Nanotechnology: the next small thing?

Abstract:
Think small. Smaller. No, really, really small. It's unlikely your imagination has yet approached the scale of nanotechnology, a field that deals with particles mind-bogglingly tiny.

Nanotechnology creates miniscule particles that perform differently, physically and chemically, than their larger, natural counterparts. It's a multibillion-dollar industry with applications in medicine, cosmetics, supplements, food production, and more, but it's currently unregulated by the FDA—and that has some people hugely worried.
