Nanorisk nanotechnology newsletter deals with toxicity of carbon nanomaterials

(Nanowerk News) The February issue of nanoRISK looks at the continued uncertainty about the toxicity of carbon-based nanomaterials. As always, it includes numerous briefs on papers, initiatives, and upcoming events.
Nanowerk’s recently launched newsletter provides a wealth of risk-related nanotechnology information, compiled in one comprehensive, easy-to-read newsletter, on scientific research, regulatory updates and informed opinion about the risks posed by engineered nanoparticles and what is being done about them. A free copy of the premier edition of the bimonthly print newsletter is available at www.nanorisk.org.
“This newsletter is not about stopping nanotechnology or scaring people,” says Michael Berger, nanoRISK editor. “It is about providing a wealth of nanotechnology information, compiled in one comprehensive, easy-to-read newsletter, on scientific research, regulatory updates and informed opinion about the risks posed by engineered nanoparticles and what is being done about them.”
nanoRISK supports the debate on a very real and immediate issue – the fact that engineered nanoparticles are already finding their way from laboratories into commercial products and yet nobody really knows the effects they could have on living beings and the environment. Current toxicological and eco-toxicological risk assessment methodologies are not suited to the potential hazards associated with engineered nanoparticles.
Contents of previous and the current issue are available on the newsletter’s website.
