Would you buy a product made with a textile engineered with nanotechnology?

What do people think?
Totally agree
"Yes, I believe that citizens should have a say on what developments should be made with nanotechnologies, regardless of what applications these will lead to."
Tend to agree
"Yes, I believe that citizens should have a say, but not for all products as I think that in general technology will be developed for the good of people and the environment, and precautionary actions will be taken when necessary."
Tend to disagree
"I think citizens must be consulted but I also think it is important to avoid slowing nanotechnology development with too many restrictions and precautionary decisions."
Totally disagree
"No, I think that there are already mechanisms in place to ensure the safety of products launched on the market, so I guess that those would be enough and therefore public consultations would not be necessary."
