I am staying at India. Just now we are decorating our new flat. My father is 
planning to apply RADIUM COLOUR at ceiling (colour mixed with radium), to get 
image of Stars at Night. But what we have bee teached is Radium is Harmful and 
may cause Cancer. 

Can you please inform me, is it harmful to use Radium colour? Will it emit 
enough quantity of Radioactive to be harmful? Or amount of emission will be too 
low and not effect us??

I hope, i will get the real informastion fomr here
