Quantum mechanics could cure cancer – seriously

I saw this on 60 Minutes last week and was blown away.  The idea is deceptively simple – so simple one wonders how in the world it hadn’t been thought of before.  Since certain metals are known to absorb electromagnetic waves in the radio spectrum, this guy John Kanzius came up with the idea of injecting tumors with metal and then zapping them with high intensity radio waves.  The advantage is that there wouldn’t be any damage to surrounding tissue because radio waves are harmless to biological material.  That’s in contrast to current treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy that kill both healthy and non-healthy cells.

The story did not answer one important question, however, that my father picked up on when I told him about it: what happens to the residual metal in the body?  Could it cause long-term problems?  However, the story did answer the question of how well the surrounding tissue faired, i.e. whether the metal nanoparticles leaked into healthy cells.  The answer seems to be a resounding ‘no.’

In any case, this really could be it – the cure for cancer – and the ultimate idea is purely quantum mechanical.

  1. Jack Tuszynski’s group in Alberta was working on experimental treatments using ultrasound as the underlying mechanism in a similar fashion. Off topic, though of interest – Quantum Zeno effect in bird navigation: http://superconducting.blogspot.com/ .

    Cool! Thanks for the link and the reference to the Alberta group.

  3. i want a treatment of maligancy(mouth cancer) through a quantum physics

    Have you ever heard of the RIFE MACHINE, designed in the 20s
    by Dr. Rife. IT ACTUALLY CURED MANY PHASE IV CANCER, BUT THE
    FEDS REFUSED TO LEGALIZE IT. THE USC doctors validated it in
    1934, proving it cured difficult cancers. This was Quantum
    Mechanics at its very best. I know people who use comprable models,
    which can be bought today. But our MDs cant use it or they will be
    jailed. Need to know more. Ask me.
