In a recent Journal, Whitley talks about waking up to find a mysterious blue light flooding his apartment. There may have been a reason for this: a new study shows that blue light can kill superbugs!
Science Daily reports that two common strains of antibiotic resistant staph bacteria, which are commonly known as MRSA, were virtually eradicated in the laboratory by exposing them to a wavelength of blue light, in a process called photo-irradiation.
Researcher Chukuka S. Enwemeka says, “It is inspiring that an inexpensive naturally visible wavelength of light can eradicate two common strains of MRSA.”
