Just caught this story (posted by Ashton Kutcher via Twitter, got to love that) about how researchers just used the same blue dye used in M&Ms and Gatorade to help rats recover from spinal cord injuries! Science is too cool.

For you science nerds, the paper was published in this week's PNAS:
Peng et al. 2009. PNAS 106:12489.

That one really caught the media's attention. They were talking about it on the Today show on Monday.
