Small things, big effect

Nanoparticles are sized between 1 and 100 nanometres. They are the bridge between the macro and the atomic worlds and therefore are very powerful. Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles, for instance, are found in cosmetics, sunscreen, paint, vitamins, toothpaste and food colourings. Previously, TiO2 nanoparticles have been considered non-toxic because they do not cause chemical reactions. Now a new study has found that, once in your system, TiO2 nanoparticles accumulate in organs because the body has no way of eliminating them. Even worse they damage DNA and cause inflammation, both factors that increase cancer risk. It is believed at this stage that TiO2 particles do not go through skin but obviously can be inhaled if a product is an aerosol. Nanotechnology may well be the wave of the future, but we should be sure we can ride it before we commit to catching it.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
