Lebanon’s tap water highly contaminated
Lebanon was revealed to have the second-most contaminated water supply in the world, behind the United States. An investigation released on September 5 by Orb Media, found that 83 percent of the world’s tap water is contaminated by microplastics or tiny plastic fibres. Lebanon’s tap water was the second-most polluted in the world, at 93.8 percent to the US’ s 94.4 percent. New studies have found that the tiny plastic fibers are everywhere, not just in the oceans, but also on land, in food, in the air, and in tap water—leading to urgent calls for research into what effects they are having on public health.
