A well-known consumer organization now believes that the government should provide more funds for risk research and regulation of nanotechnology, and should require manufacturers to report health problems linked with nano-ingredients.

The explosion of nanotechnology-enabled products has caught the eye of the prominent Consumers Union, the nonprofit publisher of Consumer Reports, the widely read and influential magazine that features product information. The July issue included an article entitled “NANOtechnology: Untold Promise, Untold Risk.”According to the article, while nanotechnology “promises to be the most important innovation since electricity and the internal combustion engine,” the article goes on to note that “some applications might pose substantial risks to human health and the environment.”
