Risks of Nano-technology

with 16 comments

nanotech

According to the Organic Consumers Association, ” …the most dangerous hi-tech poison of them all {is}- nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is now a multi-billion dollar Frankenstein monster industry churning out a vast menu of untested and unlabeled products containing tiny nanoparticles including non-organic vitamin supplements, food packaging, processed food, cosmetics, and sunscreens.

….Nanotechnology is inherently dangerous. Mounting scientific evidence indicates that nanomaterials produce dangerous “free radicals” which can destroy or mutate DNA and can cause damage to the liver and kidneys. Nanotech particles not only injure and kill lab animals – they can kill you as well.

Every day, new evidence of the dangers of nanotechnology emerges:

  • Workplace nanoparticle exposure was linked to seven cases of serious and progressive lung disease in China including two patient deaths.
  • Nanoparticles present in a chemical found in sunscreens – titanium dioxide – are being examined as possibly causing Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. “

In March 2009, Lloyd’s of London reported:

Lloyd’s examining potential threats

Over the past 18 months, the Lloyd’s Emerging Risks team has been examining the potential threats associated with nanotechnology from an insurance perspective, so it’s interesting to hear the views of a CEO whose business actually uses the technology.

In 2006, nanoparticles were reported to be behind the breathing difficulties that a bathroom sealant caused in some consumers in Germany. It was subsequently suggested that the product didn’t contain any nanoparticles after all.

Then, last year, a study suggesting that carbon nanotubes could behave like asbestos was widely reported and some news articles drew a link between nanotechnology and cancer.

Hazard and exposure risks

“There are real hazard and exposure risks associated with nanotechnology,” Raguso says……..

In today’s economic climate, it seems that one of the few realistic routes to growth is innovation. ……..At the same time, when you think that part of the reason behind the turmoil in our financial markets was the blithe acceptance of complex products that many didn’t understand, the importance of getting to grips with and quantifying complex sources of risk has never been more obvious. ”

UPDATE:

Tell USDA: Keep Nanotech OUT of Organic!

USDA’s National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) is voting on whether nanotechnology should be banned from use in Organic products.  Thanks to your overwhelming outcry in May 2009, the Board’s initial recommendation is to keep nanotech out of organic entirely.  Now, we need your help again to make sure USDA holds the line!  The critical vote on the Board’s final recommendation will be held in Washington D.C. on Nov 3.

Nanotechnology is contrary to Organic Principles and could further entrench industrial/chemical agriculture and industrial food as our dominant paradigm, to the detriment of public health and the environment.   Tell NOSB to ensure the integrity of Organic on this issue by voting that USDA ban nanotechnology as an excluded method.

Take action here.

  1. […] Risks of Nano-technology […]

  2. Thank you it was very it.

  3. I think if nano technology in food can serve to fix many health concerns from being able to create less fatty foods it would be better than GM food. Nano food would still be real food and not GM food. Since food is evolved from the nano environment, what can the risks of nano technology in food be?

    • Nano-sized particles can cause cellular and genetic damage. What makes you think nano-food would be “real” food? Manufacturers are happy to provide slop for domesticated animals of all kinds….that’s just how they think of us.

      • Nano scale particles are the essence of what makes all living cell material in our food. It is perfectly understandable that if a company doesn’t care about what it’s doing then of course that would create a nightmare, and I agree that the history of today’s corporations show a carelessness in their rush to meet deadlines that may compromise the quality of their research, nevertheless nano technology if administered properly and in harmony with laws of the nano scale can do no harm.

        If nanotechnology ambitions stays within the boundaries of its original inertial interface formula it will not accelerate toward an imbalance in the body’s other systems. As we know on the nano scale the rate of electron forces are not equal to distance x acceleration. The formula used may be the difference between delayed genetic mutations and new horrifying birth defects from nano food creating new unknown unseen and untested dynamics in our body’s 9 biological systems.

        Consider what may happen if a nano pill causes all body functions and its systems from the nano level to flush, clean, cleanse etc etc all at the same time. Whether or not our body can handle and maintain these new dynamics may depend on the formula used. Trust me you need not worry, nano technology will not be in the hands of free market destruction. There is more to know about nanotechnology than what the public is aware of. It is all under control.

        • Do you know who is credited with creating the nano-interface formula that suddenly enabled nanotechnology? I think that person should be asked his opinion of what he/she thinks of all this. I have looked everywhere I can find no definite person accredited with the greatest discovery in the world which even seems to even be the formula for the Unified Field Theory UFT Einstein looked for but never found. What do you think?

          • Actually I think before considering using nanotechnology in food needs another five to ten years of research. This is all happening too fast.

  4. There are more questions than answers about nanotech safety. The rush to market tends to overwhelm the science.

    Check out the “Questions and answers on nanotech safety” link at the end of the article above.

  5. Yes it is very interesting. Democratic capitalism is competition which may force one to rush to judgement or be less careful. However I think since then they’ve made nano technology a part of EPA warnings and have new installed new regulations around nano scale manufacturing and nano products toxicity issues etc. I know quite a bit about nano technology.

    What people do not know and need to know is there is one person that came up with the formula that enables nanotechnology. No nanotechnology product existed before 2005 though it was always discussed they never found an enabling formula to make it real until he began to prepare a library center event to promote the formula for a new technology.

    He is currently fighting against a black market against the entire nanotechnology racket. If not for losing control of his formula for the nano interface that enables nano technology, nanotechnology would not be in a free market. It is way too dangerous to be in a free market. Have you seen this? It’s crazy nanotechnology can destroy all life on earth in two days. I can tell you stories of what it can do.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0dYPnui3rM&feature=player_embedded

  6. PS. He does have a 2000 copyright on the formula that enables nanotechnology and pretty much everything that’s been discovered about the characteristics of the nano plane is all in the 2000 copyrighted research. Trust me everything’s under control. It’s just a matter of time. Stay tuned.

    • From Wikipedia: “Nanotechnology, shortened to “nanotech”, is the study of the controlling of matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally nanotechnology deals with structures sized between 1 to 100 nanometer in at least one dimension, and involves developing materials or devices within that size.”

      There is no “formula” or magic process that enables nanotech, only the ever increasing ability of various sciences to work at the minute level.

      “Under control”?? Surely you jest.

      • Trust me I am very familiar with nanotechnology. Before we are able to control matter on an atomic scale we have to be able to see the atomic scale. nanotech is the abilit to pick up idividual atoms. Since 2000 this ability has been copyrighted as ‘Analog Attractors Subatomic Reactors’ which are enabled by the 2000 copyrighted nano-interface. As we know nanotech comes from the ability to finally “see” the nano scale. The nano-interface is what allows this ability. This ability did not arrive until 2005. Until 2005 it was all talk. You will not find a nanotech product that was invented before 2005.

  7. Nanotechnology is a racket. The new nanotechnology breakthrough all began in 2005 with ‘PEW Charitable Trusts, Research On Emerging New NanoTechnologies’. They know nanotechnology is a racket and therefore they aren’t telling anyone. Stay tuned.

  8. PS. You may have heard of the interface being regarded as a microwave and based on microwave modulation. As we know microwaves have been around for decades and no one group or person is credited with adding the microwave concepts to the ability to see and pick up individual atoms although it has changed every aspect of our life forever. This is not logical. It is all a black market and a racket. Stay tuned.

    Anyone is welcome to help keep nanotechnology under control. The life you save may be your own.

  10. Nano technology is a racket and soon the world will know it. Racketeering, ID theft, money laundering, mail fraud, and bank fraud lawsuit trial is already set for January. Have a nice day.
