  1. Also, for finer applications, you can functionalize the surface of nanotubes to allow your body clear them out of your lungs/blood stream fast enough to completely avoid any harmful effects.

  2. Hello everyone. I’m a hip hop artist who is deeply inspired by the prospects of nanotechnology. It sometimes emerges in my writing. Come check out my new video “Molecular Replication”. watch?v=Fre9FV_qT0E

  3. CNTs used as shown in these applications do not become airborne and won’t enter cells. 1) In the studies that show potential health risks researchers take individual CNTs and place them inside lungs etc. of mice. That doesn’t mean they can actually get there. 2) It is very difficult to separate an individual CNT, even from the raw material. Millions of dollars and tons of energy is spent trying to do this. 3) Here they are embedded in resin, etc.. It is not the same as asbestos.
