Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. According to the CDC, one person dies every 36 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease.

What Exactly Is Heart disease?

Heart Disease is a broad category that describes different heart problems such as Coronary Artery Disease, High Blood Pressure, Cardiac Arrest, strokes, and more. Cardiovascular disease is a buildup of fatty plaques in your arteries, or atherosclerosis that can eventually damage your blood vessels and heart. Plaque buildup causes narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain, or a stroke.

First, before I dive into how Nanotechnology is being used to kill Cancer, we must understand what cancer really is.

Cancer is essentially the abnormal growth of numerous cells. Cancer is not one disease but there are many diseases under this category. In all types of Cancer, some of the cells in the body begin to divide uncontrollably and can spread to different tissues. The human body is made up of trillions of cells-and Cancer begins forming in these cells.

Normally, human cells grow and divide to form new cells. When Cancer develops, this process changes. As cells become more…

The Coronavirus spreads from person to person and can even spread if you do not feel sick or know you are affected. COVID-19 can spread when people breathe, talk, cough, or sneeze-all through respiratory droplets. Therefore, it is crucial to wear a mask to prevent the spread of the virus. Worldwide, there have been over 1.84 Million Deaths!

Recently, researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science have developed reusable-nano-filtered masks. A professor named II-Doo Kim at this Institute of Science claims that this mask can retain maximum filtration efficiency even after 20 washes! …

Not everything always has to be HUGE to make an impact on the world. Remember that saying, “ a small thing goes a long way” — well that is true. Nanotechnology refers to the control of matter on the molecular scale- normally 1 to 100 nanometers.

A nanometer is ONE BILLIONTH of a meter. This can be hard to visualize so here is something to help you! This is 100,000 times smaller than the length of a human hair, and there are 25,400,000 nanometres in an inch!

When you break an object down into the scale of nanometers, the physical…

The Coronavirus has affected the whole ENTIRE world. The time when it affected me was in March of 2020-right before my spring break. This week everyone in my school was hoping to get an extra few days of break. When we first received the email that we would be off that week, we were all extremely excited. Little did we know this break would last almost 6 months!

During my spring break, the whole city shut down including schools, work spaces, stores, restaurants, and everything else you could think of except hospitals and medical care facilities. This is when it…
