Nutrition, Safety Key To Consumer Acceptance of Nanotech, Genetic Modification In Foods
New research from North Carolina State University and the University of Minnesota shows that the majority of consumers will accept the presence of nanotechnology or genetic modification (GM) technology in foods - but only if the technology enhances the nutrition or improves the safety of the food. View News Article (2014-12-03)

Nanotech Clay Armour Creates Fire Resistant Hard Wearing Latex Emulsion Paints
Researchers at the University of Warwick's Department of Chemistry have found a way of replacing the soap used to stabilize latex emulsion paints with nanotech sized clay armour that can create a much more hard wearing and fire resistant paint. View News Article (2007-07-27)

Nanotech: Unpredictable And Un-Regulated - New Report From ETC Group
The ETC Group releases a new Communiqué today that provides an update on policy discussions related to nanotech health and safety issues and the glaring lack of regulatory oversight. According to the ETC Group, governments on both sides of the Atlantic are reluctantly and belatedly conceding that current safety and health regulations may not be adequate to address the special exigencies of...
