For today's Talk at Ten, we bring you another episode of Science Studio.

On this episode, Dr. Keith Pannell visits the MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center in Houston, where he talks with clinical physicist Michael Gillin.

Gillin explains why protons, and not other elementary particles, are used in this treatment, and why proton therapy harms less healthy tissue than standard radiation treatment for cancer.
