Controversial study points to need for more federal research

As scientists and others continue to debate the significance of a recent study on the toxic effects of nanoparticles, the controversy has highlighted a growing need for federal research into the environmental and health effects of engineered nanomaterials, policy makers and others say. “What (the study) will do is heighten the interest in funding initial research on nanotoxicology so we can find out what synthetic nanostructures are safe and what structures raise environmental and human health issues,” said Tom Kalil.
