Nanomedicine Has Arrived Says Lancet

As Betterhumans notes, nanomedicine - a vital component of future healthy life extension therapies - has officially arrived. Work has been going on for a while, of course, but the scientific community is realizing that positive publicity is important in this age of strong and influential anti-progress, anti-technology groups. The article includes quotes from Robert Freitas, who has a commentary here on the Longevity Meme. "The near-term benefits of nanomedicine are enormous. In the longer term, nanomedicine will be the keystone of 21st century health care."
