An EPA for the 21st century

Abstract:
The agency needs to make this leap now -- with the same sense of urgency top Democratic and Republican leaders of Congress's House Science Committee called for last year when they said that the administration was moving too slowly on a research agenda to understand the environmental, health, and safety implications of nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology holds enormous promise for new medical advances-in cancer, Alzheimer's, diabetes, and Parkinson 's disease. Scientists have demonstrated how nanotechnology can be used to restore nerve and spinal cord function. It portends cheap solar energy and water purification on a large scale.
