NEW LED BULBS TO PROTECT MELATONIN PRODUCTION?

    A now well-known problem caused by blue radiation in LED bulbs is that they cause a substantial and physiologic noticeable decrease in the concentration of melatonin in the human body. Melatonin is known as a hormone that regulates sleep and wake cycles (circadian or diurnal rhythms of the body), its release precedes falling asleep.
    It has been proven in the literature many times that maintaining an optimal level of melatonin can prevent and even treat certain types of cancer (breast cancer, prostate cancer, and colon cancer), the risk of which increases greatly with age, and a violation of circadian rhythms can lead to an imbalance of the correct metabolism in general.
    The psychophysiological effect of light from sources with a linear and unbalanced spectrum should not be underestimated by anyone—such light can provoke irritability and even cause depressive states. Light works in non-linear fashion and this is why its effects as so misunderstood in biology. And numerous studies on the impact of computer screens and smartphones, which also use blue LEDs, even show that they can accelerate aging and cause brain diseases that are explosive in man today.
    The innovative composition of LED is shown in the paper below. lampshttps://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlelanding/2019/CC/C9CC04973H#!divAbstract

    I didn’t pay to read the article. I wonder if the study measured the amount of flicker or discussed the flicker effect in this technology.

    Obviously going to bed when it’s dark out and getting up at sunrise is far optimal than using any artificial light at night, but I hope this tech gets demanded in as many applications as possible. Im so sick of the led streetlights. Even doctors recommend a color temp of no greater than 3000k at night. https://www.cnn.com/2016/06/21/health/led-streetlights-ama/index.html
