Healthversed’s Guide to Blue Light

These days, being content with your health and wellness isn’t enough. Our culture is one that continually strives to protect ourselves from harmful elements by researching the newest developments in both medicine and technology, and keeping on top of new findings in those important fields.

One recent focus in both of those fields is blue light. Blue light is simply a kind of light that is produced by many electronic devices. The more we learn about blue light, the more we are made aware of how it affects our body, and what we can do to stop these negative effects.

Healthversed has put together this handy guide to introduce you to exactly what blue light is and how you can stop it from taking a toll on your health.

What is light?

To understand what blue light is, you first need to have a general picture of what light is. It’s a hard thing to understand, because you see it every day, but the last time you were taught about it was probably back in grade school. Don’t be ashamed if your knowledge is lacking. We’re here to simplify it and make it easy to understand.

Light, on a basic level, is the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to the naked eye. Most of our light comes from the sun, which produces a wide variety of frequencies of light ranging from infrared (which has longer waves and produces less energy) to ultraviolet (which has much shorter waves and produces more energy).
