This article is quite interesting about nanoparticles and all the different ways they're used. I think you'll be surprised as I was.

Thanks Jason. That was a good article, since it dealt with the apparently false fear some people have about nanoparticles used in vaccines.

Yeah, that surprised me a bit. I've never heard of the work 'nanoparticles' used in relation to vaccines. Have you? I can see how hearing it might the technology-hesitant crowd. I wonder if it's because a similar word, "nanites" which only exist in science fiction, disturbs them. In the sci-fi novels I've read and movies I've seen, they're robots that can fix people from the inside repairing tissues and such but then they run amok.
