New Cancer Cures use Nanotechnology and Algae


Nanotechnology has long been considered among the best hopes for a cancer cure, but now perhaps the greatest hurdle to using nanotechnology — the science of creating microscopic machines the size of a single cell, molecule or even atom — to combat the feared and deadly disease may have been overcome.

That obstacle, of course, is simply the cost of manufacturing the nanotechnology needed to infiltrate the human body to seek out and destroy individual cancer cells while leaving healthy cells and tissue unharmed. Not only would a cancer cure using artificially created nanoparticles cost so much that the medicine would likely be unavailable for widespread use, the process itself is also dangerous and environmentally destructive, requiring the use of deadly, industrial chemicals.
