Gold Nanoparticles Found To Be Capable Of 'Unzipping' DNA

Now we just have to make sure their is an independant (People For The People) governing body to make sure it is not misused!

Shocked to find out a couple of weeks ago that we do not have a "National Quick Response Team For Disease Control" which I though was completly ludicris since we are now "Housing Some Of The Most Deadliest Dieases In The World"

I am however positive about the news as with careful and lengthy research we may find answers to the sicknesses that face Australians and The World

Just make sure their is a regulating body which has identified possible missuse and gaurd against it!

It took a while at first to discover radioactivity could be harmful.
How long will it take to acknowledge the potential DNA harm that gold nanoparticles could pose if they become ubiquitous in commercial manufacture of products and in medicine??

Makes you Wonder about Colidal Silver as well!
