You are excited for your run in the mountains. You put on your stain-resistant running shirt and odor-resistant socks, have a sip of energy drink, put sunscreen on your face and then head out for a run in the woods. Are you poisoning yourself? Your sunscreen, energy drink and running clothing may be among the 1600-plus consumer products made with nanomaterials.
Nanotechnology allows the manipulation of materials on the scale of atoms, measured in nanometers (A nanometer is one billionth of a meter, or between 50,000 and 100,000 times thinner than a human hair) The resulting nanoparticles are now being used in everything from appliances to cosmetics to clothing, yet the public knows little about them or the risks they may pose to human health.
Nanoparticles are not only found in the water or energy drinks. Nano-engineered materials have already been added in a number of conventional food products, health supplements, and cosmetics. For example, food manufacturers use the nanoparticle titanium dioxide to make yogurt, milk, cheese, kefir and other dairy products a much whiter color. Other products where nanoparticles are present include cereals, chocolates, pasta, salad dressings, boxed cake, muffin and pancake mixes, diet beverages, deli meats, sugar, peanut butter, mustard, canned fish, donuts, potato salads, toothpaste and household products such as Elmers Glue, paint and more. Nanoparticles are also found in organic foods.
Two -time Pulitzer Prize-winning acclaimed investigative reporter Andrew Schneider (Andrew Schneider inspired many and sadly died in 2017. His wife, Kathy Best, a 3 time Pulitzer Prize Winner acclaimed investigator is the editor of the Missoulian) broke the story of the asbestos poisoning of Libby, Montana, investigated nanoparticles and found alarming concerns such in this study by molecular biologist Bénédicte Trouiller. Mice drinking water with nano particle-titanium dioxide (the most common nanomaterial used in consumer products today) was damaging or destroying the animals’ DNA and chromosomes. The biological havoc continued as the study was repeated again and again. It was a significant finding: The degrees of DNA damage and genetic instability documented can be linked to all the big killers of man, namely cancer, heart disease, neurological disease and aging.
“What’s more, the particles given the mice to drink are just one of an endless number of engineered, atom-size structures that have been or can be made. And a number of those nanomaterials have also been shown in published, peer-reviewed studies (more than 170 from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health alone) to potentially cause harm as well. Researchers have found, for example that carbon nanotubes — widely used in many industrial applications — can penetrate the lungs more deeply than asbestos and appear to cause asbestos-like, often-fatal damage more rapidly. Other nanoparticles, especially those composed of metal-chemical combinations, can cause cancer and birth defects; lead to harmful buildups in the circulatory system; and damage the heart, liver and other organs of lab animals.” Nano particles Increase free radical stress, reactive oxygen species formation, and chronic inflammation throughout the body.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), found that when mice inhaled carbon nanotubes, the tiny tubes migrated from their lungs to the surrounding tissue—the very spot where asbestos causes the rare cancer known as mesothelioma.
Yet studies on nanotech’s downside are a mere nanospeck compared to the research that’s being done on how this technology can benefit humanity—and corporate profits. Of $1.5 billion in federal nano spending each year, only between 1% and 2.5% goes toward studying environmental, health and safety risks.
Schneider reports that nearly 20 of the world’s biggest food manufacturers such as Kraft, Nestle and Heinz have invested in nano labs or contracted out development of nano-related food products – but they’re keeping quiet about their efforts, and aren’t providing useful information to either the public or to regulators.
Also Geoengineer David Keith has admitted that airplanes spray Nanoparticles of aluminum out of airplanes (known as chem trails) all over the earth. Nanoparticles of aluminum are highly inflammatory and can penetrate the brain leading to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimers. “Steps need to be taken now to prevent an impending health disaster of enormous proportions if this project is not stopped immediately. Otherwise we will see an explosive increase in neurodegenerative diseases occurring in adults and the elderly in unprecedented rates as well as neurodevelopmental disorders in our children” states Dr Blaylock.
Leuren Moret, an internationally recognized Geoscientist and specialist on the environmental and biological effects of ionizing radiation reports smart dust is in the chem trails. Smart dust is a system of many tiny microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) such as sensors, robots, or other devices, that can detect, for example, light, temperature, vibration, magnetism, or chemicals.
Harvard industrial hygienist Robert Herrick advocated an allout effort to gather information about nano exposures and possible related illnesses. The asbestos industry could have undertaken a similar effort in the 1930s, he noted. Instead, industry execs decided to keep the subject quiet. If they had gone the other way, Herrick wondered, “how different would history be?”
