More than 15 years of scientific research show that exposure to blue-rich light in the evening and at night increases the risk for cardiovascular disease by as much as 40 percent for night shift workers.Most energy efficient LEDs in the market today are rich in the blue wavelengths that at night trigger the metabolic processes involved in hypertension, atherosclerosis, and cardiovascular disease through:1.) Disruption of the circadian system (phase shifting and circadian misalignment)2.) Melatonin-suppression and phase shifting3.) Activation of chronic inflammatory processes causing atherosclerosis in blood vesselsTo read the full whitepaper, click here.To combat the detrimental effects of blue rich light…
