Govts urged to control technology
An environmental group urged governments yesterday to establish a new convention on technology control, including nanotechnology where there is still little information about the threat of "atomically modified" particles to the environment.
The threat is being compared with that of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which have caused a wide-ranging debate over their long-term safety to human health and the environment.
