In a Woodland warehouse cluttered with particle detectors and chambers where mice inhale smoke, UC Davis researchers are trying to learn if a swirl of carbon with tantalizing promise could turn lethal.
Will it lodge in the lungs, causing scars that hinder breathing? Will its cousins climb up nerves in the nose to reach the brain?
Or will some of the weirdest little stuff ever created by humans stream into medicine, electronics, oil refining and food packaging with little or no effect on human health?
