New evidence of long-term persistence of genetically modified crops and
new concerns about gaps in monitoring of nanotechnology underscore the
risks from failing to embed the Precautionary Principle in regulatory
policy.

The first of the two developments is the stunning revelation from a
British study that genetically modified crops "contaminate the
countryside for up to 15 years after they have been harvested,"

Questioning Nanotechnology October 20, 2005

By John Hepburn

It turns out that size really does matter. Or to be more precise, it's
the size of matter that matters.

Scientists are manipulating matter at the 'nano' scale (one billionth of a metre) and finding that common materials are capable of assuming
radically different properties. Nano-scale materials may be more
