      Titanium dioxide nanoparticles in the environment.

      Since the 1990s manufacturers have added titanium dioxide to a wide
      range of consumer products. So now, it's often found in our waterways. A
      new study reports that this nanomaterial can stress photosynthetic
      organisms, which could lead to the disruption of nitrogen and carbon
      cycles in aquatic ecosystems.
