Graphene lung damage risk21st February 2012
Scientists at the University of Edinburgh have said a material called graphene could cause lung damage in people who work with it.
The material is used to make computer and mobile phone touch screens. Professor Ken Donaldson, chair of respiratory toxicology at the university, said: "We need to further assess the potential hazards posed by nanoplatelets made of graphene and other materials, so that appropriate health and safety measures can be put in place for those involved in their manufacture."
