Nanomaterials may pose serious health risk

Once confined to cutting-edge labs, nanotechnology has an increasingly pervasive place in everyday life. Its ultra-tiny engineered particles areĀ  now in as many as 10,000 products. A series by Andrew Schneider of AOL News shows a growing body of research suggests these nanomaterials pose significant and potentially fatal health risks including lung, heart and brain damage, cancer and birth defects. The federal government has done very little to address this emerging threat or regulate the use of nanomaterials.
