The Dark Side of Blue Light

Well, if ISIS and ebola are not enough, here is a killer that is staring you in the face RIGHT NOW! Harvard Medical School claims that blue light, the light emitted by your computer, disturbs your ability to sleep, and contributes to the causation of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. 

What you can do to keep these symptoms at bay: 

Use dim red lights for night lights. Red light has the least power to shift circadian rhythm and suppress melatonin.

Avoid looking at bright screens beginning two to three hours before bed.

If you work a night shift or use a lot of electronic devices at night, consider wearing blue-blocking glasses.
Expose yourself to lots of bright light during the day, which will boost your ability to sleep at night, as well as your mood and alertness during daylight.

There is also sunset it changes your monitor to a redder, more natural temperature.
