Theory of Gravity

When I took chemistry and physics, much time was spent on explaining the activities of protons and electrons in atoms.  I was taught about valence electrons, protons in the nucleus, orbits, shells, probability factors pertaining to the location of electrons around the nucleus, and a multitude of other accepted ideas how the system functions. These ideas work really for almost all reactions and physical characteristics for inter-atom relationships.  One particle of a nucleus, however, was neglected because it was considered to be inert for virtually all chemical and physical reactions.  Except for its existence in a nucleus, in which is considered to be a neutral particle, it was never even mentioned in most of my classes.
One should ask oneself, “Could neutron play a role in the gravitational force issue?” Neutrons, when free from the nucleus, are highly radioactive.  If one started with a pile of neutrons (Ignore for the sake of argument that it is a gas.) weighing approximately 13,534 tons sitting in your driveway today, after exactly 24 hours (112.5 half-life cycles), you would only have ONE lone neutron left weighing 1.6 times 10 to the minus 24th grams.
My theory is: That neutrons in the nucleus are NOT stable.  My theory is that the same disintegration process that occurs outside the nucleus also occurs within the nucleus.  The disintegration products of a neutron are a proton and an electron outside the nucleus with a release of energy.  It would be fair to expect that this radioactive decay would behave the same in the nucleus, except that an electron being released into a proton-rich environment should normally never leave the nucleus and the energy produced during disintegration would be consumed or possibly converted to another energy form during the recombination.  The net charge shift that should occur during this transformation along with the double energy conversion could be the source of gravitational force.
Lighter naturally occurring radioactive elements, usually disintegrate by beta (high energy electron) emission, implying that are not quite enough protons in the nucleus to effectively capture all the electrons released during a neutron disintegrations.  Most of the heavier naturally occurring radioactive elements disintegrate by ejecting a helium ion consisting of two positively charged protons and two neutrons.  The ejection of this positively charged particle is probably caused by two or more adjacent neutrons disintegrating simultaneously near the ejected particle.  The repulsion of the positive charges would likely cause the helium ion to be ejected from the nucleus.  In these radioactive disintegrations, detectible energy and mass changes can be observed. Neutron disintegrations within the nucleus cannot unless be observed unless I am correct and the energy released is in the form of a gravitational force.
The hydrogen molecule and atom have no neutron and does not fit this theory.  It does have mass and can have electrostatic and magnetic properties.  In our atmosphere, all gasses except inert gasses are generally found in the diatomic form.  In the near vacuum of space (varying degrees of gas pressure can be found in space) these same gasses can be found in the atomic form.  They have magnetic and electrostatic properties which can cause inter-atomic attractions.
This is a theory.  It may be right and again, it may not be right, but it should provide a new way to view the question.  Two of my former professors whom I presented this theory to, asked me to publish it because they felt it made sense and had merit.
It is kind of a spooky concept that radioactive disintegrations within the nucleus may be a natural phenomenon.
