ナノ粒子は植物のDNAを損傷させることが証明されました。

The research team tested the human-made, ultra-fine particles on a food crop, radish, and two grazing crops, perennial and annual rye grass. The compound used in the study, cupric oxide, has been used for many years as a coloring in glass and ceramics, a polish for optics, and as a catalyst in the making of rayon. Cupric oxide is an oxidizing agent that removes electrons from other compounds — it has been shown to cause DNA damage in some organisms. The purpose of the research was to see if “nano-sizing” the compound made it more or less likely to accumulate within the plant and also whether it caused other effects inherently from the nano-sizing.
