Advancements in medicine have allowed people to heal the sick. Even though these accomplishments in medicine have cured some of the problems, there are those that even medicine cannot fix. So we look to science for help, and there is one field that is close to revoluAonizing the world with their advancements in technology. This field has a specific name: Nanotechnology. It’s long-­‐term goal is the full manipulaAon of atoms, molecules, and materials to form structures on the scale of one billionth of a meter, which is commonly known as a nanometer; not only can we use this to improve the human body, but as well as change the way we live. Unfortunately, as visual in the world of science, there are moral, ethical, and religious conflicts that come along with change. Thus, the implicaAons of this technology are far too great for us to ignore.
