Nanotechnologies in medicine

Nanotechnology help people live longer and healthier lives

Some people's opinions are skeptical:

"I'm a loyal customer and I've been using loads of skin care products, bud i think it's all just a bluff. Nanotechnology is just a con to attract and to fool customer into buying overpriced products. I personally cannot understand what nanos can do in a moisture lotion or a hand care cream," says Valery Britton.

Jenny Tannyson says : "Most people are not very well aware of what nanotechnology means, but the word itself sounds impressive. Sales managers can sell more if they convince customers that cutting-edge technologies are applied to produce the product."

Scientists for use of nanotechnologies in medicine

Scientists, however, are much more excited with the potential of applying nanotechnology in medicine which can save lives and significantly improve quality of life for many patients. Like in cosmetics, nanotechnology has been successfully used for delivering drugs. Nanocrystalline drugs and polymeric capsules for drugs delivery have already been clinically tested and are implented in medical practice.

some interesting facts about nanotechnology:

Three microns - the maximum size for medical nanorobots because that is the minimum

size of the capillaries.

Nanotechnology used for applying nanocapsules for textiles. By nano capsules textiles can make oil repellent and beauty.



I conducted a survey in five high school students.

To the question "Have you heared abot nanotechnology" five out of five students answered "yes".

Five out of five students said they nanotechnology be applied in real life.

Three out of five students reported that nanotechnology be applied in "medicine".

Also, four students responded that nanomedicine will really start in 5 years, and one out of five students responded that nanomedicine will really start in 10 years.


Hypothesis was confirmed: Nanotechnology can significantly improve the current health care system and promises to create a much healthier society in the future.
