Carbon Nanotubes and Us
Brendoon Ouimette: Smokers are the last of the world's true optimists. While we engage in an activity that is immensely destructive to our bodies, we tacitly believe that by the time we get cancer there will be a cure. As the trimester rolls to an end and my smoke intake increases, I'm banking on it.
So I was delighted to see in the news recently that my favorite unproven technology has made some breakthroughs in the "Save the Smokers" arena. At Stanford University, carbon nanotubes were recently used in a lab to destroy cancer cells, specifically melanoma (skin cancer), while leaving the normal cells around them unharmed.
