Nanomaterials and health and environmental risks

Nanomaterials and health and environmental risks - Let's be Vigilant! de l'Association AVICENN - Editions Yves Michel - February 2016
 
Anano-materials are ubiquitous in our daily lives. How can we spot them and what are their risks?
Table salt, ready meals, toothpaste, sunscreen, tires, household appliances, paint, fertilizers and pesticides: manufacturers are now incorporating nanomaterials into many products. However, their health and environmental impacts are still insufficiently known, and very worrying harmful effects have already been demonstrated, particularly in the laboratory on plant, animal and human cells. Their widespread dissemination is problematic.
However, no real restrictions are currently implemented by the public authorities, who even encourage industrialists to speed up their commercialisation through substantial funding. There is no reliable traceability or labeling: it is therefore impossible to identify the vast majority of marketed products containing nanomaterials.
Consumers, public authorities, actors mobilized on health and environmental issues, companies making products by sourcing from external suppliers: it is urgent to get informed!
 
Created in 2009, AVICENN (Association de veille et d'information civique sur les enjeux des nanosciences et des nanotechnologies) campaigns for greater transparency and democratization of the field of nanotechnology. http://veillenanos.fr
