Long Carbon Nanotubes Could Have Carcinogenic Effect Similar to Asbestos

Nanotechnology, the science of creating materials possessing very tiny fibers, is having an increasing influence on everyday life. Currently, researchers have demonstrated for the first time in mice that long and thin nanomaterials known as carbon nanotubes could possibly have the same carcinogenic effect as asbestos: they can trigger the development of mesothelioma.
