And send out on how we deal with bacterial infections and viruses there's a difference between the two federal officials are warning that decades old antibiotics were used to.
May not be cutting it anymore doctor Smart -- you gonna tell us about that there is a difference between viral and bacterial.
Right there is in four years -- -- about the extra treat this bacterial infections but of course it is high resistance nowadays.
And the question is why are we going and this whole concept of nano technology that we're hearing about this.
And I believe you covered this in the past that it indeed tell what is nanotechnology so what I have over here is Jamie one of actually one of your hair.
You can zoom man and I found it without -- here is that -- her Jamie that I have if you cut this.
It to a 100000.
Pieces now we're talking about in that know me either so it's ten to the minus nine.
We're talking about this so there -- level we're talking about the genetic level why is that important instead of giving antibiotics for the entire system.
Or -- being chemotherapy for the entire system now -- -- talking about target therapy.
We're using this nano particles that can actually getting to the bacteria or the cancer cells and then we can -- infrared see them -- zapped him.
Without removing that this is going to change the future of medicine this is going to change the future of surgery and we're very excited about -- Song you -- I agree with David totally on this by the way this is this just brought to you by the same people this is brought to you by the same people that brought to penicillin back in 1940.
This is the Department of Defense that the right people to be studying -- remain -- in combat at first.
You know what's really exciting about this that it is targeted as David says antibiotics -- running out of usefulness with antibiotics we're getting more -- Resistance.
They are they target only the cell -- certain proteins and bacteria figure it out -- figure out the combination to the -- you get resistance.
We need a new technology this one uses genetics spliced right into the sell it goes right for the tissue that's affected and -- You know there's already -- case.
Of some prime mates who had the a bowl a virus and we've given this nano technology.
This is an amazing amazing amazing -- relative -- I think they've been working on this for about five to seven years already and it's -- really moving technology.
You know for example in diabetes are going to put like -- -- in there under the skin.
And you can basically zapped the laser to see what your sugar level is this sort of like pre game and then and injecting yourself -- -- -- so it's it's it's really an amazing technology.
Five years for widespread use but before that we may see certain use this is really really the -- -- the -- not science fiction.
-- -- all that told us earlier strand of hair folks all that information you're gonna.
Little exhilarated you're headed Uday and.
