Nanostructures or nanomaterials are forms of matter at the nanoscale. To give you an idea how small this is, if you line up 7 oxygen atoms or 3-4 water molecules, you'll get about one nanometer. But that's hard to imagine either. How about this: a red blood cell is approximately 7,000 nm wide. Or, to use a beaten-to-death comparison: a single hair from you head is about 50,000 - 100,000 nm thick.

Exposure to nanoparticles can play major role in development of cardiovascular diseases

Nanoparticles, extremely tiny particles measured in billionths of a meter, are increasingly everywhere, and especially in biomedical products. Their toxicity has been researched in general terms, but now a team of Israeli scientists has for the first time found that exposure nanoparticles (NPs) of silicon dioxide (SiO2) can play a major role in the development of cardiovascular diseases when the NP cross tissue and cellular barriers and also find their way into the circulatory system.

Toxic nanoparticles might be entering human food supply, study finds

Over the last few years, the use of nanomaterials for water treatment, food packaging, pesticides, cosmetics and other industries has increased. For example, farmers have used silver nanoparticles as a pesticide because of their capability to suppress the growth of harmful organisms. However, a growing concern is that these particles could pose a potential health risk to humans and the environment. In a new study, researchers at the University of Missouri have developed a reliable method for…
