Story at-a-glance -

  • Before the advent of artificial lighting, many went to bed and got up with the sun; lighting at night comes at a price as it affects health, interrupting sleep patterns, circadian rhythms and the perpetuation of animal species
  • Recent data show blue light from digital devices activates retinal in your eye to attack macular photoreceptor cells, accelerating age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness
  • Exposure to blue light also affects your ability to produce enough melatonin to achieve quality sleep, thus increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke, obesity and other health problems
  • Data show vitamin E reduces damage from blue light; consider using blue light-blocking glasses while using digital devices, using LED lighting with safer rating, and eating foods high in omega-3 fats and anthocyanins to protect your sight
