    Zero Side Effects Cancer Treatment

    This has only been tested on mice so far, but researchers have developed a cancer treatment that essentially turns boron into a mini nuclear bomb. They fire neutrons at boron atoms, thereby splitting their nuclei in a subcritical fission reaction into lithium and helium. The lithium atoms rip through the cancer cells and destroy them, but no harm is done to health cells nearby.

    Boron Cancer Treatment

    Yet another interesting proof of concept but it's a very long way away from being a viable therapy.
