Comp Time with Terese Berceau

Abstract:
Nanoparticles -- those sub-optical materials found in more than 500 consumer products -- are being eyed by some lawmakers and regulators as a potential public health risk. Little-to-nothing is known about the long-term effects these particles might have on human health or the environment. No one even knows in what quantities they're being produced.

Wisconsin Rep. Terese Berceau (D-Madison) has called on the Departments of Natural Resources, Health and Family Services, and Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection to require private companies that manufacture nanoparticles to disclose the types of particles they're making and in what amount.
