excerpt-

Nanotechnology is a powerful new platform technology for taking apart and reconstructing nature at the atomic and molecular level. Just as the size and chemical characteristics of manufactured nanoparticles can give them unique properties, those same new properties--tiny size, vastly increased surface area to volume ratio, high reactivity--can also create unique and unpredictable human health and environmental risks.

Though there may be some validity to this - which may be difficult to determine....

Funny they don't mention the new medical supplies - like wound dressings - that contain silver. It's okay for the medical community and pesticide companies to use silver technology, but not the public?

Silver has been used for ages in cutlery and other applications because of it's antimicrobial properties. But in today's world, the motto seems to be to ban everything, whether there's merit to the banning or not. Meanwhile, drug companies continue to manufacture legal poisons that end up in the water supply, etc.

I don't trust this analysis.... but then, I trust virtually no 'authority' on much of anything anymore.

Tracy - they did mention the other products with nano silver... The big problem was that there's a clothing washer that rinses clothing with nano silver. The waste water goes into the environment & acts as a microbe killer. This is the big issue besides whether it's safe for human consumption...

That's what they mean by the silver being a pesticide, I believe.

It's sort of like the issue with germicidal soaps & hand rinses. I don't see all these antimicrobial dish soaps & hand cleaners like I used to... They may have removed Triclosan from widely used products but I haven't really been up on all of that.

I bought a hand sanitizer the other day & it has alcohol not Triclosan.

PS - I also think the issue is whether anything that's a nano particle is safe...

We don't know how nano size things will effect us or the environment...
