    The retina is made up of two main layers. There is an inner layer of 'seeing cells' called rods and cones. These cells react to light and send electrical signals down tiny nerve fibers (which collect into the optic nerve) to the brain. The outer layer - the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) - is a layer of cells behind the rods and cones. The RPE is an insulating layer between the retina and the choroid. These cells help to nourish and support the rods and cones. They pass nutrients from the blood vessels in the choroid to the rods and cones. They also take waste materials from the rods and cones to the blood vessels in the choroid. The RPE can be thought of like a filter, determining what substances reach the retina. Many components of blood are harmful to the retina and are kept away from it by a normally functioning RPE.
    The rods and cones are responsible for vision in different conditions. There are many more rods than cones, and rods are smaller cells than cones: Rods are also never found in the central retina and dominate the periphery of the retina.
    The cone cells ('cones') help us to see in the daylight, providing the basis for the color vision of our eye camera.
    The rod cells ('rods') help us to see in the dark - 'night vision' and they form the gears of the eye clock that projects to the suprachiasmatic nucleus to drive circadian signaling.
    Experiments have shown the RPE can reach temperatures of 40 degrees C! This heat is in the infrared range and it is transmitted away from the retina quickly by water. That water is in our circulatory system. Water is the ideal chromophore for infrared light because of what part of the light spectrum it absorbs. It turns out the choroid has a massive blood supply to serve this purpose. Ocular melanin protects the retina and choroid of pigmented eyes against light-induced cell toxicity. Melanin is designed to absorb all frequencies of UV light and pass it to porphyrins in RBC's and to carotenoids in the retina for storage.
    Dan Oren, MD, PhD, researcher for Yale University and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) indicated that 50 percent of the entire blood volume in the body passes through the eyes in 40 minutes, and that there is a biochemical mechanism of light involving hemoglobin within the blood (280 nm UV light), allowing the eyes to be an appropriate portal for phototherapy treatment. Nature uses this effect to maintain eye's ability to provide camera vision. This helps explain why there is such a long distance between the photo-receptors in the eye and the vascular epithelium. The distance is traversed by a massive exclusion zone built in the ophthalmic artery tributaries in the choroid to protect the retina from radiant energy. https://www.forbes.com/sites/fionam...ight-damages-cells-in-your-eyes/#50ded043384b

    ^^^^This is how smart people make catastrophic errors of thinking when they are missing key pieces of data that trump their theories.
    1G-5G nnEMF = fructose laden cheesecake and nobody realizes it. Allen Frey and Nora Volkow showed it in the literature and Dr. Lustig does not appear to realize it. Dr. Lustig and LCHF Jimmy Moore are going to feel like morons when they both realize what key data they are missing. This defines their Dunning Kruger moment. Dr. Lustig will shit the bed when he realizes he and all his patients live in a 5G cesspool and it is the environment and not the foods really behind the effect since they swim in it 24/7. Jimmy has created his cesspool with his social media empire. This is why his results have been horrendous on his nutritional ketosis platform. #mitochondriacwisdom. Below is Volkow's study in 2011 showing the Effect Frey found in the 1960s for the Navy. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3184892

    I hate blue light at night but I have to say this is pretty spectacular.

    LOOK AT WHAT THEY ADMIT ABOUT THEIR LIGHTS: This should worry everyone in the public a lot: "There should be no worries regarding blue lights emitted from LED street lighting on sleep disruptions. They believe there is nothing different about the blue light from LEDs vs. other light sources, as also discussed by the US Department of Energy. In fact, the current level of blue light is equal to or lower than moonlight, which shines at 4000K."


    THE TAKE HOME: THIS is not a DNA effect. it is mitochondrial DNA effect mediated via melanopsin dysfunction. Melanopsin is bound to Vitamin A and when the weak covalent bond is broken Vitamin A becomes an aldehyde and as a liberated aldehyde, it destroys many classes of photoreceptors and enzymes. Melatonin is the major one which controls mitochondrial autophagy and apoptosis as the picture shows. Then the heme-based photoreceptors in the cytochromes and our blood cells are destroyed. This is not a DNA mediated effect. It affects how energy is made and distributed body wide.

    visible light (390–550 nm at 2.8 milliwatts/cm2) for up to 6 h.

    Wonder what light power density have this light bulb at the 1 meter distance?

    What doesn't this guy know? Light in the primate zoo is very similar to light in the hominid zoo and the results are the same. It is painfully obvious what he is missing. How long do you think it will take for him to get around and reach Jeff Leach's work in Science on this topic? Light at the equator does not vary and no matter what you did to the Hadza their microbiome there was rock solid. Wild primates and wild humans have a lot in common. The most interesting thing is the zoo humans have no idea they have a lot in common with the confined primates because they are being forced to live indoors under blue light. The very same light stress environment we see in US zoo humans in neighborhoods. #mitochondriacwisdom https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=FW3198J83RQ

    The risks are great for women because they are built to be MORE SENSITIVE to blue light and nnEMF to pass the environmental information to the next generation by way of their germ line. Night shifts can cause cancer, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Study finds night shift workers DNA repair mechanisms are impaired, resulting in 30% higher levels of DNA breaks = melanopsin dysfunction of the PER protein at work.

    Jason the Black Swan says,

    Less outside time + more devices = a downstream impact that negatively affects nearly EVERY aspect of health.

    Developing brains don't have a fully-developed myelin sheath that can tolerate these devices.

    A psychiatrist quoted in the article claims "the science at this time doesn't have the evidence to make .. recommendations." #mitochondriacwisdom

    Really? I got a stack of papers for her to review.

    Many people argue that blue light in the day is needed so why block blue light from your digital devices!?

    ☀️ The issue with blue light from your screens is it’s unbalanced against other colors and at a specific intensity throughout the day, it doesn’t change intensity like with the sun

    The study below now proves that artificial blue light from your digital devices in causing apoptosis (cell death) in the human eye and is a complete game changer

    The study used blue light at 449 nm, 458 nm, and 470 nm. The results showed the lower the number nm (more high energy) then blue light the more cell death occurred in the eye.

    This shows that wearing blue light reducing glasses during the day is essential for your health when using digital devices or under artificial light indoors.

    If this causes cell death in the eye I am sure we will see future studies address my thoughts that blue light also induces aging and cell death in the skin.

    If you have to take your contacts out to get in the water when will your intuition begin to inform you that just having them touch your cornea any time is probably not a wise thing to be doing either? This is #mitochondriacwisdom Swimming is a fun way to enjoy your vacation. But keep your contact lenses out of the mix. Take lenses out before you swim to avoid getting germs in your eye that can lead to an infection. https://go.usa.gov/pjwz

    Which is the best full spectrum lamp:

    The Exo terra solar glo or the Exo Terra SunRay?

    Both have spikes.

    Are there other alternatives without spikes?
