While it is essential to propose treatments for any disease, it is also essential to check its effects on human health before offering it to the market. However, when the concern is about managing toxic elements and its effects, it is the opposite – Sufficient information can be gathered by checking the toxic effect on lab animals to regulate toxicity levels.
It can be very dangerous to suggest that we should wait for the damages to epidemiologically appear in humans to regulate an element that is extremely harmful to health. In simpler terms and as an example, if we observe that our pet is drinking some foul water and if that water is causing serious damages to its health, we would never offer that water to our kid. The reason is because we would clearly see that there are more than enough signs to conclude what is happening to the pet is also very likely to happen to our kid. In similar terms, if we know the fact that screens are damaging the retina cells of lab animals, than there are more than enough signs to regulate this risk in humans.
The argument of “wait until we find epidemiologic effects to regulate this risk”, may seem logical but the consequences of this “wait” could be erroneous and very harmful. It is much more important to realize that waiting to have epidemiological data would put us in a clear contradiction with ourselves. As we continue to be exposed to screens on a daily basis and if there is no possible way of prevention, by the time damages occur, all of those affected would have lost their vision.
As an additional information, the effect of toxic screens on the retina has already been proven in humans and can be seen in the cases of transient blindness:
This clearly demonstrates that the light from screens, indeed, does affect the retinal cells, to the point of temporarily disabling them as they become useless.
And alarmingly, the number of cases of macular degeneration is growing, estimated at a whopping 12% affected between 35 and 74 years old, starting earlier in age and confirming that there are much more occurrences than expected.
Being well informed makes the difference.
