    Default Got a nasty virus? Forget drugs...

    ...you can just vibrate them to death with sound waves or lasers!

    http://www.livescience.com/health/08...hattering.html

    Scientists may one day be able to destroy viruses in the same way that opera singers presumably shatter wine glasses. New research mathematically determined the frequencies at which simple viruses could be shaken to death.

    "The capsid of a virus is something like the shell of a turtle," said physicist Otto Sankey of Arizona State University. "If the shell can be compromised [by mechanical vibrations], the virus can be inactivated."

    Recent experimental evidence has shown that laser pulses tuned to the right frequency can kill certain viruses. However, locating these so-called resonant frequencies is a bit of trial and error.

    I know, seems kinda silly but honestly, viruses can adapt to drugs and antibiotics by mutating genetic code. If they are physically compromised by having the outer layers that hold them together by sound or light waves, they can't mutate to adapt to that nearly as well. It could be a definitive score and possibility of eliminating such things as HIV (causes aids), Herpes, HPV, Ebola, Marburg and maybe even cancer.



    So the next time someone tells you that your hobby is silly or you play your music too loud, just tell them that you are performing experiments in curing diseases!
    You're just jealous 'cause the voices don't talk to you!

    Alright, now how do they do it in a human and not destroy the good cells?

    Antibiotics for bacteria
    Vaccines for viruses

    The virus would just adapt and change it's outer protein coat eventually and we'd be in the same place.

    That's positive thinking for ya... ;) Keep it up!

    I actually like hearing about wacky idea's for the future. After all, everyone mocked the idea of a phone in your car... you leave the house to get away from the phone, why would ANYONE want one in their car?!
