Advice Includes Replacing LED Bulbs (Which Are Also Eco-Toxic)
Bluelight + RF Radiation from screens = health problems including skin afflictions like hyperpigmentation and premature aging (see 1, 2, 3, 4)! There’s actually been quite a bit of research already published about this. There’s also been quite a bit of research already published about LED light bulbs being biologically and environmentally awful.
Thanks to the New York Times for publishing an article about how Bluelight, LED bulbs, and “Screentime” could be affecting you and your loved ones and what you can do about it:
You’ve probably heard more about the perils of blue light lately because our lives are more likely to be lived indoors and online. Our laptops, phones, tablets, TVs and even LED light bulbs are all sources of blue light. And now that we’re tethered to those devices, are we getting drenched? Should we be more worried about damage to our skin?
Here’s what we know: Compared with the well-understood dangers of ultraviolet light (skin aging and cancer), science isn’t settled on the effects of indoor sources of blue light on skin. It can cause hyperpigmentation and premature aging, but the rest — what dose of it causes trouble, for instance — was debated well before we were confined to our homes.
Here, we’ve checked in with some blue light and skin experts to help us understand the real risks.
On a related note – there is a class action lawsuit against 11 smartphone models for exceeding federal RF radiation safety levels.
