Article calls for the need for a cautious, well-crafted policy framework for nanotechnology based on a clearer understanding of the direct and indirect effects, benefits, and risk of nanotechnology. The authors recommend a precautious approach that would slow developments where possible risks to human health and the environment are high, and put the burden of demonstrating the safety of nanotechnology on its proponents. Authors then go on to discuss the process of producing this type of guidelines for other technologies.
