How can respiratory problems be prevented when a lab worker deals with particles so small they pass through skin or blood vessels?
That's the kind of issue industrial hygienists face as nanoparticles increasingly show up in glare-reducing coatings on eyeglasses, dental bonding agents, cosmetics, inks, wound dressings, or on tennis balls to make them last longer.
It also explains why many of the 7,000 industrial hygienists who will arrive in Philadelphia starting today and next week for the American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition are signing up for nanotechnology sessions.
