I knew this could happen when I first heard of nanotech
in the early 1990s. I emailed a scientist who didn't answer,

are also chemicals. Just what, as chemicals, are they

act like asbestos in the lungs, and being so tiny can travel
into the blood stream and into the liver and brain, and that
nanoized titanium dioxide is toxic (closer to my original
