Nano-foods: The next consumer scare?

Nano-foods: The next consumer scare?

  • There are tens of thousands of industrial processes for the manufacture of food, and almost none of them are declared on packaging.
  • Nanotechnology is no different from other food processing technology except that it’s newer, and we therefore know even less about possible risks.
  • Instead of sensationalist, content-free journalism about scary-sounding, science-fictiony food products, how about a systematic examination of the potential risks of all food processing technology.
  • Oh, wait. Never mind. That’s not “newsworthy”, is it.
