Cure Cancer With Your Personal Computer

Cure Cancer With Your Personal Computer
I was reading this report from ABC and thought that this story is worth mentioning here. The report says that you can contribute towards cancer research by allowing the supercomputer of the researchers to use some of the computing powers of your home pc.

The idea is this: you can download a small program and install it on your computer and then forget about it. The researchers would use that extra computing power on your computer, to expand the capabilities of their super computer.

The report says that, modern computers are incredibly powerful machines whose processing abilities are seldom used to their full abilities. Regardless of how hard you push it, you're probably not using as much of the computer's power as you think.

Is it safe, that's the next question?
With widespread reports of Internet virus attacks, worms, Trojan horses, spyware and identity theft, some might fear that participating in a grid will make them more vulnerable to becoming a virtual victim.

"We are comfortable saying that on any computer you're willing to browse, you should be comfortable putting our client on," said Armentrout of his company's grid software. "We say it's safer than surfing."

Litow said that IBM is also committed to keeping participants safe, and that in the year IBM's World Community Grid has been in existence - a network of humanitarian grid projects - there hasn't been a single problem.

Cancer
Cancer is a very common disease, approximately one out of every two American men and one out of every three American women will have some type of cancer at some point during the course of their life. Cancer is more common in the elderly and 77 percent of cancers occur in people above age 55 or older. Cancer is also common in children. Cancer incidence is said to have two peaks once during early childhood and then during late years in life. No age period is completely exempted from development of cancers. Some cancers occur predominantly in the elderly, other types occur in children, Cancer occurs in all ethnic races, however the cancer rates and rates of specific cancer types may vary from group to group. Late stages of cancer may be incurable in most cases, but with the advancement of medicine, more and more cancers are becoming curable.
