No safety threats have emerged yet. But one knows for sure because the broad health effects of nanoparticles have yet to be investigated. Most consumers have little knowledge of nanotech, and the products and their labeling aren't regulated.
Andrew Maynard, a physicist and science adviser to the Wilson Center project, said nanotechnology holds great promise for pharmaceuticas that will combat illnesses beyond conventional drugs. But he added the government hasn't acted quickly enough to protect the consumer.
Neal Woodbury, director of the Center for Bio-Optical Nanotechnology at Arizona State University, said he hopes concern about potential risks won't curtail scientific advancements in nano.
