Radium (atomic symbol Ra) is element 88, a toxic and radioactive element on the periodic table. It was discovered by Marie Curie. This element does not last for long, as nuclear decay occurs. It is used in experiments involving radiation, as it can provide the necessary subatomic particles. It can replace calcium in your bones and stay there for a long time, posing radiation danger to your body.
