I'm all down for nano technology.

It only may treat some kinds of cancer. Seem the problem is getting the nano tube to attach to only the cancerous cells.

Heres what one doc says. "We could target specific abnormal proteins, put a polar charge on the nanoparticles and use magnets to focus them on those areas of the tumor."

Curing cancer sure would put alot of people out of a job. They may not allow it.

Nano technology does not sound fun IMO. Little machines running around your body no thanks. I've had lots of family members die to cancer. You would have to find statistics to prove that a population outbreak would happen and its already happening anyways.

ok so wouldnt necessarily lead to an explosion, maybe poor sense of the word, but there would defintely be less population reduction.
