Light Kills

4:30 PM -- Yes, everything will kill you. MailOnline brings us the latest, groundbreaking, scientificoid research:

    Simply turning on a light at night for a few seconds to go to the toilet can cause changes that might lead to cancer, scientists claim...

    Dr Rachel Ben-Shlomo, of the University of Haifa, said in the journal Cancer Genetics and Cytogenetics that people waking at night would be best advised not to turn on the light...

    'If you want to get up to go to the toilet, you should avoid reaching for the light switch...'
You can always mop up in the morning.
