The importance of using the heavy alpha particles in simulation experiments to find the appropriate energy for destruction cancer cells has multiple applications in physics and medical physics. It is found that the probability of destruction of cancer cells increased at energies lower than few 20 MeV and exponentially decreasing at high energies larger than 20 MeV. The programming language FORTRAN - 90 was used for a required calculation. Different kinetic energies of the incident alpha particle (T = 0.05, 1, 2, 2.5 MeV / u) to destroy cancer cells were employed. The energy loss of incident particle was calculated by dielectric formalism using model Plasmon pole approximation (PPA) model in two target , which are Liquid water and DNA , which more than one wavelength of the incident particle (Brandt and Kitagawa Model) and (Kaneko Model) Good agreement is with previous work was achieved.
