Engineered nanomaterials are more common than many people think. From food to agriculture, you likely come into contact with them daily. This information begs the question: are nanomaterials safe? 

Khara D. Grieger joins the podcast today to discuss her work researching the uses and risks of nanotechnology in agriculture and food production. As an Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist in Environmental Health and Risk Assessment at North Carolina State University, she is doing everything she can to understand this complex topic – all in an effort to make the world a healthier place.

In this conversation, we unpack:

  • Types of engineered nanomaterials.
  • How to harness the properties of nanomaterials in a sustainable way.
  • How consumers can better understand the food they are consuming.
