Nanoparticles cause cell damage in humans' intestinal tracts, then get passed back into environment

8/6/2014 - At one-billionth of a meter, nanotechnology begins. At this size, nanoparticles cannot be seen with the naked eye and are even invisible to common microscopes. This does not mean that nanoparticles are irrelevant in the physical world. In fact, new research suggests that nanoparticles in food, medicine...

Silver nanoparticle solutions can treat difficult mouth infections

6/27/2014 - The monetary value of silver pales in comparison to gold, but silver's medicinal value cannot be beaten when it comes to fighting off infections. In an emergency situation, colloidal silver is not only more valuable than a stash of gold but also more powerful than the medical system's gold standard...

Chemical companies now adding untested nanoparticles to pesticide formulas

1/13/2014 - Industrial agriculture is undergoing yet another major transformation that will amass even more corporate control over the food supply, this time with regard to the composition of chemical pesticides. Untested nanoparticles, according to new research, are now turning up in pesticide formulas being developed...

Unregulated nanoparticles in the food supply may pose health risks

9/10/2013 - If you need another reason to avoid processed and packaged foods, have a look at the lax standards surrounding nanotechnology. Falling under a system similar to the FDA's food additive GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) designation, nanomaterial is already infiltrating the food supply without oversight....

Miracle fungus naturally produces cancer-fighting nanoparticles

4/8/2013 - Researchers from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville have discovered that a species of fungus naturally produces nanoparticles capable of boosting the immune system and killing tumors. Their findings were published in the journal Advanced Functional Materials. "This exciting discovery is the first...

Find out how chemtrails adversely affect your health

9/19/2012 - When the denial of chemtrails is resolved, concerns of their content and their effects are raised. Two metals are consistently discovered worldwide in chemtrail analyses: barium and aluminum. They're formed as nanoparticles easily breathed in by mammals and absorbed by plant life. "Nanoparticles...

Nanoparticles destroy soil and the environment, study finds

4/20/2011 - Though some might argue that nanotechnology offers benefits not afforded by normal molecules, the environmental and human health consequences of this "breakthrough" technology appear dire, to say the least. New research published in the Journal of Hazardous Materials explains that nanoparticles damage...

Untested nanoparticles showing up in thousands of consumer products

3/14/2011 - Since 2006, the use of nanoparticles in consumer products has skyrocketed by over 600 percent. Nanotechnologies, which involve the manipulation of elements and other matter on the atomic and molecular scale, are now used in over 1,300 commercial and consumer products. And that number is expected to...

Cinnamon may be a treasure of green nanotechnology

12/16/2010 - Gold nanoparticles, so incredibly tiny they can't be seen by the naked eye, are used in electronics, healthcare products and as pharmaceuticals in some cancer treatments. Unfortunately, the positive applications of gold nanoparticles come with a downside -- producing the nanoparticles requires extremely...

Sunscreen made with nanoparticles may actually cause skin cancer

10/7/2010 - Sunscreens made with nanoparticles may cause serious bodily harm, a report from Friends of the Earth has warned. "Consumers need to know that manufactured nanoscale zinc and titanium oxides are not the only choice and are not necessarily the most effective or safest choice for sun protection," the...

Dangerous Nanoparticles Can be Transported by Insects

2/12/2010 - Nanoparticles can adhere to the bodies of flying insects, which may then transport the potentially dangerous particles long distances, according to a new study published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology. Nanotechnology concerns the manipulation and manufacture of particles on the...

Nanoparticles in Some Vitamins, Cosmetics, Sunscreens and Paint Cause Genetic Damage

11/28/2009 - It's no surprise that the extremely small substances (sized between one and 100 nanometers) known as nanoparticles can easily get inside the body. And when they do, how do they affect physiology, organs, even DNA? Unfortunately, those questions remain, for the most part, unanswered. But that hasn't...

Inhalation of Silver Nanoparticles Results in "Miraculous" Protection Against Pneumonia

9/1/2009 - Silver-based nanoparticles may prove the most effective method yet of delivering pneumonia medications, according to a study conducted by researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine and the University of Akron, Ohio, and presented at the 105th International Conference of the American...

The Dangers of Nanoparticles

11/26/2008 - Researchers in Finland and the US studied how certain nanoparticles interact with cells. Results indicated that nanoparticles may alter cell structure, causing the cells to die. Currently, nanoparticles are widely used in cosmetics, electronics, optical devices, medicine, and in food packaging materials....

Nanotechnology has a dark side: nanoparticles shown to cause brain damage

5/28/2004 12:07:23 PM - 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...
