DOE Responds to AMA LED Streetlight Warning

As explained in the DOE Fact Sheet True Colors, there’s nothing inherently different about the blue light emitted by LEDs; that is, at the same power and wavelength, electromagnetic energy is the same, regardless of source type. And as the potential for undesirable effects from exposure to light at night emerges from evolving research, the implications apply to all light sources – including, but by no means limited to, LEDs. Further, these research results are often also relevant to light we receive from televisions, phones, computer displays, and other such devices. While there’s nothing inherently dangerous about LED lighting, it should be used with the same prudence with which we use any other technology. http://www1.eere.energy.gov/buildings/ssl/pdfs/true-colors.pdf
