NANOTECHNOLOGY UPDATE: More on scare tactics in the nano-wars:

We’ve seen this before, in the politicization of biotechnology through junk science. The European Parliament, which did so much to undermine genetically modified food, is set to join the nanowar. It commissioned a report that said nanoparticles should not be released into the environment. The message: Humanity must be saved from the technology that could save humanity.

Color me unsurprised.
