TED Video: Treating cancer with electric fields
I found it amazing that patients wearing the radio therapy patches were able to carry on with their daily lives and without the dangerous debilitating side effects associated with chemo and radiation. Pretty interesting watching cell division being interrupted ending with the cells destruction due to the cells integrity being compromised by the applied frequencies.Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are the best-known methods for treating cancer. At TEDMED, Bill Doyle presents a new approach, called Tumor Treating Fields, which uses electric fields to interrupt cancer cell division. Still in its infancy -- and approved for only certain types of cancer -- the treatment comes with one big benefit: quality of life.
