Abstract

REFERENCE is made in NATURE of December 9, 1939, p. 973, to a paper (J. Roy. Soc. Arts, Dec. 8, 1939) entitled “The Penetration of Rays through the Skin, and Radiant Energy for the Treatment of Wounds”, in which I express the view that we would be little the worse off if all the radium now buried in deep holes for security from bombing remained there, and states that the Cancer Act is Great Britain's reply to the question whether monetary influence determines the practice of radium therapy in Great Britain.
