There is a very good use for cotton candy in the medical field right now. It is pretty amazing that this festival and county fair favourite can be used to help regrow human blood vessels! No one really thinks about healthy cotton candy when you think about it being almost all air and sugar how could it be healthy? But it definitely is promoting health in this way of re-growing human tissues and blood vessels.
How they use candy to regrow blood vessels
Imagine a glob of candy, pour some chemical concoction over it and allow it to harden into a mass of a blob. Then immerse in water and let the cotton candy dissolve. Now you have this blob with hollow chambers inside that are almost a perfect replica of how blood vessels would run. Fill those chambers with synthetic blood vessels, place into human tissue where it needs regrowth. The blob is biodegradable so as new tissue and blood vessels grow in and around it, it begins to disintegrate and new tissue and blood vessels take over. Abracadabra you have new tissue and vessels using cotton candy as the basis for growth. Surprised? This is only one of many health benefits this dessert provides!
