replicator technology now?

Merry Christmas, or Happy Hanukkay, everyone! I hope you are all surviving the winter.
I was trying to search, to make sure this subject hasn't already been started, but I accidentally started this post. So, please forgive me if this is a duplication.
Today, while reading STNG's Technical Manual, it seemed to indicate that replicators used about 37 million electric volts (MeV), to dematerialize food items. Medical facilities can currently accelerate proton beams to as much as 250 MeV (Wikipedia, "Proton Therapy"). So, unless boosting its frequency to 25.1 gigahertz (GHz), then replicator technology might be possible now!
What do you think?
