Abstract

Article reports on the consumer report released by the environmental group Friends of the Earth, that explains the potential health risks of engineered nanomaterials for humans and lists brands of sunscreen that do, might have, or don't contain nanoparticles. The article contrasts this report to a report by the Environmental Working Group which suggests that sunscreens containing nanoparticles may be among the safest and most effective on the market.
