Yet again with the nanotech danger hype

Yes, everyone agrees that health testing may be necessary. But do we really need to test the nanotubes in our golf clubs, tennis balls, and bicycles?

Caution is a good thing but is this fella going to do the same thing that Ralph Nader did when he helped to ban super-sonic transports? That was a spin-doctor fiasco, SSTs were never a threat to the ozone layer but Ralph had no problem convincing people it was so.

Using a hot button issue like safety to evoke knee-jerk responses has always been a good way to further your career, if you don't mind the moral cost.

I'm just saying lets be cautious with our caution or we'll end up throwing out the good stuff just to benefit some agenda pusher who actually could care less.
