Light can promote health
Ultimately, all lighting is designed to meet people’s visual needs.
However, research shows that light can even illuminate and can help people prevent disease.
The effect of light on human health first occurs on the biological clock.
Studies have found that human retinal cells are directly connected to the supernuclear nucleus and have an effect on the secretion of melatonin.
Melatonin is an antioxidant called a “blood cleaner”, which is generally secreted in large quantities after a person goes to sleep.
At night, light can prevent the secretion of melatonin, disrupt the biological clock, and even increase the risk of breast cancer for women who work night shifts for a long time.
“People who often work night shifts need to make good use of light, and artificially create a day and night cycle to keep hormone secretion in the body normal,” said Bachena, director of the Public Relations Department of the National Lighting Agency.
“Light also has a lot to do with vitamin D.
Studies have found that many people currently lack vitamin D in their bodies because they want to minimize exposure to the sun in order to avoid skin cancer. People who have been working indoors for a long time generally lack vitamin D in their bodies.
Using light therapy can reduce the risk of prostate and colon cancer.
Light also produces weight for people with dementia.
These patients often have very irregular schedules. After receiving short-term light therapy, their schedules gradually become more regular.
What’s more interesting is that the wavelength of light will also affect the treatment results.
In addition, studies have shown that light therapy can cure diseases such as pediatric jaundice and psoriasis, as well as seasonal shift syndrome and sleep disorders.
In addition, the therapy can prevent myopia and some airborne diseases.
At the same time, research on how light can help with hypertension and hypertension treatment is generally underway.
“To produce health-friendly light, we need to provide at least 10 times more electricity than current standards.
However, imagine if one day the lighting would not only enable us to see things clearly, but also improve the quality of life and prolong life, that would be great!
