ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a meeting regarding the health risk associated with the nano-particles from aerosol. German scientific experts, the federal state authorities and the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment attended the meeting. They were not able to determine whether nano-particles from an aerosol contributed to the health problems observed in a number of people. The panel also highlighted that the distributors of the products were unable to supply the full formulations.
