Wearing Special Glasses Promotes Melatonin Flow for Great Sleep
Most people don’t realize exposing the eyes to ordinary light in the hours before bedtime prevents the body from making melatonin the sleep hormone. In 2001 it was discovered there are special sensors in the eye that don’t affect vision but do control the internal clock and melatonin. They respond most strongly to blue light. Lightbulbs that don’t make blue light and eyeglasses that block it were developed at John Carroll University in 2005 and are available at www.lowbluelights.com.
Putting on the glasses a few hours before bedtime allows melatonin to
start flowing so there is plenty by bedtime. This makes it easy to
fall asleep and sleep more deeply. Glasses are sold with a money back
guarantee. If they don’t help you sleep better we will refund your
money. We have sold thousands of glasses and only a tiny fraction
find they so not help them sleep better.
If people are kept in darkness, melatonin can flow for an average of
11.5 hours. Most Americans are in darkness for only 7 or 8 hours a
night. Melatonin flow is limited by the exposure to ordinary light.
Blind women (continuous darkness) have only about half the incidence
of breast cancer as women with normal vision. Women in countries
without electricity have only about one fifth the rate of breast
Prostate cancer is also greatly reduced in primitive
societies. Maximizing melatonin also reduces the risk of metabolic
syndrome and diabetes. It makes good sense to maximize melatonin
through the use of lightbulbs that don’t make blue light or by
wearing glasses that block blue light. Filters for TV and computer
screens are also available along with filters for iPad screens and for
Dr. Hansler is a physicist. He spent 42 years at GE Lighting
developing brighter and better light bulbs only to discover after
retiring and moving to John Carroll University that light bulbs are
making people sick. He and Dr. Edward Carome and Vilnis Kubulins
developed products that allow people to avoid blue light.
