VeilleNanos - The book Nanos & Risks of AVICENN

Discover our book on the risks of nanos on health and the environment!

Nanomaterials have become ubiquitous in our daily lives. How to spot them and what are their risks?

Table salt, ready meals, toothpaste, sunscreen, tires, household appliances, paint, fertilizers and pesticides: manufacturers are now incorporating nanomaterials in many products. However, their health and environmental impacts are still insufficiently known and very worrying harmful effects have already been demonstrated, particularly in the laboratory on plant, animal and human cells. Their large-scale dissemination is problematic. However, no real restrictions are currently implemented by the public authorities, which even encourage manufacturers to accelerate their marketing through substantial funding. There is no reliable traceability or labeling: it is impossible to identify the vast majority of marketed products containing nanomaterials.

Consumers, public authorities, actors mobilized on health and environmental issues, companies making products by sourcing from external suppliers: it is urgent to get informed and to be vigilant!
