Bright Blue Food Colouring Is Actually Good For You*

Back when I was in primary school all the dairys sold these big, tasty bright blue gobstoppers which turned your whole mouth a brilliant bright blue colour (and also it made your poos turn blue-green). They were all the rage, and all the kids had wicked blue tounges. Then some retard said THEY GIVE YOU CANCER. Parents were shocked and alarmed, dairys were threatened with boycotts, the school banned the horrible balls of cancer. And then a treasured childhood candy disappeared forever.

And now it turns out that an injection of the stuff will make your spine get all fixed up nicely if you injure it*. And it'll even make your skin and eyes turn a wicked as blue colour*. Someone owes me and every other child who missed out on some fun and a potentially spine-healthy candy a bigass apology for that big pile of cancer BS :hmmm:

*If you are a rat.

The article calls the blue skin a "downside"... I think that if I'd just endured a potentially paralysing injury that I'd happily accept a big shot of dye that made me turn bright blue for a little while. I think the colour of my skin would be the least of my worries if I was faced with never walking again.

Hell, if it only lasts for a day or so I'd consider shooting myself up with the stuff just for a giggle...

I want to inject myself with that stuff... But at the same time I realise that that would be a vastly dumb thing to do, what with it not having been tested or nothing :(

Nah, it just has a broken back from the people doing the experiment dropping a weight onto its back...

Are you sure they haven't just trained it to lie down and rest it's chin on the block?
