Okay ... Here's the rub:


When Radon 226 is cooled to -195C, it gives off an orange-red light. If
said light was captured and channeled through a fiber-optic cable to a
light pen, and one incised a patient to expose a cancerous tumor, could
one affect said tumor with a Beta burn with the emissions from the light
'laser' pen? And if so, would this be an effective means of eradicating
said tumor? 


How's that for a 'what if' ?
