Damm, warm light and blue supressing glasses makes me sleepy and cool light slowly kills my eyes.

Everyone knows about all this “blue light is bad” stuff from decades ago.

If you read what your article says…
“alpha tocoferol, a Vitamin E derivative and a natural antioxidant in the eye and body, stops the cells from dying”
So unless you’re getting old, there is no problem with regular exposure to blue light from screens or other stuff.
Otherwise everyone would be blind from sunlight.
.
Obviously shining a high intensity blue or UV light directly into your eyes will cause damage, that’s just common sense, don’t do that.

I thought this was going to be about those blue LED Christmas lights that I hate.

I read the article and did not find anywhere that blue light is “very very bad”.

link to djozz tests 

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”   (Gus Speth)

Obviously the news article was trying to inform people that man made blue lights can speed up macular degeneration. Well the sun can do the same. Either way you’re hosed. You can lead a horse to water but you can not make him drink.

A long time ago people were afraid of understanding how the natural world worked. Fear, ignorance, superstition, sudo scientific beliefs, and religious zealots, were prevalent. These times were called the dark ages.

I think someone is reading too far into a scientific article and becoming a bit paranoid…

Avoid blue light. Eat fresh veggies and fruits; avoid junk food. Don’t smoke cigarettes. Exercise. Go to the gym. Take a bicycle to work. Do yoga. Meditate.

You will still die.
