The researchers of National Institute of Standards and Technology, US reported that the plastic in these materials produced each litre of liquid you drink in it. It sounds quite unusual but the consumption of the beverages in these cups are so much that prolonged usage of these cups can be fatal. After several analysis researchers have found that the size of nano particles was between 30 nanometres and 80 nanometres and few above 200 nanometres.
