Comments on Nanomaterial Case Study: Nanoscale Silver in Disinfectant Spray

Abstract:
Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit public health research and advocacy organization, submits these comments regarding the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) draft report titled "Nanomaterial Case Study: Nanoscale Silver in Disinfectant Spray."

As EPA notes in its report, various nanomaterials, especially nanosilver formulations, are likely used in a variety of consumer products found in the homes, schools and offices of many Americans. These include athletic clothing, stuffed animals, pillows, toothpaste, cutlery, cutting boards and more. Yet significant questions remain about nanomaterials' long-term health effects, and EPA has acknowledged that the limited data currently available are insufficient to establish whether such products are safe.
