Danger, Nanotubes

I just came across an interesting article on carbon nanotubes being as dangerous as asbestos. Next thing we're going to hear that buckyballs are as dangerous as when I hit a golf ball.

I'm not surprised. Disappointed, yes, but not surprised. Asbestos is not the scary thing most people think it is, nor are carbon nanotubes likely to be.

It's the similar size and shape of the fibers. As long as they stay outside your body, they are perfectly safe.
