Consumer Guide to Warn That Nano Sunscreens May Threaten Human HealthWashington, DC | Posted on August 13th, 2007
Friends of the Earth has surveyed more than 120 sunscreen companies to determine whether their products contain nanoparticles, which are unregulated and pose potential threats to human health. The results of the survey, as well as information about nanoparticles and advice for consumers, are contained in Nanotechnology and Sunscreens: A Consumer Guide for Avoiding Nano Sunscreens, which will be released next Tuesday. Tuesday morning, Friends of the Earth will hold a telephone news conference to discuss the report's release and answer questions from members of the media.
