    *It's clear as clear can possibly be.*

    Funny/not funny story:

    When I "discovered" Paleo in 2012, I dove in and spent like 6 months straight in my {WINDOWLESS} kitchen. Yeah ~ not an exaggeration. We did not go out to eat, did not even hit a drive through during that time.

    I'm thankful for that part of my journey, because I believe at some point I DID hear this guy called Dr. Jack Kruse on one of my favorite Paleo podcasts. So when an online friend told me years later to look into his stuff more ~ I sure did.

    Bygones. When you know better, you do better.

    George, where are you living in Athens? I'm going to be there in a month. My father is Greek and from Pireaus.

    Hi Jack - Can you point me to the studies and blogs that reference the ATPase spin from sunlight even though ECT is inhibited? I'm presenting to Dr Sachin Patel and Dr Ben House and want to ensure I have the cites for their questions. thanks !

    Why the 4 minutes window? I thought One strong Hit of false Blue light is enough.

    Can someone please post a link to a pair of comfortable red tinted sunglasses? I had to go through a couple of orange before I found a good pair. - Also, what red light do you guys use for when you work on the computer?

    Ok, everyone, I'm serious. We need to talk...........about the light you allow around you as you live.

    It's time for you to see the light.

    Actually, its time for you to not see the light at night.

    In this study of elderly adults, artificial light at night of just over 5 LUX, increased their risk of #diabetes by three times.

    Even at 3 lux, the results were significant. An on/off blinker light on one of your electronic devices can generate three lux of light.

    Continually exposing yourself to light at night is kind of like eating cupcakes 24/7.

    Put the light cupcake down.

    The blue light hazard is so bad I'm going to wear yellow glasses tomorrow when walking to the beach during twilight. Pure white LED + CFL street lamps will liberate vitamin A and destroy disease reversal

    You touch on that a bit in the February 2018 webinar. Just don't know if to take red pair or yellow pair

    Why is the pupillary response the most critical part of the cranial nerve exam diagnosing TBI
    The ipRGCs are known to connect to many brain regions that regulate very different tasks. The cells tell one part of the brain how bright it is outside so that our pupil can rapidly close—in less than a second. When this does not happen with a TBI patient it alerts us there is a problem with the catecholamines like dopamine or with melanopsin damage in the retina due to the liberation of Vitamin A from this opsin. The same ipRGCs also connect to the master clock in the brain that regulates our sleep-wake cycle. However, it takes several minutes of bright light (blue) to make us fully awake. How the same ipRGCs do these very different tasks with different time scales was not clear until now based upon this study. Some clinicians have realized this for a long time and been using the pupillary light test with blue light and red light to see the damage in the eye clock in TBI cases for years.
    The investigators found that the difference has to do with the way that light detected by the retina reaches the brain. By delivering the mini-SOG to the eyes of the mice, they were able to trace the signal to the part of the brain that constricts the pupil in response to light to identify the pathways.
    It turned out these connections were much stronger—similar to water pouring out of a garden hose. Whereas the connection between the ipRGCs and the master clocks in the SCN in the retina were much weaker—more like drip irrigation. This is because the ipRGCs deliver the light signal to the circadian center in the eye clock phenomena through this slower drip system, it takes longer for any meaningful information to reach and reset the brain clock. It also implies since this system works slower in the retina in TBI’s the use of light has to be altered to reduce the symptoms of photophobia and post-concussive effects.

    Here's a new one for Dr. Jack Kruse "I told you so" archives.
    Blue Light at night (bALAN) raises blood glucose, alters insulin response and also increases hunger in DIURNAL rodents.
    "Diurnal" means these animals in the study are naturally active during the daytime like humans and not active at nighttime (nocturnal) like the vast majority of rodents used in studies. So this is an important study because it relates more closely to you (diurnal humans).
    Start taking artificial light at night seriously folks. You may think those weird colored glasses from RaOptics that some of us are wearing at night are funny but it is certainly no joke to your long term health.
