More than 20 years of scientific research reveal that exposure to blue-rich light in the evening and at night increases the risk for certain types of cancers.

The subject was further explored in 2007 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), which revealed that shift work that impacts natural circadian rhythms is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”

Further exploration of the 2007 findings revealed: 

  • Breast cancer increased 32% - 58% in women regularly exposed to light at night.
  • Prostate cancer increased up to 200% in men regularly exposed to light at night.
  • Blind women have a lower risk of breast cancer, and blind men have a lower risk of prostate cancer that is related to the degree of visual impairment.
More than 15 years of scientific research show that exposure to blue-rich light in the evening and at night increases the risk for cardiovascular disease by as much as 40 percent for night shift workers.

Most energy efficient LEDs in the market today are rich in the blue wavelengths that at night trigger the metabolic processes involved in hypertension, atherosclerosis, and cardiovascular disease through:

1.) Disruption of the circadian system (phase shifting and circadian misalignment)
2.) Melatonin-suppression and phase shifting
