Nanotech advances need more safety screening-study

Abstract:
... without a full and continuing assessment of those risks, the nascent industry expected to employ thousands of people and generate billions of dollars in revenue may be hobbled by public opposition or corporate mishaps, a study by investment house Lux Research concludes.

The Lux study said that without hard and defensible safety data, the industry faces the danger of being challenged by both serious scientists and political activists like those who disrupted scientific conferences in the UK last year and Chicago this year.
