Industry urged to be open about nano testing methods

Abstract:
"We are calling for industry to put the methods they use to test the safety of products containing free nanoparticles, such as some cosmetics, into the public domain because this is one particular area where there is some uncertainty about safety," said Professor Ann Dowling of the Royal Society.

Professor Anthony Seaton, an emeritus professor of environment and occupational medicine at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, said there was no special reason to suggest that products using nanotechnology would be dangerous. But he added that industry should be much clearer about what tests have been done.
