Nanonuisance? Nanotechnology could revolutionise our lives, but some people are concerned by the darker undercurrents.

Abstract:
Some people believe a future planet full of microscopic machines and microscopic agents in food or packaging could be a good thing. Nanobots might save countless lives in surgery, nanopackaging could make food cheaper and last longer, feeding millions.

But like any new technology, there may be risks.
