Electronic Devices’ Low Energy Radiation Hurts Vision
Data suggest that some of our modern devices contribute to the problem of poor vision. This includes low energy radiation from the TV, laptops, and cell phones, and from the fluorescent lights that we use daily.
The effect of the low energy radiation on the aging population is that some of our nutrients are significantly decreased and need to be supplemented.
The main nutrients that need to be supplemented are lutein and zeaxanthin.
The American National Eye Institute has long advised people to eat a healthy diet rich in green, leafy vegetables, and fish.
In addition, there is a suggestion that you need to take a break from using short vision, for instance reading on your laptop or computer, by looking away at a distant object every 30 mins.
These factors are needed to correct the beginning epidemic of vision problems that we have today.
Unfortunately, use of the supplements to support vision does not have good documentation. But hopefully in the future we will learn more about which ones help most.
In the meantime, take a break from the cellphones, computers, TVs, and fluorescent lights.
