Here is the paradox. Buettner is not a demographer. He's a writer/documentary producer who was funded by National Geographic to write a book about cultural influences on longevity. Then, in order to sell as many books as possible, he cherry... (more)

I bought the LowBlueLights fitover glasses in the smaller size, and they fit very comfortably (they don't feel small at all) but they have a HUGE gap on the top which lets in a lot of light. I have attached a picture below: As far as I can see,... (more)

yep! while doing accupuncture they used red ultraviolet heat lights concentrated on my intestional area, super soothing and helped greatly to reduce the immflamation. It was the part I looked forward to the most! I've been to spas where they... (more)

Melatonin can be very helpful for many people, but not everyone. One reason is a little known fact is that much of the melatonin we produce, like serotonin, is in the gut. According to one study it produces 400 times more than the pineal gland... (more)

I love candles--the soothing glow, the fascination of fire, the way they flatter people's faces, the lack of sleep-interfering blue-light. However, I have a cat and would really rather not having burning flames lying around just waiting to get... (more)

What are some good thoughts on how to reproduce the effect of candles using electric lights? Ideally the effect would have the same wavelength of light, similar intensity, etc. To reproduce candle light electrically, you need an incandescent... (more)

After noticing a difference since installing the f.lux application, I'd like to buy a pair of amber goggles to block out blue light in the evenings. I wear existing glasses so they have to fit over these. Can't find anything appropriate on... (more)

I have tried cheap blueblocking sunglasses from ebay and they only block about half the blue light. The Uvex or any from the US cost a fortune to import to the UK. If you are in the UK or Europe this company is probably the cheapest that sells... (more)

I've become a huge fan of f.lux for my laptop, but f.lux for iPhone requires a jailbroken device. has anyone heard of a screen film that is halogen tinted? I'd love to reduce the harsh blue light of my screen.
