The health risks of light at night. The Good, the Bad, and the Time of Day of Bioactive Blue Light.
Research is showing that nights are a key part of human health.
Dr. Martin Moore-Ede will be presenting new research at the "Lighting for Health and Wellbeing" Conference in a presentation titled "Taking the Obesity and Diabetes Risk out of Light at Night" inNewport Beach, CA on July 27, 2017.
The largest study ever done on diabetes levels around the world revealed last year that the global cost of diabetes has reached $825 billion. Exposure to blue light at night has been found to increase the risk of obesity and diabetes - and with the rise of conventional LEDs in recent years, part of the increased diabetes cost could be due to increased blue light exposure.
