Researcher reported that certain carbon nanotube structure (long, thin carbon nanotubes) might cause cancer for long exposure within sufficient quantities inhaled. Carbon nanotube (long & thin) has some properties close to asbestos which potentially cause mesothelioma, a cancer of the lung lining that take 30 years to manifest.

The good news is short carbon nanotube may not pose similar cancer risk than long, thin carbon nanotubes.

This is one the development where all new stuff will have to be gone through as we understood it more and more. Although it pose some level of risk, however sufficient precaution and procedure in place shall be able to minimize and avoid the consequence. General saying : Risk can not be avoided but can be managed. Those who are advancing their interests and works in nanotube study and production is encourage (shall) to take quick actions.
