Outline for Radium at 125 Years

Abstract – Since the announcement of the Curies discovery of radium 125 years ago, the scientific and medical community, as well as the public, have been fascinated with its potential use in treatment of disease. Interest in radium continues into current times in science and medicine, as well as popular literature and the media. Sadly, some of the early radium treatments were not grounded in scientific research, and would now be considered quack medicine. Nonetheless, effective use of radium in cancer therapy did begin in the late 1920s. Additionally, the detrimental health effects of radium used in watch, clock and instrument painting are well documented. However, subsequent research and development through the decades with radium and other radioactive materials have provided significant advances and evolution in medical and industrial applications of radiation. This presentation will provide an overview of the history involving radium, and how the material was produced and used in various medical and industrial applications. From the many positive and negative experiences, one might pose the question was radium a miracle or menace? Mr. Allard will explain his thoughts and conclude with an answer.
