Nanostuff vs. nanotechnology

Here in Michigan, researchers are looking at "how certain kinds of nanoparticles damage cell membranes enough to cause cell death in some cases and how the damage can be prevented." The answer is you don't just pump the stuff blindly into the body. You engineer them, or make the little beasts do what you want them to do. One researcher says, "Not only does engineering make them less harmful, but it also makes them better at what we want them to do. You don't lose anything; it's all a gain."
