Exposure to White Light at Night Could be Harmful for Cardiac Patients

Researchers at West Virginia University found that exposure to white light at night could impact the recovery of cardiac patients and dimming the light can reduce the damages. With the results published in Experimental Neurology, the research team, led by Randy Nelson, who chairs the Department of Neuroscience in the WVU School of Medicine, linked white light at night to inflammation, brain-cell death and higher mortality risk in cardiac patients. The researchers re-created cardiac arrest in animal models […]
