Scientists warn on potential nanotech health risk

Abstract:
British scientists called on Thursday for more research into the safety of nanoparticles, following evidence they can lodge in the brain. Ken Donaldson, Professor of Respiratory Toxicology at the University of Edinburgh, said the real risk lay in breathing in designer materials so small that they can slip through membranes inside the body. He called for more experiments to establish how nanoparticles reached the brain and what the impact might be. But he dismissed the idea of a moratorium on nanotechnology.
