Does HEV light cause premature aging?
We already know that computers and other electronic devices are wreaking havoc on our sleep patterns, making us dumb, ruining our eyesight, and shortening our concentration spans... but now it looks like they might be ruining our complexion, too!
If certain reports are to be trusted, 'high energy light', or HEV for short, which is emitted by computer screens, smartphones and TVs, are just as damaging as the sun's UV rays.
The light can cause darkening of skin pigmentation and other signs of premature aging.
Considering how much face time we give our devices, this is bad news.
