|NANOPARTICLES MAY POSE A THREAT TO THE LIVER|
|A science report released April 5 2006 by researchers at the U.of Edinburgh states they will begin studying the effects of nanoparticles on the liver. |
Nanoparticles are 80,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. Airborne nano-particles... are already known to enter the lungs having an asbestos like effect on lung tissue.
Scientist Dr Celine Filippi explains: "In experiments carried out elsewhere to mimic environmental exposure, nanoparticles delivered into the lungs crossed the lung barrier and entered the blood. Particles in the blood can reach the liver, brain & other organs.
Professor Ken Donaldson, Professor of Respiratory Toxicology at the University of Edinburgh said: "We are looking at the new idea that the liver is a target for nanoparticles..."
