Using sound waves on cancer cells

I listened to the most recent podcast of “This American Life” this evening, and was intrigued by one of the stories that followed a music teacher who teamed up with a cancer researcher to find ways to use sound, or rather electromagnetic waves in this case, to kill cancer cells.

If that’s not one important use of sound (arguably music), I don’t know what is!

You can hear that portion of This American Life right here.
