LED lamps can make us blind


An investigation carried out by Spanish researchers from the Complutense University of Madrid has revealed that even the seemingly greener and economical LED (LED) lamps has its dark side. The bottom line is that LED-lamps may have a negative impact on human health and even make him blind.

Spanish scientists attribute this to the fact that light that these lamps emit, can seriously damage the retina of the human eye. Moreover, these injuries can be so severe that no medication and operating procedures will not be able to help.

The benefit of buying LED lamps really exists. Despite the significantly higher cost compared to conventional incandescent lamps, they are much more energy efficient. The tabloid Daily Mail writes that in most cases, LED-lamp for 85% more efficient electricity consumption, and their life span is about 10 years, which is much higher than that of conventional lamps. Due to these factors, you can really save on energy costs.

However, Dr. Celia Sanchez-Ramos, an expert from the Madrid Complutense University, said that in addition to economic benefits, these lamps can cause significant harm to our health. Scientists explain that the light emitted by the LED lamps, consisting of short waves of blue and purple colors of the visible spectrum of very high power. And continuous, uninterrupted view of the light can seriously damage the retina of our eyes, that would deprive us of .

Dr. Sanchez-Ramos and her colleagues see a serious threat that the LED-lamps, which are used not only to illuminate the premises, but also in a variety of gadgets, TVs, computer monitors and screens are just an integral part of not only our lives, but now lives our children.

“The problem is compounded by the fact that even the kids start from the very young age to use electronic devices that emit this light, for example, performing the same school homework. The fact that our eyes are arranged in such a way that they are not intended for us to look directly into the light, they are designed to ensure that we could see by the light. ”
