Deleterious Effects of Blue Light

 
 

Amy Myers MD provides a comprehensive discourse on dietary fats, to dispel the long held myth that all dietary fats are hazardous for an individual’s health: “Fats provide your body with a major source of energy, help you absorb certain vitamins and minerals, and build healthy cell membranes — the vital exterior of each of your cells. Fat also builds the sheath that surrounds your nerves. In fact, this sheath actually protects your heart and brain health. Fats are essential for blood clotting, muscle movement, and modulating your inflammatory response.”

Deleterious Effects of Blue Light

Jillian Levy, CHHC explains the various deleterious effects of blue light on an individual’s health and offers strategies on how to minimise blue light exposure:“A very high percentage of visible blue light passes through the corneas and lenses of the eyes and reaches the retinas (the inner lining of the back of the eye). This may lead to damage to the retinas and changes in vision, including a higher risk for macular degeneration”.

Psychological Mechanisms Behind Crying

Australian researchers investigated the psychological mechanisms behind the act of crying and its association with mental health. Their main finding was surprising, writes Carol Rääbus:“Professor Hudson says research shows women are more likely to cry then men, with women crying an average of two to five times a month, and men averaging one cry every two months, which may be explained due to different social expectations around how men and women will act.”

Community Hygiene Can Minimize The Spread of Infections

James Kingsland elaborates on a recently published scientific paper, advocating for increased hygiene practices to decrease antibiotic resistance: “In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and evidence presented in this paper, it is more urgent than ever for policymakers to recognize the role of community hygiene to minimize the spread of infections, which, in turn, will help in reducing the consumption of antibiotics and help the fight against [antimicrobial resistance],” says lead author Prof. Jean-Yves Maillard from the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Cardiff University in the United Kingdom.”
