According to Dr. Leland Stillman’s Facebook page, he is a physician with an interest in how the environment affects human health. Last month he posted a 4 ½-minute video about 2011 research on how LED light affects our minds and our sleep.
Because blue light from LED screens can keep us awake and stimulated, some people really like it. Unfortunately, it can also prevent us from sleeping well. Many health experts have warned about this especially in regard to how LED light from screens affects children. Blue light blocking glasses can help as well as prevent macular degeneration and blindness. Some doctors also recommend replacing all LED light bulbs with incandescent bulbs for overall better health.
Despite warnings and opposition from many experts – including the American Medical Association – many American communities are installing LED street lights anyway (see 1, 2, 3). No matter how they try to spin this as beneficial, research says otherwise.
