Does it concern you the amount of UV light in your phones and laptops

Causing harmful ailments and diseases to your body from the radiation? Seriously! I could be in trouble lol
Just wondering haha carry on 🤔

There are no phones I'm aware of that produve UV light... same with laptops
Lilymoon · F
@Ontheroad Yeah, they're calling it a blue light....Tvs as well 🤷‍♀️

Laptops and phones do not emit uv light.

@Lilymoon Yes, it seems as if cancer rates have increased, over the past 30 years. However, this is linked to altered microbiome, sleep deprivation, increase in alcohol consumption, diet, sedentary life style, pollution, etc.

@RosaMarie thank you I hope you're right. I know if I'm holding my phone for long periods of time my hand feels odd....and not "muscley" odd just kinda vibration odd hard to explain.

@Lilymoon This will be a boring test, but turn your phone off. Hold it the same way for the same time. Move your hand in the same way you do when using it. I'll bet you feel exactly the same way.
The 5G data band is the biggest worry I hear. The antenna in the phone is getting a lot of energy, and best kept as far away from you as possible.

To support 5G networks, you need more cell towers per city block, pumping out a greater amount of electromagnetic radiation.

@SethGreene531 I don't think too much of it is any good and most of this phenomenon is relatively new so there hasn't been much study on it.

I have never heard this. I was having a lot of joint pain daily for a couple years but I started taking Vitamin D and Boron and it went away about a month later.
Lilymoon · F
@cherokeepatti yeah apparently according to some people,... they try to keep it quiet but it's potentially harmful 🤷‍♀️
If screens emitted UV light, I wouldn't be so pale. 😅 Blue light could be an issue though, even with the blue light filter of my phone enabled.

The blue light can affect your sleep. It’s the electromagnetic radiation that has been linked to more serious health issues.
Lilymoon · F
@sciguy18 that's what I meant the radiation

It seems like many electronics emit UV or radio frequency radiation. I'm not really bothered though, I guess I like to live dangerously.
samueltyler2 · 80-89, M
The original cathode ray tubes and see me early leds might have been a little dangerous. To he modern ones, should not be a problem.
HatterM · 46-50, M
I think CRT devices before LCDs took offer were far worse. I use blue light filters all the time and only have Wifi on when needed.
Virgo79 · 61-69, M
If we live long enough we'll get it regardless 😕
Lilymoon · F
@Virgo79 there hasn't been enough study on it I guess
Virgo79 · 61-69, M
@Lilymoon its something no one is gonna hide from if they live long.
They say literally everything causes it.
Lilymoon · F
@Virgo79 yep
Better than the electron guns firing at your eyeballs in the old CRTs.

Everywhere, things are slowly killing us. What can we do? Live in a cave like a hermit?

It's possible but you can think too much on this on
Lilymoon · F
@Susanna77 I know I'm a think nerd lol

🤔.........Nope.........Everything in life is bad for your body...........

Its blue light , not uv light . (The waves are slightly longer than uv).

Blue light is within the normal spectum of what we see during daytime - Its why the sky is blue as its wavelength bounces of certain paticles in the atmosphere.

The only danger it poses is screwing up our circadian rhythms and natural body 'wind down' processes that happen as natural daylight fades in the evening.

It is similar to 'cool white' light.

In fact [b]any [/b]overhead or bright light, (or light from tv/screens) opposes the natural wind down process in the body at night.

Its best to use blue light screens or apps, and use low light, warm hued lamps after the sun goes down .

Many people are suffering sleep issues due to too much blue light after sunset.

It doesn't cause disease.
We have been exposed to blue light since the dawn of time .

Its just that nature limits it. Today's technology is causing us to be exposed to it at unatural hours and screwing up our sleep.

@OogieBoogie I suppose I meant the radiation waves coming from it.... not sure if it poses a danger.
@Lilymoon blue light is part of the spectrum which is white light - which is daylight.

You have been exposed to blue light every day of your life.🤷‍♀️

I didn`t need my testicles anyway. 😏
