Using Nanotechnology to Destroy Cancer

The  American Cancer Society reports trends in cancer death rates among men and women between the years 1930 and 2010 (see slideshow below). Of course, there are fluctuations throughout these years – but it could be concluded that rates of cancer death nowadays are not all that different from 50 years ago. 1,083 more words


New developments in cancer nanomedicine & sense of déjà vu from Swarna bhasma, a medieval Ayurvedic medicine.

A recent research study published in the journal Nanoscale has highlighted how nanoparticles, particles having size in the range of 1 to 100 nanometres (for reference, your average paper sheet is 75,000 nanometres thick) coated with cancer meds can prove a potent drug delivery vehicle for selectively killing only the cancerous cells and sparing normal cells in the body. 1,494 more words
