Nanoparticles, Willy Wonka and grey goo


A beautifully confused article from the Daily Mail to kick off the new year. Nano particles, are they awesome or or are they evil?

Well I don’t really care, I just want to know if they are going to give me cancer but Sean Poulter the old tease waits till the final paragraph before telling us.

“Some nano particles are known to mimic the harmful effects of asbestos on the lungs. Consequently, they have the potential to trigger lung cancer if inhaled.”

So first on the list of things to cause cancer in 2008: Nano particles. But it isn’t all bad apparently thanks to the wonders of nano technology we can look forward to Willy Wonka chewing gum, though disappointingly the Mail doesn’t tell us whether this is likely to turn us into a (cancer curing) blueberry.

Judging by this article The Mail is eyeing up Nano Particles as the next “frankenstein foods” but wants to keep the option open of filling its health pages with glowing reports on the inevitable tide of bullshit “Nano health supplements” that are surely on the way.

Can’t wait.
