As we end the year 2015, you may be wondering the choice of this editorial in a Family Practice journal. The interest stems from a personal visit in mid-2012 to the National Centre for Nano-Structured Materials (NCNSM) located at the grounds of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Pretoria South Africa. The NCNSM focuses on the development of new materials using nanotechnology, and on the applications of nanotechnology in the manufacturing, energy and health sectors. This editorial focuses on the opportunities and possible risk(s) of nanotechnology.
