From mobile phones to laptops and tabs, spending too much time on the screens of different devices is increasing the cases of obesity and psychological problems. The blue light from these devices can affect our basic biological functions.

These findings come from a study published in the medical journal Frontiers in Aging. Although this study has been done on flies, it has surprising results that a similar effect can be seen in humans. According to the study, excessive exposure to blue light emitted from the screens of everyday devices such as TVs, laptops, and phones can affect the skin and neurons. It can also have harmful effects on cells.

Avoiding exposure to excessive blue light can be a good anti-aging strategy. The researchers showed that flies exposed to this blue light live longer than those in the dark.

blue light damage
Dr. Jadwiga Gibultowicz, Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology at Oregon State University, explained that this is perhaps the first time it has been observed that specific metabolites are necessary for cells to function properly, but they are affected by exposure to blue light.

this is how the conclusion
Dr. Gibultowicz explained that when we compared the levels of metabolites in flies exposed to blue light for two weeks with flies kept in complete darkness, it was found that this exposure caused a significant difference in the levels of metabolites in the flies’ cells. born. Levels of the metabolite succinate were increased, but glutamate levels were low. Molecules responsible for communication between neurons, such as glutamate, are most vulnerable to blue light, which causes cells to function at a sub-level and become life-threatening at an early age.

Actually, we are exposed to blue light from LED display screens such as phones, desktops, and TVs. Now since the signaling chemicals in the cells of flies and humans are the same. Hence there is a potential for negative effects of blue light on humans.
