The smartphones and tablets that you probably have in your hand or house right now, as 90% of Americans do, can result in some pretty bad things to your health and biology, ruining your mitochondria is one of the worst things they do.
Blue light is one of the rarest wavelengths of light in nature. So over time your body has evolved to use this light as an operating signal.
What kind of operating signals?
For one, the blue light emanating from these devices signal your body to suppress melatonin secretion. Melatonin is a crucial hormone for a good nights sleep and mitochondrial health. So if you’re using your phone or any type of LED screen a few hours before bedtime, you’re trashing the quality of your sleep and slowly killing your mitochondria. When your sleep isn’t good, a process your body uses to repair itself during sleep called autophagy isn’t good either. All of this leads to bad health news for you.
Instead, you might want to think about reading a...
There’s some new research out recently showing that women who sunbathe are more likely to live longer than women who don’t! The study looked at almost 30,000 Swedish over a period of twenty years.
Heart disease being one of the big factors that decreased in women who regularly get some sun.
But this was the craziest quote in the study…..
“We found smokers in the highest sun exposure group were at a similar risk as non-smokers avoiding sun exposure, indicating avoidance of sun exposure to be a risk factor of the same magnitude as smoking,” said Dr. Pelle Lindqvist, lead author of the Journal of Internal Medicine study.
“Guidelines being too restrictive regarding sun exposure may do more harm than good for health.”
Read that again.
Yes you read that right. Avoiding the sun may be as big of a risk factor to your health as smoking cigarettes is. You can see the full article and study here: Sun Avoidance as Bad as Smoking
Whats a good way to...
Welcome to another Blue Light Diet Declassified video post. In this series, we reveal some of the video training and tips that you get to see when you enroll in our Blue Light Detox Program or read the Blue Light Diet book.
In the video below, you will learn why the traditional orange tint blue blockers are not good enough for optimal night time protection from artificial light at night.
***IF YOU FOUND THIS VIDEO VALUABLE, PLEASE GIVE IT A SHARE ON YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE***
SO as you learn in this video, orange tinted blue blockers still let some of the melatonin suppressing green light spectrum in through the lens. While you can see better in orange tints which makes them great for driving at night or going out to dinner, if you want complete protection at night you need a pair of green AND blue light blocking glasses.
We test and recommend many great pairs of green and blue light blockers in The Blue Light Detox program. You can find the glasses used in this video at ...
Yes the name of the book is The Blue Light Diet and the name of the online video training course is The Blue Light Detox Program.
But its not all about blue light, which can be good or bad for you depending on the time of day you get your blue light.
The goal of the book and program is to get you to start thinking about light just the same way you think about your nutrition and diet. Because light can do the same good or bad things to you that food can do. It can create a health heaven or health hell for you.
Being healthy has a lot to do with just getting back to nature. We’re surrounded by so much artificial light, but what your body is screaming for is just some natural sunlight.
Have you ever been on a diet, made good initial progress but then just couldn’t seem to lose the amount of weight you wanted? Or would you like a way to lose weight and lower your BMI that doesn’t involve diets or exercise?
Well the answer to your problem might be as simple as getting...
Ok so I have a few favorite blue blockers but the EMR Cyclops glasses are tied for my favorite "out of the box" green and blue light blocking glasses.
These are the kind of glasses with red lenses for nighttime use. The red lenses block blue and green light.
The scratch resistant coated red lenses in the EMR Cyclops glasses block 99.99% of light from 400nm to 550nm. They also lock 90% of the light from 550nm to 570nm. This wavelength range includes the violet, blue and green light spectrums and is more than enough protection to ensure your melanopsin photoreceptors are safe and melatonin is not suppressed and instead runs smoothly throughout the night.
You can get these glasses here http://www.bluelightdetox.com/emr
Watch this short video below and then I'll dig into some more EMR Cyclops details below the video.
As you can see, the overall EMR glasses look pretty cool. They are not big and bulky but at the same time, the red lenses cover a lot of area around your eyes.
Watch this 12 minute video below, originally posted to The Blue Light Diet Facebook page, and you will be able to see with your own eyes the difference between natural sunlight and indoor artificial light that has been altered by man. More importantly, I go over exactly why indoor artificial light is so bad for your health. The light you are exposing yourself to every day is very different from the light that your body evolved to live under. This artificial light is probably the #1 health mistake you are making today. Watch this video now and you will get it.
Because of how artificial light is made, you are most likely suffering from severe blue light toxicity. Artificial light contains no UV, very little red and infrared wavelengths. The red and infrared wavelengths of light regenerate all the damage that the blue light wavelength does to you. Since you are living under this artificial light day and night, your body is undergoing way more damage because there is so...
I want you to forget for a moment how blue light and artificial light at night (ALAN) probably a major contributing cause of breast cancer. For instance, if you're a night shift worker, like a nurse, you better stop working the night shift ASAP.
If you're unfamiliar with this blue light toxin just read our book or download our free guide to get started.
Today I want you to just share this article with someone who is fighting breast cancer because this knowledge will help them in their fight. Big time.
In this short article, you will learn how darkness at night can slow or prevent the growth of breast cancer and see a new breast cancer study that shows how artificial light at night can make one of the most prescribed drugs to fight breast cancer, Tamoxifen, kind of worthless. We're not going to do a deep dive, we're just going to skim the surface so you have enough information to make an informed decision. I'm going to try to make this a quick, 5 minute read.
