Consequently, markedly different toxicities are obtained in static and flow-through toxicity tests and, generally, traditional toxicity testing gives a poor picture of their effects. Thus, developing methodologies for toxicity testing of nanomaterials is of major importance. Most presently used nanomaterials are metal-based, and one question, which is only partially clarified, is to what extent any measured toxicity is due to the metal ions and what is due to the metal in the nanomaterial itself.
The possibility that transgenic animals might have a competitive advantage over naturally reproducing ones stems from the idea that animals prefer bigger partners as their mates. This would favor transgenic animals, as the single trait that has been most selected for is growth. However, this notion has not been conclusively tested with transgenic animals. , Rast, W. ), 2010.

Plutonium-238, are consequently very dangerous. Beta radiation is the movement of electrons or positrons. The energy of beta particles varies markedly: it is very small for tritium and sulfur, but quite large in the case of, for example, phosphorus and sodium. All of these isotopes are commonly used in biological laboratories. 5 cm thick. The energy of gamma radiation is very small, but, because of the virtually nonexistent size of particles, its penetration distance is long. Consequently, the likelihood that the radiation causes cellular damage is small, but since the effective distance is long, some cells in an organism may be damaged.
