Skip The Spray-on Sunscreen? Widely Used Nanoparticles Could Cause Cancer: Study

Abstract:
It's a fact of life that nanoparticles are everywhere: from sunscreen to underwear to performance wear - they are an invisible part of everyday life. Nanotechnology has made some promising inroads, but could these undetectable bits of material be harmful to our health? Recent studies however have raised serious concerns about the health impacts of nanoparticles in a plethora of consumer products and now, researchers at UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center have discovered that titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles could cause genetic damage.
