Abstract: Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter with one or more external dimensions of less than 100 nanometers and offers many new solutions to the social, economic and technological challenges of today. However, the use of unethical and uncontrolled nanotechnology has caused an ongoing debate in the scientific community. The increasing use of nanotechnology has led to the generation of waste containing synthetic nanomaterials and its release into the environment is predicted to grow dramatically in future. This paper describes potential benefits and risks of nanotechnology on environment and human health and attempts to find safe and reliable methods for developing nanotechnology.
Keywords: environment and health, potential benefits, potential risks, nanotechnology
