Google Is Developing Cancer And Heart Attack Detector

Recommended Posts

http://Google is developing cancer and heart attack detector

Google is aiming to diagnose cancers, impending heart attacks or strokes and other diseases, at a much earlier stage than is currently possible.

The company is working on technology that combines disease-detecting nanoparticles, which would enter a patient's bloodstream via a swallowed pill, with a wrist-worn sensor.

The idea is to identify slight changes in the person's biochemistry that could act as an early warning system.

The work is still at an early stage.

Early diagnosis is the key to treating disease. Many cancers, such as pancreatic, are detected only after they have become untreatable and fatal.

There are marked differences between cancerous and healthy tissues.

Google's ambition is to constantly monitor the blood for the unique traces of cancer, allowing diagnosis long before any physical symptoms appear.

How likely would this be to work? It seems fantastical?

Early drugs = massive potential income stream for them via pharma 'referrals'.

Sounds very like their own internet business model - getting paid for referring people to things more or less ?

Whether or not Google make this work, someone will. It's just a question of who, and when. As sensors become smaller and smaller, we'll be able to monitor bodies from the inside, as well as the outside.

Of course, if your sensors can find cancer in your body, they can probably also deliver drugs to kill it.

Apparently, though, according to an expert in the field of prophylactic medical screening on radio 4's Inside Health today, tiny cancer cells, some of which will become problematical cancer, some of which will disappear, are found in the lungs of people being scanned with MRI and CAT scans. He says that this sort of scanning has little value, as medics don't know yet how to treat such pre-cancerous states. So there! <_<

This story is yet again proof that the MSM these days publish any garbage they get fed.

I mean seriously, Google?! It's obvious that this is complete vaporware, a PR stunt, and the MSM happily run with it.

What next, Pfizer building sports cars and Adobe developing contact lenses? :rolleyes:
