    but its fact that smartphone displays make deaf, blind and stupid - and wet wet wet, hopefully their devices were waterproof :D

    So, there's nothing concrete according to them. All those articles are simply speculation.

    Unequivocally without question. Evidence is plain as day and requires no independent (uh hem) technical studies.

    I was thinking about this when I ordered specs from Zenni a few days ago. I went with the BLOCKZ lenses because they were 30% off, whereas normal ones were only 20%, even though I was fairly convinced there was no actual benefit based on what I had read. The extra cost of paying for "just in case" was $5. I guess I was being rationale about an emotional decision.:confused:

    Ultimately there is no scientific proof of anything without a contradicting story that claims otherwise. In this case I assume it is just a story created to shift liability away from the manufacturers of these devices. I'm sure they will reference it when someone tries to sue them.

    "Dangers from blue light exposure worsen with age: ‘Detrimental to human health’

    Constant exposure to blue light from phones and computers is very harmful to people. Researchers from Oregon State University say the damaging effects of daily, lifelong exposure to blue light worsen as a person ages...

    '...While the full effects of blue light exposure across the lifespan are not yet known in humans, accelerated aging observed in short-lived model organism should alert us to the potential of cellular damage by this stressor.'...

    'The novel aspect of this new study is showing that chronic exposure to blue light can impair energy-producing pathways even in cells that are not specialized in sensing light,'...

    Researchers suggest, to combat blue light, people should get eyeglasses with amber lenses..."
