Nanoparticles are killers - study
BOFFINS AT THE University of California have come to the conclusion that magnetic nanoparticles may be hazardous to your health.
Now if you are like the rest of us and are partial to a few magnetic nanoparticles after a nice dinner this will be bad news.
The boffins worked out that iron oxide particles less than 10 nanometers in diameter stunt the growth of nerve cells. We guess this means they should never be smoked by pregnant women.
