Nanomaterials Negatively Impacts Soybeans

Originally Published September 02, 2012; Last Updated August 22, 2013; Last Republished August 22, 2013:


Recent PNAS research, Soybean Susceptibility to Manufactured Nanomaterials with Evidence for Food Quality and Soil Fertility Interruption (pdf), finds soybean growth and soil fertility is compromised by manufactured nanomaterials (MNM), concluding:
"There is great concern, but a dearth of information, regarding potential MNM impacts to agriculture and the food supply."
