The Home of the Gators, University of Florida, reported a remarkable discovery that could “starve cancer tumors and prevent side effects from a wide range of drugs.” This discovery is in the form of “a “lock-like molecule” that clasps or unclasps based on exposure to light.” both visible and ultraviolet. It will work to “prevent the formation of tiny blood vessels that feed tumors.” This can surely help stop cancer spread with no side-effects!
