Exposure to excess light; man-made disaster?

Wednesday, December 06, 2017

Floodlight at the Wilson Gymkhana is a cause of worry as locals are troubled by excessive lights. Excessive man-made lights is definitely bad for health. Man-made artificial light sources affect the health of the general public or of light-sensitive people. Floodlights near housing complexes is really a worry. Modern CFLs are essentially flicker-free but there could be some residual flicker and, even if the flicker is not noticeable, it may still be perceived by the brain. Studies reveal that present day children are more exposed and it is a bad sign. Light pollution adversely affects health in number of ways including migraine, sleep disorder, fatigue, stress connected with ill health. The effect of light on cells depends on the radiation and its wavelength, the type of cell, the chromophore, and the chemical reaction involved. There is no remedy to correct eyesight spoiled in such a manner.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You begin the day with optimism and succeed in every endeavor you undertake. Others call it luck, but it is determination and hard work. When negotiating new work today remember to keep your options open and accept less. It could lead to a regular source of income. Accept an invitation, which will be a new experience. Perhaps also bring a new charming person into your life, which will be exciting.
