However I still think even though it is only 1mm in diameter, its still a bit bigger than what I'd like crawling in my body.

I guarantee Nanobots will cure any and all types ofcancer, aids, obesity, clogged veins, diseases in the next century.

If you think about it, anti-virus software is the equivalent of what I'm trying to proclaim. A virus is spread through the network (veins). To stop it you must download (inject) software (nanobots) onto (into) your computer (body) to stop the virus from spreading (like cells).

Time will only tell.
