Most people think of LEDs as lights for decoration, but Dr. Harry Whelan says near-infrared LEDs can help heal wounds and even treat brain tumors. He was inducted in 2000 into the NASA Space Technology Hall of Fame for this research. Whelan is a Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics and Hyperbaric Medicine and director of the Hyperbaric Medicine Unit at the Medical College of Wisconsin. If that weren't enough, he’s also a captain in the US Navy and Senior Undersea Medical Officer for the “Deep Submergence Unit." He spoke with Dan Harmon.
