    I need somebody to even try to tell me that James Brown was not rocking blue blockers in his April 1988 CNN interview that was awesome by the way. Bear with me I'm catching up with the news... I'm caught up to 1988 so far.

    Big swing and a miss from the 'leader' in healthcare education.

    The big issue with blue lit LED devices is the potential to develop dry eyes and eyestrain?

    And LED TV's are not an issue because there's nothing coming out of the screen to hurt you like the old TV's.... But watch out for neck strain!

    Do TV screens invite eye problems?
    Mom warned you not to sit too close to the TV when you were a kid. "In the past, screens were bombarded with energy. That emission back in the 1950s was too strong. In the '60s and '70s, they made safer TVs. Now with LCD or LED TVs, there's nothing coming out of the screen to hurt you," says Dr. Matthew Gardiner, an ophthalmologist with Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary.

    Watching TV for long periods won't generally lead to computer vision syndrome, since you're using your distance vision for viewing, not close-up vision, which risks eyestrain. However, sitting too close to a big-screen TV may cause neck strain. "You'll only see what's right in front of you, and end up looking around to see all aspects of the screen," says Dr. Gardiner.

    For optimal viewing, TV retailers suggest sitting seven to 11 feet away from a 55-inch TV screen or five to eight feet away from a 40-inch TV screen.

    BTW, my brother in law has diabetes and glaucoma - but which comes first, the chicken or the egg. Maybe Bono should have been wearing blue blockers before he got glaucoma.

    TV's are really awful
    Probably every performer in showbusiness is blue light toxic.

    Outdoor light at night linked with increased breast cancer risk in women
    https://medicalxpress.com/news/2017-08-outdoor-night-linked-breast-cancer.html

    Women who live in areas with higher levels of outdoor light at night may be at higher risk for breast cancer than those living in areas with lower levels, according to a large long-term study from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The link was stronger among women who worked night shifts.


    The study will be published online August 17, 2017 in Environmental Health Perspectives.

    People with EDS are more likely to get CFS.

    EDS means problems with collagen, CFS is a disease of lack of energy / electrons. Less collagen = less EZ = less CD = Less electrons and protons to do work = Less likely to recover from bacteria/virus/mold/etc.

    Interesting because double jointedness runs in my family yet I am not, maybe my collagen isn't so good though.
