Research is showing that relatively uniformly sized nanometer scale particles are part of the environment we live in. A recent study published in the journal Science Progress analyzed the carbon nanoparticle content in everyday foods such as bread, corn flakes and biscuits, and found th at products containing carmelized sugar contained spherical carbon nanotubes in the range of 4030 nm. The blog author raises the question, "If these natural-occurring nanoparticles case no health issues, do engineered nanoparticles also safe?"
