, “the authority on mesothelioma and asbestos cancer”, have published an information sheet that warns that exposure to nanotubes could pose similar risks to those of asbestos. “Current research suggests that exposure to carbon-based nanotubes may lead to the development of mesothelioma, a deadly form of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs and has no known cure. Scientists have called for further research and great caution before introducing large numbers of products containing nanotubes into the market if long-term harm is to be avoided. In particular, they suggest that further testing related to nanotube exposure and the onset of mesothelioma is crucial”.
