Nanotechnology, it turns out, has a dark side that no one in the
industry wants to talk about. New research suggests that nanoparticles
could be harmful: fish exposed to nanoparticles duffered brain damage.
Within 48 hours after being exposed to a very low concentration of
nanoparticles, the fish produced brain damage that resembles Alzheimer's
disease. But you won't hear that from the people involved in nanotech --
which seems to be anybody who wants a grant these days -- because they
only want you to hear about the good news, not the bad.
much good news, though: nanotechnology has so far been little more than
hype. In fact, nobody can even agree on what nanotech really is. As the
saying goes in the industry, "Nano is anything that I'm working
on, but nothing that you're working on." Frankly, just
about anything can be called nano, and if you scan the nanotech
headlines these days, you'll see what I'm talking about.
