You’ve no doubt heard the news that blue light exposure (especially at night) is now up there with cigarette smoking, sitting for long periods of time, and constant airline travel when it comes to increasing your risk of chronic disease. Scientists worldwide are now warning of the dangers of night-time exposure to artificial, blue light.
An overwhelming body of new research has found that the harsh blue light emitted by digital devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and TVs wreaks havoc on your sleep and overall health, and that late night activities such as gaming sessions, checking social media and taking selfies are increasingly linked to issues like diabetes and obesity. Heck, light pollution is now even classified as a carcinogen!
That’s because the harsh blue light from high energy devices suppresses your body’s normal secretion of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that promotes healthy sleep. Blue light basically fools your brain into thinking it’s still daytime, and the ensuing disruption of your normal sleep cycles is linked to elevated risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other metabolic disorders, as well as to psychological stress and depression.
This blue light exposure is even more damaging for children as explained by Dr. Dave Lee, from the Children’s Eye Center, to Fox News: “As we get older, the lens in our eye naturally gets a little bit more yellow. That acts as a natural filter for that blue light. But children have little or no yellowing to their lens so they don’t have that natural protection.”
So what’s the solution?
Many health-conscious, so-called “biohackers” have taken to wearing orange-tinted blue light blocking glasses, which filters out the specific blue wavelengths of light shown to cause insomnia. This hack is now spreading to the general population, with the result that it’s now become quite acceptable to venture out at night, watch a movie, go to a party, or simply work on a computer or read an e-reader at home while wearing blue-light blocking glasses.
And these things actually work. A Swiss study, published in The Journal of Adolescent Health, showed that when the teenage boys donned orange-tinted glasses, also known as blue blockers in the evening for a week, they felt “significantly more sleepy” than when they wore clear glasses. Separate, independent studies at the University of Toledo in Ohio, University of Lavel in Quebec City, and the Corvalles Psychiatric Clinic in Oregon among others have backed up these findings.
Research conducted at the Corvallis Psychiatric Clinic in Oregon suggests that the simple amber, blue-light blocking glasses can be an effective and inexpensive treatment for insomnia and sleep deprivation, and also be an effective treatment of mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder.
Problem is, most blue-light blocking glasses make you look like a computer nerd, a creepy stalker or an unfashionable freak.
Designed by Ben Greenfield’s good friend James Swanwick, Swannies not only block as much or more blue-light than any of the leading computer glare or blue-light blocking glasses on the market, but they actually look good, not embarrassing – they’re cool, sharp and stylish.
Other ugly blue-blocking glasses make you look ridiculous when you wear them out at night and the last thing you want is to look like a weird creeper. The Swannies’ beautiful frame means you can confidently wear them to parties, social events and on romantic dates. People will often say to you, “Wow! They look cool! Tell me about those.”
Because you know you look cool wearing your Swannies, you’ll naturally want to wear them more. This will help reduce or eliminate eyestrain and stress, which will dramatically improve your sleep, which will get you more energy, burn fat and make you feel happier. Basically, a great night’s sleep makes you better looking.
You’ll sleep better on any night after you’ve worn your Swannies. You’ll fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and consistently sleep better. As you learned earlier, you also block the chronic disease and fat-building effects that blue light has on your body.
Not only that, but you can wear these during the day too! If you struggle with headaches, eyestrain and brain-fatigue from staring at a computer or cell phone late at night or during the day, Swannies can fix this. Feeling stressed, anxious and overwhelmed can be linked to glare and blue light too. Wearing Swannies can block this effect and improve your mental function, concentration, memory and creativity. You will feel calm, relaxed and focused when you’re wearing these glasses. It’s easy to stare at electronic screens when you wear your Swannies.
It’s important that your kids wear Swannies too! Children begin carrying digital devices from the moment they can carry them. Studies show 72 percent of kids aged eight and younger have used tablets or smartphones. More than 33 percent of these kids were under the age of two. By the age of 17, the average child will have spent six years looking at digital devices!
Luckily, you can protect your precious children’s eyes and help prevent chronic disease without taking such drastic measures as banning electronic devices. The kids Swannies are just as stylish and come in a variety of colors. Now your whole family can rock Swannies!
Block blue light.
