- Does blue light exposure reduce the human lifespan?
- Researchers should determine whether those exposed to blue light are more prone to age-related diseases like diabetes and Alzheimer's?
- We are surrounded by technology emitting blue light in this day and age, like our phones and laptops. A comparison should be made between people exposed to blue light and those that use a blue light filter! Are there any differences in their health?
