Nanoparticles can damage the DNA of cells some distance away, even when the cells seem safe behind an impassable barrier of tissue, new research has found.

The experimental set-up was entirely artificial, and nothing like it occurs naturally in humans or animals. Nor are the nanoparticles in question used in any current treatments, experimental or otherwise.
