The dangerous Zika virus may actually save lives.

A new study found that the virus kills brain cancer stem cells.

The findings suggest the power of the virus -- known for killing cells in the brains of fetuses -- could be directed at malignant cells.

Researchers say the Zika virus can kill the kind of cells that tend to be resistant to current treatments and lead to death.
