Beware the Blue - LED Lighting!

Blue light has many serious negative effects on living things, including human beings. A small amount of blue light at night can turn off the production of the body's melatonin, possibly leading to a wide variety

of debilitating or even fatal medical issues.  Most LED street and area lights in use today use LED chips that produce blue light almost twice the intensity of the rest of the luminaire's spectrum!

Beware the Blue - LED Lighting!

Cool White LED

Warm White LED

Most LED street and area luminaires being installed now are unacceptable due to the high amount of blue light to be found in their spectrum. Scientific investigation has found that this blue light at night can create a multitude of health issues for all living things, humans included. This situation must change in order to protect our health and the night evironment.
