Scientists recommend to remove the electronic staff away from your bedroom and cover them good to remove the risk from disease like cancer, reports British newspaper The Daily Mail. Removing all sources of artificial light during sleaping can stop the harmful impacts of our biological rhythm witch is connected with disease like cancer, diabetes, depression and obesity.
In the words of Richard Stevens, a breast cancer researcher, people must start appreciating the dark because it helps the brain to prepare for sleep, something that the light has a counter-effect on.
Stevens further explains that being in the dark at night is as important to health as dreams are. But, while the significance of dreams is widely accepted, the importance of the dark is still undervalued.
According to him, the proper function of the human biorhythm is closely related to the sunlight due to the fact that it influences the secretion of hormones, function of genes, body temperature and metabolism. On the other hand, artificial lights can lead to a complete disorder.
Stevens highly recommends removing all sources of light that keep you awake from your bedroom. In case you do have to get up during the night, use dark red lights as these are less intense.
Furthermore, Stevens warns of the damage caused by artificial street and house lights in his paper published in the Philosophical Transactions B Journal.
In his view, intense night lights should be given the same consideration as climate changes. He further adds that artificial lights can negatively affect children, including unborn babies. According to scientists, these lights can inhibit the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that is extremely important for fighting breast tumor.
Researches suggest that women working night shifts are at a higher risk of breast cancer. In men, night shifts are a risk factor for development of prostate or bowel cancer.
Other researches are showing the possible connection of artificial lightning during the night and the occurrence of diabetes, depression and obesity.
