Long-fibre carbon nanotubes shown to be carcinogenic

Nanotechnology plays an indispensable role in modern materials research and new products. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) enable production of novel materials with amazing properties. Progress is however not without risk and a recent study on mice has shown that certain types of CNTs have similar carcinogenic properties as asbestos fibers.  So far there is no evidence of risk to human exposure, but caution is requi ...
