Blue light
Published: 17 October 2019  Abstract: Light is necessary for life, but prolonged exposure to artificial light is a matter of increasing health concern. Humans are exposed to increased amounts of light in the blue spectrum produced by light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which can interfere with normal sleep cycles. The LED technologies are relatively new; therefore, the long-term...

Neurochem Int. 2019 Feb 27. pii: S0197-0186(18)30627-2. doi: 10.1016/j.neuint.2019.02.018. [Epub ahead of print] Abstract Neurones are dependent on their mitochondria to produce the necessary amounts of ATP for survival. Retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) have a particularly large number of mitochondria which-unlike neurones in the brain-are exposed to visual light of 400-850 nm. Here we demonstrate that short...

Abstract Published online 2018 Nov 3. doi: 10.3390/cells7110197 The development in digital screen technology has exponentially increased in the last decades, and many of today’s electronic devices use light-emitting diode (LED) technology producing very strong blue light (BL) waves. Long-term exposure at LED-BL seems to have an implication in the dehydration of the epidermis, in the...
