Wild Card's description 
Targeted nano antibacterial agents kill bacteria in laboratory rats and in rapid succession a new cure for MRSA is announced. Follow up studies find that nano anti-bacterial agents have asbestos like properties and there is public outcry, and a backlash against anything Nano. Most nanotechnology research and development is halted, although there is public outcry as it is leaked that the government are sanctioning secret nano research.
