1. The molecular toxicity of aerosolized nanoparticles (PM2.5) is poorly understood.
2. The nanotoxicity of stratospheric aerosol injections (SAI) on human health requires further investigations.
3. The differential effects of highly dispersed aerosols (HDA) on the neuroimmune system, lung/brain axis, chronic inflammation, and neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer, Parkinson) requires additional research. 
4. MAC1 activation is implicated in the dopaminergic-mediated neurotoxicity of aerosolized nanoparticles. 
Differential effects of nanoparticles translocation
- Effects of particulate matter (PM2.5) air pollution on cardiovascular disease 
- Increase in blood pressure (hypertension) 
Central nervous system
- Alzheimer disease 
- Parkinson disease 
- PM2.5 exposure may cause chronic neuroinflammation and oxidative stress. 
- PM2.5 exposure may induce selective neurotoxicity through glutamatergic signaling and increase NMDA-induced excitotoxicity. 
- Cyclooxygenase-2, interleukin-1beta, and CD14 signaling upregulation. 
- Microglia-mediated dopaminergic neurotoxicity (Reactive microgliosis). 
- Decrease of serum testosterone levels 
- Increase of serum estradiol levels 
- Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)
- Lipid peroxidation and oxidative DNA/RNA damage. 
- AECOPD 
- Lung cancer 
Nanotoxicity of aerosolized nanoparticles
- Aerosolized nanoparticles:
aerosol, bioaerosol, nanoparticles, aluminium oxide, particulate matter, PM2.5, gulf war syndrome, chronic neuroinflammation, vapor phase oxidation, hydrocarbons, barium hexaaluminate, microglia, MAC1

"I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them.
I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do." -Robert A. Heinlein
"The essence of the independent mind lies not in what it thinks, but in how it thinks."

"Now let us consider another kind of drug – still undiscovered, but probably just around the corner – a drug capable of making people feel happy in situations where they would normally feel miserable. Such a drug would be a blessing, but a blessing fraught with grave political dangers. By making harmless chemical euphoria freely available, a dictator could reconcile an entire population to a state of affairs to which self-respecting human beings ought not to be reconciled. Despots have always found it necessary to supplement force by political or religious propaganda. In this sense the pen is mightier than the sword. But mightier than either the pen or the sword is the pill. In mental hospitals it has been found that chemical restraint is far more effective than strait jackets or psychiatry. The dictatorships of tomorrow will deprive men of their freedom, but will give them in exchange a happiness none the less real, as a subjective experience, for being chemically induced. The pursuit of happiness is one of the traditional rights of man; unfortunately, the achievement of happiness may turn out to be incompatible with another of man's rights – liberty." - Aldous Huxley
