Blue light is catching a fair bit of notice. As just one example, a Google search will bring up all sorts of information among its 150 million results. Let me distill some of that with a particular focus on blue light and its impact on sleep.
With the growing use of digital screens—including phones, tablets, computers, televisions, and gaming systems—it’s not surprising to learn that 65% of people spend between three to nine hours a day viewing a digital screen. Another 28% spend ten or more hours in front of a screen. Since you’re reading this on a screen, I’m pretty sure you qualify for one of those groups.
I’ve written before about Blue Tech Technology, primarily addressing the impact of blue light on adults, typically due to high computer use. But kids also suffer from the effects. After all, kids’ arms are shorter and the light generated by laptops, tablets, and mobile phones is more intense at that shorter distance.
