Dangerous or Benign?

Is nanotechnology dangerous or benign?
Nanotechnology offers great potential for benefit to humankind, and also brings severe dangers. While it is appropriate to examine carefully the risks and possible toxicity of nanoparticles and other products of nanoscale technology, the greatest hazards are posed by malicious or unwise use of general-purpose molecular manufacturing.
