When matter meets antimatter, annihilation.

When antimatter meets cancer? interesting results.

Although beams of charged atomic particles act in the same way as X-rays - interacting with cellular DNA and causing chromosome breaks and cell death - most of their energy can be delivered at a particular point in the cancer.

Little or no energy is deposited beyond the cancer target.

The amount of radiation affecting normal tissues can be reduced to half or even one tenth at the same time as delivering the same or higher dose to the cancer.
That would definitely beat Chemotherapy, which relies on the body's ability to recover faster than cancer might, and just blankets an entire area of the body.
