Blue Dye Found in M&Ms Heals Spine

Here's an interesting CNN article I stumbled upon today. Researchers have found that the same blue dye used in M&Ms and Gatorade can heal and even protect spinal cord injuries. When tested on mice, the only side effect was the subject temporarily turning blue. Now, considering I'm scheduled for an MRI on Monday morning for what I believe is a herniated disc, I'm thinking I might need to make a stop at Walgreens on the way home.
