Govt to check nanotech safety
The (Japanese) government has decided to evaluate the safety of materials produced using nanotechnology, a production method expected to become a core industrial technology in this century.
Under the plan, the effect of nanotech materials on human health and the environment will be examined to establish safety standards and new legislation dealing with the new materials, government sources said.
In cooperation with Western countries where studies are under way on the safety of nanotechnology, the government will examine the possibility that nanotech products may be dangerous and what the risks, if any, are.
