Automatic TRANSCRIPT

With the use of fullerenes medicines and other products could have unintended consequences I'm Jim Metzner and this is the pulse of the planet fullerenes are being touted for use in medicine to deliver drugs in the body to specific organs for example so they could be manufactured at the lab and then you could attach certain drugs to them and then send them to certain parts of the body Z. Mars the Charles P. Lunsford professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech we've looked at how with all the rains are generated from natural combustion processes such as free if you know your liner if you're burning coal and we've also looked at engineered ones and put them into a chamber and see how they react with ozone so the idea is that use of full rains could release them into the atmosphere they could then react with ozone or other compounds in the atmosphere and then be changed and maybe they could become more toxic and of concern I think as NATO technology continues to grow and there's more potential for releases of engineered nanomaterials into the environments we should keep an eye on how much is being released of what types and keep in mind that these releases do not necessarily stay unchanged in the environment that they can undergo transformations that could matter to us because they could affect the toxicity of these materials I think the place where I'd be most concerned is the occupational or workplace exposures where engineered nanomaterials are being manufactured because I think those are the places with the potential for the highest exposure to people also the planet is made possible in part by the center for earth and environmental nanotechnology and the National Science Foundation I'm Jim Metzner something California is only twenty four hour local news and traffic station K. and extend seventy news radio and other and I'm Vicky more coming out early in the hunt for the murder suspect in the killing of three men whose bodies were dumped at a riverside county cemetery I'm Bloomberg Steve potus economic growth late last year shows weakness in consumer spending your money at five fifty I'm a teacher doing Dodgers rallied past the angels in cactus league play Padres won an exhibition action sports in ten minutes.
