Double-edged potential of nanoscience

Abstract:
Helmut Kaiser concluded that "the potentials are immense, and the risks too". Innovest says that companies that do not manage both the actual risks and the perceived ones could suffer public backlash and considerable brand impairment.

... some scientists argue that nanotechnology should not be treated in isolation. Mark Welland, head of the Nanoscience Centre at the University of Cambridge, says: "Ideas that a taskforce or new regulator are necessary are misplaced. If the US Food and Drug Administration is giving approval for a new drug, it would just need to look at the nanotechnology aspect in addition to what it always does."
