    "By 2020 it is estimated that 90% of our light sources will contain LED light"
    Every silver lining has a cloud. LED lights may be better for the environment but they are detrimental to our health. Do we want to save the environment or do we want to save our eyes?!

    There is an simple and obvious solution - reduce the number of screens you look at. Chuck away the mobile phone. You don't need one. I chucked mine away 15 years ago and I've never missed it. Sure people are annoyed when they can't reach me instantly, but the phone is for my convenience not theirs.

    Leave the mobile device at home when you go on holiday. Again you don't need it and as an added bonus, you're much quicker through airport check it.

    Turn the TV off. The programs are rubbish and there are much more exciting things to do rather than stare at the screen in the corner.
