We now live our lives indoors. The US Environmental Protection Agency show that on average Americans spend 93 per cent of their lives indoors. This means they only spend a few minutes a day outdoors. Worse still, many people work in front of computer screens and mobile device screens inside offices lit with fluorescent lighting that emit excessive amounts of blue light.
Indoor living takes a toll on the body.
Artificial lights contain too much blue light that harms the eyes and stops production of key hormones in our body. This is because indoor lighting is lacking red and infrared wavelengths. Our body is not designed to process blue light without the presence of red and infrared.
This recent Harvard study on the dark side of blue light helps explain the dangers of too much blue light.
