Why should you adjust light of your devices for night shifts and how to do it on Mac.
Is it safe to use mobile phones and laptops at night ?
The blue light emitted by your cell phone screen restrains the production of melatonin, the hormone that controls your sleep-wake cycle (aka circadian rhythm). This makes it even more difficult to fall asleep and wake up the next day. But there are more side effect than just impacting the sleep quality.
As a person who writes this article and works with laptop or mobile device most of day and night except while sleeping, I’ve been somehow noticing the impact on my health specially at nights.
Therefore, my curiosity made me to do some researches and find what are side effects of light emitting from electronic devices at night.
Here is the report by Harvard Medical School, However the title of article is more in favor of the manufactures than the statement of the study they reported.
“Will blue light from electronic devices increase my risk of macular degeneration and blindness?”
They answered: NO
But in following they talk more about the study and their conclusion which is not very low risk neither.
