好好学习:用绿色标出。

Yellow means "questionable."

 

Highlights

• Great interest in potential toxicity of plastic particles towards human health is growing.

• Potential toxicity of micro and nanoplastics and leaching of additives.

• Consequences of bioaccumulation and biomagnification of plastic particles and adsorbed compounds.

Abstract

The presence and effects of plastic debris is increasingly investigated.  

评论:应该是are

 

The majority of studies focuses on microplastics (MPs), but few reports suggest that plastic fragments in the <100 nm size range, referred to as nanoplastics (NPs), may also be formed in the aquatic environment and further to humans

评论:Could also define MPs’ size range.

On the web:

“Majority” is one of those words that can be either singular or plural. Common sense works pretty well in deciding which. If you mean the word to describe a collection of individuals, then the word should be treated as plural: “The majority of e-mail users are upset about the increase in spam.” If the word is used to describe a collective group, then consider it singular: “A 90% majority is opposed to scheduling the next meeting at 6:00 A.M.” If you are uncertain which you mean, then choose whatever form sounds best to you; it’s not likely to bother many people.

“Majority” should be used only with countable nouns: “he ate the majority of the cookies,” but not “he ate the majority of the pie.” Instead say, “he ate most of the pie.”

This paper provides a review on routes of human exposure and potential effects of MPs and NPs to human health. 

 

MPs/NPs could potentially induce: physical damages through particles itself, and biological stress through MPs/NPs alone or leaching of additives (inorganic and organic). 

评论:Do MPs and NPs have the same effects, or not?

 

Future research should evaluate trophic transfer of MPs/NPs with their associated chemicals through the marine food web.

评论:What about US (humans)? This is what the title says, and I want to know the answer.
