blue light gives cancer the blues

srsly, blue lights make cancer cells suicidal.

according to a small study conducted by student dentists, anyway.

exposing tumors in mice to the blue curing light used by dentists (to help fillings harden faster), lead to around 10% of the cancer cells committing suicide and greatly reduced growth rates amongst the remaining.

how weird is that? who knew dental students even studied cancer?
