The problem with current cancer treatment methods like chemo is that they simply kill cells. They don’t know the difference between the good and the bad, so they just take out all the cells they can. South Korean researchers may have the solution, and it involves magnets.

The method was tested on live zebrafish by sending a magnetic field that triggers the bad cells to essentially kill themselves. The plan to test the method on a variety of different cancers and see if it can destroy tumors in an effective way that doesn’t harm the good cells in the process.

The natural process is called apoptosis, which is the body’s way to get rid of old and faulty cells. Unfortunately, cancer generally causes this process to fail. The magnetic system could kick-start the process and effectively drive cancer out.

There is still a long way to go in making sure this process can actually be used on humans to fight cancer. This also is far from a cure, think of it more as a ‘safer’ process for treatment than current practices like chemotherapy.

A more detailed article explaining the process can be found in the source link below. Needless to say, this could be a huge aide to the fight against cancer and the search for the cure. What do you think?
