Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Radiation therapy as a cancer treatment Cancer is a very deadly sickness,for the main reason that it hasno known cure. BUT THERE IS A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN! RADIATION THERAPY Radiation therapy is prescribedradiation. It uses gamma rays tohit cancer tumors with highfrequency, high energy waves. The gamma rays smash intothe cancer cell's DNA. Thisdestroys the DNA by tearingaway parts of the DNA, changingthe four bases; A, G, C, and T. How Do Gamma Rays Kill Cancer? ... (and Cause It!). YouTube. YouTube, n.d. Web. 14 Mar. 2015. Sources Main idea:Even though gamma rays are very dangerous,it is the great treatment for the'incurable disease,' cancer. THE CURRENT ISSUE Doctors are working on hitting the cancer cells withpinpoint accuracy. Therefore the rest of the body willnot be affected by the dangerous gamma rays. PROS CONS 1) Death of many cancer cells.2) Shrinkage of tumors.3) Mostly painless.4) Organ preservation.5) Stimulates immune response against tumor 1) Possible damage to surrounding organs.2) Inability to kill all of the cancer cells. 3) Occasionally requires surgery afterwards.4) Wound complications.5) Time inconvenience.

Its Hz.range is 10^20 -10^24 Interesting facts about gamma rays and the EM spectrum! The wavelength of a gamma ray is smaller that the width of an atom. All waves on the EM spectrum travelat 300,000,000 m/s (the speed of light).Even though EM waves go through differentmaterials at different speeds the wave isactually just taking a longer path, making ittake a longer time to get through the material.
