Nanotubes are a recent “enhancement” to many products we use and have approved for use without adequate testing for their impact on human health. About 8 months ago I had a conversation with an osteopath who advised she had just come back from a natural health symposium where concern over nanotechnology (not just the tubes) was being expressed. This technology is being incorporated into the items we use daily and also in numerous medical products and even medicines. She said she was very concerned with the information she heard in that the technology uses in medicine are believed to actually alter human DNA.
Here is a recent article I found on what may be brought to light in the future regarding nanotubes. Nanotubes and nanotechnology are yet another thing we need to become educated about so we can make informed decisions about identifying and using these products, which like GMO, do not seem to be labelled in any way to advise the consumer.
In Study, Researchers Find Nanotubes May Pose Health Risks Similar to Asbestos.
