A study by the national Institute of health and medical research (Inserm) raises the debate around the LED.
The LEDs gradually replace incandescent light bulbs for several years. While public authorities encourage consumers to use, a recent study has revealed disturbing results about the effects of these low-energy bulbs.
A Potential Danger to the Eyes
A study by Inserm beginning January 2017 reveals, as many ophthalmologists, LED to represent a danger to eyes. To achieve such results, the french researchers have conducted an experiment on rats that they are exposed to many types of bulbs. Only the exposure LED led to reactions. ” What is happening in two hours, is that rats have swollen, eyes and even the cheeks ,” said Alicia Torriglia, researcher at INSERM.
For the moment, these conclusions concern only the rats. The first scientific data on humans may not be known before twenty years. The national agency of health security and environment (Anses) recommended in 2005 of the comprehensive studies as soon as possible(1). ” Children are particularly sensitive to this risk, insofar as their lens is still developing and can ensure its efficient role of the light filter”, warned still in 2010, in a report.
An Uncertain Impact On the Environment
Many devices of incentives have been introduced by the European Union since 2005, to encourage consumers to opt for LED light bulbs. Brussels plans even to reduce consumption of energy related to the lighting by 2020 by 20%. The environmental impact of these low-energy bulbs, however, remains to be done.
The use of an LED would lower the energy consumption of 70% according to the European Union. However, no research for the impact of the manufacture of these LED on the planet. Until further studies are carried out to reveal the real dangers of this type of bulb, specialists advise to opt for less powerful LEDs.
