Artificial blue light and its dehydrating effects on cells

Maybe you believe that New Year's diet and gym workouts are not bringing the desired results. One of the possible culprits may be exposure to artificial blue light, which has considerable negative effects on our organism.
The effect of artificial blue light
Artificial blue light has been a part of our lives since 1893. However, its effect on our health is not negligible. Blue light naturally varies in the solar spectrum depending on latitude. However, unlike sunlight, artificial lighting lacks a natural antidote in the form of infrared light (IR-A), which makes up 42% of the total spectrum.
Chronic exposure to artificial blue light is comparable to excessive carbohydrate intake, as both situations involve excess photoelectric energy. These high energies dehydrate the mitochondria in a similar way to dehydrating a steak in the microwave. This is because blue light slows the flow of electrons in the mitochondrial electron transport chain, which reduces the turnover of ATP synthase.
Implications for mitochondrial function
Normally, mitochondria produce CO2 and water as byproducts of glucose metabolism and beta-oxidation of fats - signs of healthy functioning. However, if the mitochondria are inefficient for any reason, they become dehydrated. This is then manifested by a number of symptoms such as constipation, dry skin, dry eyes, dry vagina, lack of saliva, hangovers, headaches and increased susceptibility to concussions.
Mitochondria in animal cells reverse the photosynthesis process of chloroplasts in plants. This affects their functions in the long term, as they have evolved in anticipation of the seasonal variability of energies. People who exercise under modern artificial blue lighting, which saves electricity by eliminating the red and violet spectrum, often suffer from headaches.
How artificial light affects the brain
Artificial light rapidly disrupts the biological clocks that control chemical processes in the body, including the cell cycle that controls growth. This is manifested by changes in the secretion of hormones in the brain. Morning blue sunlight stimulates the flow of hormones, while a lack of blue light at dusk dramatically alters the secretion of prolactin and dopamine by the pituitary gland. Chronic exposure to artificial blue light destroys these systems and leads to a significant drop in hormones. This is why modern lighting causes myopia, retinal disease and infertility in young people.
