A major puzzle of elementary-particle physics is the existence of two stable particles (i.e., those having infinite lifetime), the proton and the electron, with such a large mass ratio. An attempt is made to explain this mass anomaly as arising from the different mechanisms of the gravitational interactions for hadrons and leptons (i.e., the ability of the proton to take part in strong gravitational interactions also) just as the anomalous electromagnetic properties of the nucleons can be traced to the different nature of their electromagnetic interactions.
