In this mini-review various aspects of copper nanoparticles are considered with a special emphasis on antioxidant stress. Copper nanoparticles may become a problem maker for the environment but seems a problem solver in wound dressings and potentially in diabetes and cancer. Longterm toxicity of copper nanoparticles is not known. An international registry agency should control the use of copper nanoparticles, especially in food nanotechnology.
