Earlier today, an IEEE blogger commented on a nanosilver article we previously re-published on this cite.   The original article was written by the Silver Nanotechnology Working Group and was first published on the University of Massachusetts, Amherst’s InterNano website (where I am Contibuting Editor for Environmental, Health and Safety and Regulation). 

Dexter Johnson comments on the Nanoclast blog of IEEE’s Spectrum website:

"In what must come as a blow to NGOs around the world it turns out that the material that has fueled much of their indignation about nanotechnology, nanosilver, has not only been ‘rationally manufactured, regulated, and used commercially for over a century with no significant adverse environmental, health, and safety effects’, but also the EPA has specifically been looking at nanosilver as far back as the 1950s."
