A new and promising alternative cancer treatment, histotripsy, is being reported at https://www.naturalnews.com/2017-03-29-scientists-have-discovered-a-way-to-destroy-cancer-tumors-using-nothing-but-sound-waves.html
HIFU is a non-invasive, targeted treatment that kills cancer cells. It convert electrical signals into sound waves, then concentrates ultrasound into a small focal region to raise the temperature to more than 65 decrees Celsius and thus killing cancer cells. This does not harm normal cells. I remain curious as to how the ‘normal’ cells are not damaged but I’m still looking for an explanation that I can wrap my mind around.
In another statement on the above site there is more promise: “Researchers at the University of Alberta in Canada have developed a new technique that uses focused sound waves to activate minute particles known as nanodroplets.”
As is usually the case, these are claims to help the future and as we all have learned, there is a wide gap between the here-and-now vs. the promises of what the future holds. Like those with cancer who are treating themselves with food, not medicine, we wait and watch.
