 = no data


Purchased Zero Water countertop water filter - Nov 2019

Zerowater.com
many different sizes, all models include a small meter to test the amount of dissolved solids
Removes 99% of microplastics and 100% of Glyphosate, Fluoride, etc.
Amazon $29, 3,000 reviews - also WalMart, Home Depot, etc.
Great 2019 review compared many filters - taste, quality, ergonomics, etc found Zero to be best
Does removes beneficial Magnesium ions from the water (10 mg/liter)
   I take daily Magnesium supplements (400 mg/day), so I do not feel the need to remineralize the water
It is not practical in areas with hard water (there is a US harness map at their website)
   the filter stops at 18 grams of dissolved solids - will not last a month if there is hard water
Uses some of the chemicals and filters used in RO systems
you can recycle 2 filters for $10 - but you pay the postage
Got it - tastes great and the water looks far cleaner than tap water
