Shingeki no Kyojin

So I want to talk about these crystals more. We were all on to something the other day and I feel like we didn't get in deep enough.

These crystals glow. Nothing in nature magically "glows." It's obvious at this point that these rocks are piping hot radium. This also actually explains why Uri got so sick up until the next inheritance ceremony (very thin, weak, dark circles, needed to walk around with a cane etc,.)

This leaves me to believe that titans don't actually run off of sunlight itself, but instead the actual UV radiation from the sun.
It's up in the air though whether titan shifters are more susceptible to cancer and radiation poisoning, but I'm leaning more towards yes going by what Reiner said about living short lives.
