GLIN==> nanotechnology in food and agriculture



For those of you in the vicinity, please note that Jim Thomas, of the ETC Group, will be presenting on "Nanotechnology and Justice: The Implications of Converging Technologies for the Poor, Marginalized, and Dispossessed,' this Thursday on the Michigan State University Campus in East Lansing, MI. Please see attached flyer for more info.
 
We may not think of nanotech as a 'Great Lakes' issue per se, but the potential environmental and health aspects of nanoengineered particles -- particularly those used in food and agricultural processes -- are of significant concern among regulatory agencies, private industry, and the NGO community. Stay tuned...
 
Cheers,
