We need to pay attention to the connection between gadgets and living young.

Blue light from smartphones and laptops may hasten ageing, according to animal studies published in Frontiers in Aging.

The fact that excessive use of electronic devices may harm visual and mental health can't be avoided.

Jadwiga Giebultowicz of Oregon State University suggests that overexposure to blue light emitted by televisions, laptops, and mobile devices may affect the skin, fat, and sensory neurons.

Giebultowicz and colleagues examined metabolite levels in fruit flies exposed to high-energy blue light for two weeks versus those kept in absolute darkness.

Blue light exposure affected the levels of the metabolites succinate and glutamate in fly brain cells.

It has been discovered that succinic acid supports the immune system and promotes the recovery of the nervous system.

Glutamate has a crucial role in the development of learning and memory. The right amounts of glutamate must be present at the right times, places, and concentrations.

The investigation found that blue light exposure reduced levels of chemicals crucial for neuronal communication, including glutamate.

Since both human and fly cells contain signalling molecules, blue light might be harmful to humans as well.
