"Nanotechnology CAN CURE 'CANCER' "

I recently read some where that nanotechlogy can be used to cure cancer.what do you think about it. It is possible with biomedical nanotechnology.There are so many ways in which nanoparticles and nanotechnology can be used to cure cancer cells.
The main problem with conventional treatments is the lack of specificity. Instead of killing the cancer cells, the chemicals kill normal healthy cells. Healthy cells can be protected when the specificity of the drug is high. Nanotechnology can help us do just that. Combining a nano vehicle with a poison can help us deliver the drug directly into the desired tissues, improving specificity many fold and consequently, destroying the cancer cells.
