Nanotechnology Safety

Nanotechnology is a controlling tool for opposing cancer and is being put to use in further applications that may reduce pollution, energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and help avoid diseases. NCI's Union for Nanotechnology in Cancer is working to guarantee that nanotechnologies for cancer requests are developed responsibly. As with any new technology, the safety of nanotechnology is continuously being verified. The small size, high reactivity, and unique tensile and magnetic properties of nanomaterials the same properties that drive interest in their biomedical and industrial applications have raised concerns about implications for the environment, health, and safety
