Nanotechnology is revolutionizing many aspects of our lives, not the least care. But the technology could actually prolong life - and is it safe? David Adam

comes a time with all new technologies, however, interesting and cutting edge that is believed to be the big question asked by members of the audience: "So, what can be done to I "And this is the same for nanotechnology -? the science of very, very small
The promise is there, if some of the first applications: glass "clean" itself, for example, small and additives that improve the performance of everything from bumper cars to lotion tanning. But what about the really important issues of the day? You can help nanotechnology on human health? As the population ages gradually increase tension and puts a heavy health service (the number of Europeans over 65 years is projected to increase by nearly 40% in 2030), nanotechnology can help you live longer and more productive? This was the central question of an expert panel and audience members were invited was asked last month organized a special seminar sponsored by the Guardian and nanochannels, a project funded by the EU, which is run a broad awareness education project of nanotechnology. Or as a schoolboy of 14 years from the audience to speak more directly on the panel: "How long will I live because of nanotechnology"
answer this question were a series of nanotechnology experts: Dr. Leonard Fass, Director Academic Relations, GE Healthcare, Professor Homer-Vanniasinkam Shervanthi, Vascular Surgeon, Leeds General Infirmary, the Professor Kostas Kostarelos, president of Nanomedicine, University of London, Professor Peter Dobson, head of strategic advisors Research Councils UK Nanotechnology, and Professor Mark Miodownik, a materials scientist and engineer at the University College London. Also participated, and to offer the official line of the British government was David Willetts, universities and science minister. In addition to answering questions from the panel also answered questions about Twitter, which were written by people who have followed the debate on live television.
