Absolutely not. Radium is a highly radioactive alkali earth metal, and, though some of the elements from this chemical group are critical for life (if you don't have them you die), this one is to be avoided if it is at all possible. Zero radium is a good amount to have in your body any time. All the time, too.

Why do human bodies need to regulate between 96ยบF and 100ยบF?

It is the temperature range at which the cells that make up the body work the most efficiently. Any lower and they can't support the functions necessary to keep the body alive. Any higher and they begin to "cook". Because of homeostasis and negative feedback. if bodies become too hot or too cold the body is unable to function correctly. For example if various enzymes(the catlysts for chemical reactions in the body) are too hot they cease to function in the body. so the body works to maintain a temperature that it can function correctly at and therefore continue running effectively.
