This tiny particle could roam your body to find tumors | Sangeeta Bhatia, TED Talk

While I have a strong understanding around why people get sick, based on the emotional connection, (see my article, Why do we get sick? | Our Psychological Foundation & Immune System), which fear is also a big part of, this doesn’t mean that future technologies can’t also assist the diagnosis and healing process. If something can be identified much earlier, then natural therapies and many healing modalities can still be appropriate to use for resolving health issues.

TED Description: (11 minutes) "What if we could find cancerous tumors years before they can harm us — without expensive screening facilities or even steady electricity? Physician, bioengineer and entrepreneur Sangeeta Bhatia leads a multidisciplinary lab that searches for novel ways to understand, diagnose and treat human disease. Her target: the two-thirds of deaths due to cancer that she says are fully preventable. With remarkable clarity, she breaks down complex nanoparticle science and shares her dream for a radical new cancer test that could save millions of lives."
