nanotechnology by-products, Plata said the new data may be crucial as the nanotechnology industry seeks to avoid the kind of unanticipated health and environmental problems that have accompanied emergence of other new technology.

Researchers said, for instance, that they foresee developing, in collaboration with the CNT industry, green chemical reactions and filtration systems to substitute for those with potentially hazardous byproducts and other ways of manufacturing carbon nanotubes that minimize potentially adverse impacts.

Without this work, the environmental and health impacts of the carbon nanotube industry could be severe and costly to repair, Plata said. We would like to help it develop in an environmentally sustainable fashion.

Acrylamide not linked to breast cancer in U.S. women, study finds

Foods that contain acrylamide are unlikely to cause breast cancer in women, according to preliminary results of a new study involving 100,000 U.S. women. The finding is the largest epidemiological study to date exploring the possible link between acrylamide and cancer in humans, say Lorelei Mucci and colleagues.

At levels consumed in the diet, it appears unlikely that acrylamide in foods is related to breast cancer risk, says Mucci. In prior work, her research group also examined dietary acrylamide and risk of cancer of the colon, rectum, bladder and kidney, and similarly found no association. Although we do not rule out that very high levels of acrylamide could c
