The downside of nanotechnology

Abstract:
Gwen Ruta: Government should dramatically increase funding to develop the basics of nanotechnology risk research, which companies can build upon for product-specific risk evaluations. Regulators need to review and update safety and health regulations designed for a world before nanotechnology, considering the full lifecycle of nanomaterials through production, use, and disposal.
