Nanotechnology promises to revolutionize global nutrition — but it might be dangerous


Proponents of nanotechnology say it will revolutionize farming and
global food systems, with applications being explored that could
cut waste, make food safer and help create ‘super crops’ that
escape the controversial label of genetically modified organisms
(GMOs). If successful, it could help to overcome poor yields,
malnutrition and opposition to GMOs – all of which are still
large challenges in the global South. The science of nanotech is
cutting-edge but simple enough to be affordable globally. And the
development prospect is huge. So it’s no surprise that many
developing countries have already embarked on commercializing the
technology. But the…
