The health benefit of the vintage Edison light that will surprise you

LED lights are becoming very popular and they are replacing the old luminescent lights for many reasons, as we mentioned in our detailed post on the topic. 

Among the advantages of using the led lights, the most important are:

  •  Led bulbs  are an energy saver

In fact, they use up to 90% less energy than traditional incandescent lights. 

  •    They have a longer life span compared to the old luminescent light

Depending on the quality of the bulb, they can last up to 25.000 hours and they don’t burn out immediately, but gradually fading. 

  • They are less expensive in the long run

Although the bulb itself has higher costs, they last much longer allowing to save money and energy.

THE DOWNSIDES OF LED LIGHTS

However, this amazing light that we all love is not perfect. 

According to researchers from the Harvard Medical School, the blue light emitted by the LED Bulbs, although environmentally friendly, is totally unhealthy for our body when used at night. 

How? 

The cool temperatures of the LED lights, just like the lights of computers and phones, can affect our sleep and even cause diseases if used at night.  

According to the Harvard studies mentioned above, exposure to the blue light produced by LED bulbs can suppress the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that influences the circadian rhythms, with negative effects on our health.

The same studies are also testing a possible connection to diabetes, obesity and even depression.  

THE SOLUTION

Here is where the Vintage Edison Light comes in. In fact, with its warm light, the vintage Edison Light becomes a good ally of our sleep and it reduces the risk of other LED light related diseases.
