The war between the human and the disease kingdom has existed since ancient times. With the progress of human science and technology, numerous new chemical and medical methods have been applied to disease treatment. Although the results are remarkable, there are still some diseases that human beings cannot address. In dealing with this situation, the king of the light kingdom decided to send ultraviolet, blue, and red light soldiers to help. The ultraviolet light soldier tackled the SARS-CoV-2, the blue light soldier fought jaundice, and the red light soldier assassinated cancer. Then, the human kingdom joined the light kingdom and started a war against the disease kingdom.
