The Very Real Technology of Nanomedicine

The Science and Technology of Nanomedicine?

Imagine pills the size of molecules that seek and destroy tumors on their own. Soon miniscule robots will perform surgery inside patients with a precision never before achieved. These nanorobots will be able work a high speeds virtually undetected.

As with a disruptiive technologies the opportunity exists for it to be misused or for there to be unintented consequences. I shudder to think what that might be.
