Nanoparticles - known and unknown health risks

target=_blank>Manmade nanoparticles range from the well-established
multi-ton production of carbon black and fumed silica for applications
in plastic fillers and car tyres to microgram quantities of fluorescent
quantum dots used as markers in biological imaging. As nano-sciences
are experiencing massive investment worldwide, there will be a further
rise in consumer products relying on nanotechnology. While benefits of
nanotechnology are widely publicised, the discussion of the potential
effects of their widespread use in the consumer and industrial products
are just beginning to emerge. This review provides comprehensive
analysis of data available on health effects of nanomaterials.
