Dim Light at Night Can Impact Offspring’s Immune Response

New research discussed on Healthline shows that night lights — something we often plug into infants’ and children’s rooms — can inhibit the body’s ability to fight disease. This adds to ongoing concerns about the negative effects that artificial light can have on you at night.

This news confirms what I’ve been saying for quite some time: You need to sleep in complete darkness to give your body the natural sleep cycle and regeneration that it needs for optimal health. But, even if you do make sure your bedroom is appropriately dark when it comes time for sleep, it’s also important to know about using proper lighting during your waking hours.

This includes avoiding LED lighting, which can sabotage health and even promote blindness. For that reason, limit your exposure to blue light during the daytime and at night. Swap out LEDs for incandescents or low-voltage incandescent halogen lights. Just remember to get incandescents that are crystal clear and not coated with white to give off a cool white light. You want a 2,700 K incandescent, thermal analog light source. 

Also, be sure to turn off your computer and other electronics at least two hours before bedtime, as exposure to LED-backlit computer screens at night significantly suppress melatonin production and feelings of sleepiness. If using a computer or smart phone, install blue-light-blocking software like f.lux, which automatically alters the color temperature of your screen as the day goes on, pulling out the blue wavelengths. 

After sunset, I don blue-blocking glasses, which can help prevent damage to the DHA essential fat in your retinal pigmented epithelium which is responsible for converting sunlight into vital DC electric current your body needs.
