TED TALK: Shows how electrical fields destroys themselves

TED TALK: Bill Doyle
Treating Cancer with Electrical Fields

Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are the best-known methods for treating cancer. At TEDMED, Bill Doyle presents a new approach, called Tumor Treating Fields, which uses electric fields to interrupt cancer cell division. Still in its infancy — and approved for only certain types of cancer — the treatment comes with one big benefit: quality of life.

FDA has now approved treatment with electrical fields for certain types of cancer. Make sure to read the comments on this talk. The talk and some comments show that most of the work in this area is done outside the United States and that the U.S. is at least 25 years behind some other countries.
