Around 90 per cent of water in plastic bottles was found to contain something called microplastics that could be carcinogenic.

The study was conducted on plastic bottles in nine countries including the US, China and Thailand.

Dr Wanchai Satyawutipong said consumers in Thailand need not be concerned – international standards were followed.

A review has been ordered by the World Health Organisation in the wake of the report.

Dr Wanchai said that Thailand would monitor the situation and any new measures that might be decided would be strictly followed in the future.
