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.
CIRCADIAN Light fixtures are autonomous, easily installed by any electrician and provide high quality white light with the optimal bio- active blue levels based on time of day, season, and location.The Health Problem with LEDs
Most LED and fluorescent lights on the market today increase obesity, diabetes, heart disease risks, and reproductive problems and cause up to a 50-65% higher rate of breast cancer, prostate cancer, and gastrointestinal cancer when used in the late evening or at night. Mounting medical evidence shows they provide too much Bio-Active Blue during the night, and too little during the day, leading to circadian rhythm disruption, mood and health disorders and low productivity.
