Can light affect your health? In the interview included below, Dr. Alexander Wunsch, a world-class expert on photobiology, shares the hidden dangers of light-emitting diode (LED) lighting that most people are completely unaware of. In fact, this could potentially be one of the most important video interviews I’ve ever done, as LED’s have enormous impacts — not only for preventing blindness as you age, but LED’s are also a pervasive hidden risk factor for sabotaging your health.

Largely as a result of energy efficiency initiatives, there’s been a major transition to using LED as a primary indoor light source. In this regard, it worked like a charm, reducing energy requirements by as much as 95 percent compared to incandescent thermal analog sources of lighting. However, the heat generated by incandescent light bulbs (which is infrared radiation) is actually beneficial to your health, and hence worth the extra cost, while there are major downsides to LEDs that are not yet fully appreciated.

LED lighting may actually be one of the most detrimental non-native EMF radiation sources you’re exposed to on a daily basis, which can have very serious long-term ramifications. Ongoing exposure can lead to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which is the leading cause of blindness in the United States and elsewhere. Other health problems rooted in mitochondrial dysfunction may also be exacerbated, and these run the gamut from metabolic disorder to cancer.
