Environmental journal publishes controversial buckyball study

Abstract:
The journal Environmental Health Perspectives this week published Manufactured Nanomaterials Induce Oxidative Stress in Brain of Juvenile Largemouth Bass, written by Southern Methodist University environmental toxicology lecturer Eva Oberdorster. "Considering the benefits of nanotech, I think it's actually a great trade-off. Imagine if we can make more-efficient fuel cells and decrease our dependence on highly toxic fossil fuels," Oberdorster told Small Times in an e-mail. "But that doesn't sell newspapers. Scary stuff like 'the buckyballs will eat your brains' sells much better. Doesn't matter that it's not correct, as long as it sells papers." (more on earlier article)
