On AMA Policy

AMA Policy
               

Will Health Insurance cost go up or go down with LED lighting and politics?

  medical In their 2012 report the AMA refers to obesity, cancer and diabetes.
Changes in lighting are advised by that AMA Policy.
Health Insurance will follow, and will revise lighting standards. 
                           OLED lighting makes a healthy difference.

Lighting will eventually have safety rating labels affecting Health Insurance Premiums.  Safe use of lighting requires proper LEDs, or light filtering, either with tinted eyeglasses, or a control method within the lighting device.

Balance energy savings & health savings when lighting is a large segment of our power consumption. Cool-White LEDs were initially used as an energy saver to compete with conventional lighting.  Marketing efforts commonly use political highlights when that can improve market share, and that has occurred with LED Lighting. 

"Climate Change" & "Global Warming" are political labels for unproven conditions, claimed man-made with atmospheric Carbon & Carbon Dioxide.  Generating less power naturally reduces Carbon & CO2 emissions, but that can't affect an unproven, unknown condition.  Cool-White LEDs are hoped to help fix unproven matters, and the Cool-White has excessive levels of 450nm radiation that increases risk of breast cancer, diabetes and obesity. 

Insurance Rates may be questionable and Obamacare rates increase up to 50% for smokers due to proven health demise.  Melatonin lab tests and its linked records with breast cancer and diabetes will raise Health Insurance rates, because rather than cigarette smoking, your home and office spray you night & day with Cool-White LEDs.  Most smoking issues occur after more than a decade, maybe 5,000 packs of smokes.  Circadian rhythm upset from Melatonin suppression occurs in less than weeks, and its horrible outcome occurs in far less than a decade.

Better lighting is available.  The LED type must combine a mixture of proper LEDs, or devote improved phosphor converted types for the lighting tasks.  Better is the OLED (Organic Light Emitting Device) which can produce necessary light without 450nm radiation.  Data sheets must provide SPD figures.  CCT alone is insufficient.

Unhealthy use of solid-state lighting has been underway since 1999.  Let's prioritize lighting type selections for a healthy solution.  Can new political labels help?
 

Senator James Inhofe defined "Climate Change" as the hoax it is.
