IATP Event: Percolate: Nanotechnology in your soup

  • July 24, 2012
  • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Peace Coffee Shop - Wonderland Park 3262 Minnehaha Avenue South Minneapolis, Minnesota

What are nanoparticles and how do they affect the average American consumer? Despite very little health or safety testing, these tiny particles are already finding their way into pesticides, ice cream and packaged foodundefinedthroughout the food system, manufacturers are finding more and more uses of this novel technology.

Join IATP's Steve Suppan for a discussion of nanotechnology, how it's being used in the food system, and the possible implications for your health and the environment going forward. Why hasn't regulation of nanotechnology kept up, and what we can do about it? This isn't just another lectureundefinedcome ready to participate!

Please register by contacting Marin Byrne at mbyrne@iatp.org or (612) 870-3411.

Percolate is an opportunity, every other month, to talk about the food we eat: the people who grow it, how it’s bought and sold, and how it impacts our health and the economy.
