light at night unhealthy

Sent a link to Peter, our Light Pollution Abatement chair.

It was to an article I spotted on Sky and Telescope's site. It, in turn, referred to a recent report from the American Medical Association. Researchers are raising several possible health concerns related to nighttime light exposure, among them a higher risk of cancer.

With the AMA, this will give more traction to light pollution.

Turn off your lights. All of them.

One of the things we would do differently if we could do it again....not use night lights with our kids. We should have let them get use to the dark.
