    RoadsterRacer87 saidlets just hope that ecosystem doesn't get destroyed like the one that had the tree bark that fought cancer icon_confused.gif


    And lets just hope that big businesses who have invested a lot of money in recycling plastic won't block the mass use of fungi and we still continue to pollute the earth.

    Time to genetically modify them and put them out to sea to munch up the floating rubbish continent in the northern Pacific....

    With all the likely affects of upsetting and destroying the ecosystem even more, just like rabbits in Australia, and Lionfish out here in the caribbean, destroying the reefs...

    Very true G icon_sad.gif

    It will be a long wait for the plastic to biodegrade in the meantime.

    Also I don't think marine life can stomach it so it's killing them when they ingest it. icon_sad.gif

    Nope, and the nurdles finally wind up in the fish we eat and onto our beaches.. there is no such thing as a plastic-free beach.. The pieces are so small they look like sand, but every day I go to the beach I can find small bits if I look well enough....

    thus, we are all already heavily infested with plastic, our bodies are absolutely full of the chemicals that come from plastic, both from direct contact and indirectly through the food chain and many studies suggest it is the cause of increase male infertility and even the diabetes epidemic .. more health issues to come, caused of humans, by humans, and for humans...

    O how fun!

    Hold on....

    If man created plastic, and god created all the creatures, did god release a 'Plastic eating fungi' patch/ code update without telling us?

    Very cool, thanks for sharing.

    Nature is ancient, and modern, simultaneously. From that we can learn much.

    Green - My comment was more to do with the insane amount of sugary calories people are consuming with little to no exercise being a more likely cause of a diabetes epidemic rather than blaming plastics icon_smile.gif
