Which Child Will Have The Higher Test Score?
Over 50% of children and adults with reading, learning, or attention problems have Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome – a disorder which affects messages from the eye to the brain.
Fluorescent lighting contains many disruptive wave-lengths of light, which adversely affect the transfer of messages from the eye to the brain. Filtering out these specific wave lengths of light has been reported to help return vision to its natural unaltered state. Fluorescent lighting not only contains this disruptive factor, but also other unhealthy elements.
Unhealthy elements of fluorescent lighting:
• Color Spikes: Fluorescent lights emit waves of pronounced color spikes that can lead to the inability of the brain
to process colors properly or make eyes very sensitive to artificial light sources. Fluorescent lighting used in schools often does not contain the full spectrum of colors that occur in natural sunlight or full spectrum LED lighting. This causes distractions between the eye and the brain, which can lead to reading, writing, and behavioral disorders.
• Mercury: Fluorescent lamps contain Mercury, a dangerous chemical which is toxic to humans and the environment. It is particularly harmful to children and unborn babies.
• UV Radiation: A by-product of Mercury is UV-A and UV-B radiation which deteriorates and yellows fixture lenses, fabrics, plastics, and printed surfaces such as signage and artwork.
• Heat: Fluorescent lamps emit infrared heat which increases the temperature in a room, thus causing the cooling system in a facility to work harder. The Energy Focus LED lamp produces a better quality and more light using 50% less power with no heat factor, thereby saving the building 50%or more on energy and cooling costs.
