American Council of Health Replies to AMA’s LED Report

In June 2016, the American Medical Association (AMA) warned against using high-intensity LED streetlights due to its negative impact on sleep and overall health safety. However, the ACH believes that these concerns are puzzling and rather overblown. The AMA report said that blue-rich LED lights cause discomfort and disability and, also reduces visual acuity and safety, leasing to concerns and creating a road hazard. In response to this, ACH says that such claims can only be true if all vehicles on the road were a convertible, and the driver was directly exposed to these lights. However, automobile windshields help to filter out glare, particularly at night. Hence, ACH believes that this concern is somewhat unclear.
