A New Reason for Diamond Studding

Researchers in Chicago may have found another reason for diamond studding but it doesn't have anything to do with bling.

Studded nano-diamonds embedded in flexible microfilm may be the answer to localized chemotherapy and cancer care.

The tiny diamonds allow chemotherapy medicine to be released slowly over time and reduces the need for chemotherapy injections and the drastic side effects that come along with modern cancer care.
