Some are calling it a revolution in manufacturing technology. But, will nanotechnology be a “green” industry? It’s a question that some scientists are saying needs to be answered now, before nano-tech goes big-time.
Tiny particles of silver designed to kill germs are being put into socks to control odor. What happens to that nanosilver later is concerning some scientists.
Researchers have found a new way to identify loose cancer cells in patients’ blood. As this ScienCentral News video explains, use of a high tech chip could give doctors a quicker and less invasive way to tell if treatments are working.
Scientists find that air pollution is even worse for you than previously thought. New research shows how tiny particles from vehicle emissions can cause heart disease and other problems.
