研究發現,一個擁有世界最原始生態環境的北極偏遠地區,當地海鳥產的蛋含有多種塑膠化劑及添加劑,估計海鳥是從捕食其他海洋生物時攝取這些塑膠垃圾含有的化學物,並傳到卵中。現在仍要更多研究去評估這些化學物對鳥類的傷害,但這些化學物會影響人類荷爾蒙、內分泌系統及出現畸胎等,因此在兒童玩具已被禁用。

eggs laid by sea birds in a remote area in the high arctic contains chemicals that are added to plastic. it is believed these seabirds receive these chemicals from plastic debris from hunting for fish, squid and shrimp, and then passed to the eggs. more research is needed to find out how these chemical will affect the bird, but these chemicals could disrupt hormones and the endocrine system, and could lead to birth defects; these chemicals have been banned in children toys.
