Military space technology will help women in treatment for breast cancer

Military space technology will help women in treatment for breast cancerAs shown by the history of human development, most of the discoveries made by man, were primarily military, and then the peaceful use. A new study by researchers from the University of California (Los Angeles, USA) only confirms this assertion. According to their data, the directed beam of microwave radiation developed by the military to intercept nuclear missiles (in the framework of "star wars"), can be used to kill cancer cells, as the latter are more sensitive to heat than healthy cells. To ensure the correctness of their theory, the researchers used a focused microwave radiation for the treatment of 25 women diagnosed with breast cancer. After treatment, the doctors noted the successful destruction of cancerous tumors in 24 patients. Side effects of microwave therapy were mainly represented by redness and pain, but one of the patients had received serious burns, which subsequently formed scars. "If we manage to prove the effectiveness of this approach, it will become an important stage in the development of breast cancer treatment, because the obvious advantage of the method of directed microwave therapy compared with surgical treatment is the preservation of the breast," said Dr. Herman Vargas, a leading surgeon-oncologist California medical center, participated in the study. The results were presented at the held at the Los Angeles meeting of the "Society of Surgical Oncology". (Medvetnet).
