    I am not aware if food processors have begun nanometer food processing. I remember hearing that they were considering it about a year ago.

    The benefits include reduction of pollutants in food such as herbicides and other chemicals.

    The risks include diffusion of food through cell membranes in the mouth, among other odd things...

    How big of a deal is this technology? Should the general public be explicity informed of the existence of nano-food?

    Does the general public assume the risk because the consumer made the distinct purchasing choice?

    How much responsibility does a parent have to feed thier child the least dangerous foods, assuming this is in fact dangerous.

    Here are some introductory power points from industry researchers as well as one paper just talking about nano-products that includes food:,d.b2I
