As nanotechnology becomes more commonplace in food, drugs and cosmetics, the FDA must revise its regulatory standards to assess the emerging technology, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
An agency task force reported recently that nanotechnology, based on those tiny particles so small that they're measured in billionths of a meter, is already being used in consumables, adding benefits and unknown risks to humans and the environment.
The task force concluded that the FDA has inadequate tools to judge the impact of nanotech products on the human body and the environment. The commission made several recommendations for regulating the nascent industry.
