Is artificial light making us sick?Created by:
Humans and animals have naturally evolved in the light-dark cycle of day and night. In today’s modern world, however, 75 percent of the global population is exposed to light during the night. Though not entirely harmful, recent studies have found that disrupting the normal light-dark cycle can lead to bone deterioration, decrease of skeletal muscle function, and having the body go into a pro- inflammatory state, among other effects. I guess this is bad news for insomniacs, late sleepers, and of course those on constant graveyard shifts. The good news is that, such effects are reversible. As we can't just, well, turn off all the lights, what can you think can be done regarding this? Any thoughts on these findings?
