Scientists now believe blue leds are linked to some forms of cancer...
Just a heads up.
|Blue light at night reduces our bodies' melatonin levels, which can disturb sleep – this is generally accepted. What is far less certain [PDF] is a link between low levels of melatonin, a weakened immune system, and cancer.|
|Basically they're saying if you sleep with blue lights in your room it may lower your melatonin levels. By lowering melatonin levels it may keep you from sleeping, and by keeping you from sleeping it may weaken your immune system, which may cause your body more susceptible to cancer.|
