A recent review article critically assessed the effectiveness of published research articles in nanotoxicology to meaningfully address health and safety issues for workers and consumers. The main conclusions were that, based on a number of flaws in study designs, the potential risk from exposures to nanomaterials is highly exaggerated, and that no 'nano-specific' adverse effects, different from exposures to bulk particles, have been convincingly demonstrated. In this brief editorial we focus on… CONTINUE READING
