Cancer Potential Through Nano-Particles In Certain Products
The medical field is by far one of the most complex fields of science in existence. The medical field essentially determines the fate of the world. They singlehandedly control the health of over a billion people on the planet Earth. The medical field is a field that requires endless amounts of…
First Work Place Injury from nanoparticles | NextBigFuture.com
A 26-year-old female chemist formulated polymers and coatings usually using silver ink particles. When she later began working with nickel nanoparticle powder weighed out and handled on a lab bench wi
Exposure to nanoparticles can play major role in development of cardiovascular diseases
Nanoparticles, extremely tiny particles measured in billionths of a meter, are increasingly everywhere, and especially in biomedical products. Their toxicity has been researched in general terms, but now a team of Israeli scientists has for the first time found that exposure nanoparticles (NPs) of silicon dioxide (SiO2) can play a major role in the development of cardiovascular diseases when the NP cross tissue and cellular barriers and also find their way into the circulatory system.
New tests for determining health and environmental effects of nanomaterials
A group of international experts from government, industry and academia have concluded that alternative testing strategies that don't rely on animals will be needed to cope with the wave of new nanomaterials emerging from the boom in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Toxic nanoparticles might be entering human food supply, study finds
Over the last few years, the use of nanomaterials for water treatment, food packaging, pesticides, cosmetics and other industries has increased. For example, farmers have used silver nanoparticles as a pesticide because of their capability to suppress the growth of harmful organisms. However, a growing concern is that these particles could pose a potential health risk to humans and the environment. In a new study, researchers at the University of Missouri have developed a reliable method for…
