Just read the headlines:
Magic pill for spine injuries: blue M&Ms?
Rocky Mountain Independent
Blue Food Dye Treats Spinal Cord Injury?
M&M’s, Gatorade May Hold Key To Treating Spinal Cord Injuries
Common, safe blue food dye may treat broken spines
Perhaps the best because it emphasizes RATS in the headline:
Blue Dye Halts Worsening Paralysis in Animal Study
U.S. News & World Report – (a HealthDay News story)
Blue Food Dye Helps Rats With Spinal Injuries-But Also Turns Them Blue
Perhaps the worst, because it actually puts the word “cure” in the headline:
Can blue M & Ms cure paralysis?
The Blue Dye in M&Ms Cures Spinal Injuries
Add to these the recent awful stories on paralysis and spinal cord rehab by ABC and CBS and you can only feel empathy for those suffering with these problems who are jerked around by sensational headlines and sometimes by the stories that follow.
