Industry radio silence is not moving nanotechnology debate forward

Abstract:
No one is expecting food manufacturers to share commercially sensitive information about nanotechnology projects, but adopting a policy of radio silence on the subject will only reinforce the perception that they have something to hide, according to experts gathered at an industry workshop.

Much of the debate at last week's workshop, which was organised by Leatherhead Food Research (LFR), focused on how to prevent nanotechnology from turning into a PR disaster for the food industry.

And the only way to do this was to talk about it openly and honestly, suggested LFR consultant microscopist Kathy Groves, joint project leader of LFR's NanoWatch initiative.
