The EPA and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission are collaborating in a worldwide research effort to assess any potential impacts of nanomaterials already in the market place on people’s health and the environment. .http://www.environmentalleader.com/2012/12/13/epa-examines-nanomaterial-risks/

 

 

EUROPE ' HAS FAILED TO LEARN FROM ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTERS' An 800-page report by the European Environment Agency.

Case studies include the stories behind industrial mercury poisoning; fertility problems caused by pesticides; hormone-disrupting chemicals in common plastics; and pharmaceuticals that are changing ecosystems. The report also considers the warning signs emerging from technologies currently in use, including mobile phones, genetically modified organisms and nanotechnology. The report accuses industry of working to corrupt or undermine regulation by spinning and manipulating research and applying pressure on governments for financial benefit http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2013/jan/23/europe-failed-learn-environmental-lessons
