Black Female Physicist Uses Nanotechnology and Lasers to Kill Cancer with no Chemotherapy Needed
Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green at the Morehouse School of Medicine, Department of Surgery, has developed a treatment, which wholly eradicates cancer in mice with 100% tumor regression in 15 days, using a single 10-minute laser treatment, with no observable side effects.

The recipient of multiple national and international awards, she is in the midst of a nationwide speaking tour to disseminate information about the treatment. She is giving hope to millions that soon, the procedure will be ready for human trials. Moving from the laboratory to hospital is a $10 million first phase endeavor for which Dr. Green is currently raising awareness and seeking financing support. With funding, Dr. Green can begin the trials in as little as 12 months. At her disposal is Navicent Health, the 7th largest hospital system in the U.S., where the tests will take place.
For Dr. Green, the cancer fight is personal. She founded the 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, the Ora Lee Smith Cancer Research Foundation, in her aunt's name, who died of cancer along with her uncle. The mission of the Foundation is to assure that humane treatment is found to change the way cancer is treated and reduce cancer-patient suffering by providing care that is accessible, affordable, and effective. Dr. Green states, "At 22 years old, I became the primary caregiver to my aunt and uncle who were the only parents I knew. I witnessed the horrors of both cancer and cancer treatments and I knew there had to be a better way."
She is the recipient of a $1.1 million Veterans Administration grant to further the study of cancer. According to the National Institutes of Health, 39.3% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Dr. Green exclaims, "My goal is to change the way cancer is treated. I envision with the proper funding that hospital patient treatment can occur in as little as five years." She is considered in many circles as the new "answer to cancer." Her revolutionary treatment has received national attention from The New York Times to Forbes. For additional information on Dr. Green and LANT, go to www.oralee.org.
