Nano is now

Abstract:
Risk assessment left in the dust as countless products using nanomaterials reach the shelves.

If nanotechnology is a racehorse, then industry is a jockey whipping it along to market at a breakneck pace. The regulatory community is a poor old trainer limping along in the backstretch, pleading to wrap the horse's legs for safety.

Most consumers have little idea what nanotechnology is, much less that it has already vaulted from the laboratory to the grocery store, the cosmetic counter and the appliance department. Meanwhile, the market value of products incorporating nanotechnology is anticipated to explode from $50 billion in 2006 to $2.6 trillion by 2014.
