OT: Not sure why a smile crossed my mind when I read this in the paper today. Maybe because I heard it would cost in excess of $100k to be treated here for brain cancer. Maybe because I'm not really sure what "proton therapy" is, do they use Pi-Meson's? I think insurance companies and people in general are saying it's just too damn expensive.If they do use pi-meson's then it is a great idea and they just need to lower the cost, perhaps the government could take it over.
