The "Fantastic Voyage" series of articles on GreenMedInfo will attempt to take you on a journey through the human body using video and graphical representations for a better understanding of recent research 'breakthroughs' that may be important to human health.
The quest to understand the inner workings of the human body have captivated our minds for centuries. Currently, much progress has been made and visually represented using some of the most sophisticated tools known to mankind. We are beginning to understand the placement of not only molecules, but also the arrangement of ions and how they affect the expression of DNA in real time.
In particular, carbon-oxygen hydrogen bonding in biological structure and their impact on protein and nucleic acid structure, molecular recognition and enzyme catalysis has been under appreciated in the biomedical literature. In other words, unresolved questions are being answered that have been neglected for years. Hopefully, the "Fantastic Voyage" series will provide some answers.
Electric Fields are used to interrupt cancer cell division in a video presented at TEDMED. Bill Doyle presents a new approach, called Tumor Treating Fields. Still in its infancy - and approved for only certain types of cancer - the treatment comes with one big benefit: quality of life.
What's all the fuss about electric fields?

Specifically, low-intensity electric fields are proving to be a new therapeutic modality for solid tumors.
This series of articles will focus on the light, electric fields, magnetics and the elements,
