The problem is not that microbeads are a issue in themselves, but more like that thy are a great absorbent of other chemicals. So it makes it a lot easier for chemicals to neter the food chain since many animals would eat fish or drink water that's contaminated with microbeads. And these are chemicals that would otherwise either dissipate or disintegrate from the water treatment cycle or UV rays outside.
