#BRINGBACKTHENIGHT: International Dark Sky Association: Day 2- Ill Health

“Many species (including humans) need darkness to survive and thrive.” — American Medical Association Council on Science and Public Health (2012)

Exposure to artificial light at night can harm your health

Not All Artificial Light Is Created Equally

Exposure to blue light at night is particularly harmful.

Unfortunately,most LEDs used for outdoor lighting — as well as computer screens, TVs, and other electronic displays — create abundant blue light. 

To minimize harm from blue light, choose the right light bulb and download a color temperature app that adapts your electronic screen to the time of day – cool light during the day and warm light at night.
