What are the negative effects of Blue Light?
Blue light causes increase eye fatigue and strain after prolonged exposure to cell phone screens and computer monitors.
Studies have shown that blue light exposure can disrupt circadian rhythms of the body causing poor sleep patterns. The circadian rhythms are affected due to lower levels of melatonin secretion following prolonged blue light.
This has been linked to changes or spikes in blood sugar at night as well as increased cancer risks due to lower levels of melatonin.
