Nanotechnology: Good or dangerous?
Nanoparticles could be the key to treating diseases or creating incredible new energy sources. They're already used in products such as computer processors, stain-resistant pants and cosmetics.
Within a decade, 2 million workers globally could be employed in nanotech-related jobs that produce more than a trillion dollars worth of goods annually, according to a government estimate.
