This story manages to stumble through such a large number of medical myths that it's breathtaking. At first, the story sounds like it makes good sense: nanotechnology, medicine, microscopic tumors... it's all very scientific, right? Hardly. Above all, this story demonstrates how easy it is to make junk science sound legitimate. Let me explain:

First, there's the idea that people have microscopic tumors that have to be removed through, essentially, nano-surgery. In reality, everyone has cancerous cells in their body, and it's the immune system -- not golden nano balls -- that keeps these cancerous cells in check. As usual, this story completely ignores the all-important role of the immune system in reversing cancer.

Secondly, there's the idea that doctors have to use infrared light (a form of phototherapy) to heat these golden nano balls and, basically, cook the surrounding tissue. In reality, no nano balls are needed at all: infrared light has its own powerful, documented healing properties. In fact, infrared light at the 880nm wavelength has such astounding healing properties that it's currently being explored as cutting-edge emerging medicine under the umbrella of vibrational medicine.

NASA was one of the first organizations to examine phototherapy in recent times: they were trying to develop a technology to accelerate the growth of plants, presumably for space travel. What they got, instead, was a technology that doubles the healing speed of human tissue. Shine the light on a cut, burn, lesion, sprain, or other injury, and it heals in half the time.

The U.S. military has been testing units, too. Soldiers engaged in recent war efforts have been using light therapy to heal bullet wounds, among other injuries. The results have been phenomenal (around a 200% boost in the speed of healing).

On the experimental side, some health practitioners are even using phototherapy to reverse cancer and shrink tumors.

So, you see, the nano balls are really just smoke and mirrors, like a lot of so-called nanotechnology. But it sure makes for great headlines.

Analysis: Nanotechnology is today's equivalent of the dot-com craze. Suddenly, everybody is talking nanotech, even when it makes no sense.
