More About That Blue Light at Night

Blue light at night from electronic devices disturbs melatonin production in your body, thereby interrupting quality sleep. This news is nothing new, but did you know other parts of your body are adversely affected by this circadian rhythm imbalance? Scientists have observed that circadian rhythm disruption also affects the heart and possibly the kidneys, along with their natural functions. The advice is to turn off electronic devices with lighted screens an hour before bedtime to improve sleep—and now also for better heart health. Source: National Library of Medicine.
