This review article will go over the ramification of nanotechnology or more specifically nanomedicine and nanoparticles on human disorders. Nanotechnology is a broad field and can cover many aspects but this article’s capability is limited and will mainly go over the potential advantages and disadvantages of this upcoming piece of technology. The article attempts to put nanoparticles into perspective by offering simple ratios. It then goes on to talk about the varied types of applications of nanotechnology in fields in and outside of medicine. The article explains the two main types of targeted drug delivery systems: systemic system and pulmonary delivery and then dives deep into the specific effects of nanotechnology on a few particular human disorders like tuberculosis and more. The effects range from reduction of toxicity and minimal side effects to negative impacts on the environment and DNA exposure. We then wrap up this study by looking at prospective gaps in the field like unknown surface properties and social, economic, and legal concerns. This study is designed to give one a deeper overview of the varied range of effects that nanotechnology not only has on the human body but also on areas outside the human body. Furthermore, this study is in no way meant to impersonate someone else’s work nor convince a person to act in a certain way.
