Should we ban clothing from our swimming pools?
There could be a major health risk from absorbing microplastics discharged from clothing in swimming pools.
Dr Peter Ross and others have found a great deal of evidence to show that microplastics are polluting our Oceans
http://www.vancouversun.com/…/Waters+coa…/9520815/story.html

In a 2011 paper Browne et al demonstrated that polyester and acrylic fibres found in habitats where there is sewage discharge resemble those used in clothing. Sampling of waste water from domestic
washing machines demonstrated that a single garment can produce more than 1900 fibres per wash. http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/es201811s

The House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee considered the effects of this pollution on health and the environment in a report published in August 2016 but failed to consider the risks in swimming pools. The report does recognise that there are health risks from this pollution.
