THE DANGERS OF SILVER NANOPARTICLES TO THE HUMAN BODY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing science of producing and utilizing nano-sized particles that are procedure in nanometers. These nanomaterials are already having an impact on health care for the time being, nanoproducts are used to in various fields. Among the use are silver nanoparticles playa major role in the field the nano revolution and nanomedicine. Nanoparticles with is small size to large surface area (1–100 nm) have potential medical, industrial and agricultural applications. Scientists have carried out significant efforts toward the synthesis of nanoparticles by different means, including physical, chemical and biological methods. These properties can be used to overcome some of the limitations found in traditional therapeutic and diagnostic agents. What makes these materials superior and indispensable a their unique size-dependent properties. Silver nanoparticles have potential antimicrobial activity towards many pathogenic microbes. Along with this antimicrobial activity, silver nanoparticles are showing unacceptable toxic effects on human health and the environment.
