dc.description.abstractPlastic pollution is a global problem that impacts land, water, and air. Over the last fifty years the increase in plastic consumption has raised many environmental issues. Plastic in the ocean may harbor human bacterial pathogens (Marine Env. Res. 2016, 120:1). Plastic may also harbor persistent organic pollutants such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs, Env. Sci. Technol. 2012 47:1646) which may enter the food web and have a harmful impact on human health. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) is the most abundant plastic pollutant.en_US
