What's blue light and it's consequences?
Many have heard about blue light, but what are the actual consequences?
Due to the massive use of smartphones & digital screens, modern humans are experiencing constant exposure to blue light.
Understand light - briefly 🌈
Visible light consist of the colors we see. Different colors have different energy-levels (wavelength between 400-700 nm). The energy-wavelength relation is inverse. That means the shorter the wavelength the more energy 🤓.
Violet and blue light has shortest wavelength thus contains most energy.
It used to be only the sun 🌞
Blue light emitted from the sun has historically been important for the creation of life on planet Earth. Without that energy, we wouldn't live.
Blue light from the sun used to be the determiner of our sleep rhythm - it kept us alert during the day, and it's absence put us to sleep at night.
Sleep's devil 👹
Due to digital screens also emitting blue light, for the modern human the sun never sets. At least that's how your body experience it.
Blue light supresses creation of the natural sleep hormone 'melatonin', which led to the fact that WHO has declared a 'sleep-loss pandemic'.
