Why are people scared of nanotechnology?

    In order for nano technology to become process oriented and economical, it must be able to replicate itself – An apocalyptic scenario has been linked to this called “Grey Goo” in which nanobots reproduce themselves infinitely with any material they come in contact with – covering everything with “Grey Goo” or a teeming mass of nanobots –

    There are other possible theorized scenarios that would also be negative, such as invasions of privacy with undetectable nanobots, and threats to life from nanobots programmed with malicious purpose.

    There have been studies out there about use of nanotechnology in food that have shown that it may pose health risks. Many say that there hasn’t been nearly enough testing to be done to prove that nanotechnology in food is safe, with most tests proving to be inconclusive.
