China kicks off study on bio-safety of nanomaterials

Abstract:
The 21st century has witnessed the rapid development of nanoscience and technology. The nano-material, for example, have been manufactured in large scale and widely used in nearly 1,000 consumer goods and industrial products. Yet, due to their unique characteristics, nano-particles are found to have unusual interactions with the bio-system inside the human body, and disturb or regulate the life process, which might bring damages to people's health. To take the reins of the nano-technology, making it benefit, instead of hurt, our health is not only a challenge facing scientists, but also a critical issue for the governments of various countries when formulating an S&T strategy in frontier areas and public safety.
