Facebookiya Nationalists often quote Israel as being ideal Nation to follow.
If I share this with them that Israel is thinking to ban LED bulbs, what will be their reaction, keeping in mind Indian govt’s LED scheme obsession? 🙂
Their obvious reaction : “You are anti-national, anti-modi! ” 😀 😀
“In earlier studies on the effects of artificial light, Prof. Haim, head of the Center for Interdisciplinary Chronobiological Research at the University of Haifa, linked artificial light to obesity and cancer.
In this latest study, conducted by astronomers, physicists and biologists from ISTIL- Light Polution Science and Technology Institute in Italy, the National Geophysical Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, and the University of Haifa, researchers for the first time examined the differences in melatonin suppression in a various types of light bulbs, primarily those used for outdoor illumination, such as streetlights, road lighting and mall lighting.
The researchers suggest limiting the use of white light and using only the amount of light needed for a task.
As a first step in Israel, the Standards Institution of Israel should obligate bulb importers to state clearly on their packaging what wavelengths are produced by each bulb. If wavelength indeed influences melatonin production, this is information that needs to be brought to the public’s attention, so consumers can decide whether to buy this lighting or not, Prof. Haim says.”
Forget BJP, forget Modi, for your family’s better health, reduce exposure to artificial light! That is best energy saving! 😉 😛
