Angelina Jolie has Women Asking for Ways to Reduce the Risk of Breast Cancer
Date:5/23/2013

University Heights,OH (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

Angeline Jolie’s brave decision to have both breasts removed based on the genetic study showing there was an 87% chance she would develop breast cancer is making women everywhere look at their odds of getting breast cancer.

But women do not need to give up the use of night at night. According to Richard Hansler PhD, Director of the Lighting Innovations Institute at John Carroll University (JCU), the blue wavelengths in ordinary white light have been demonstrated to cause the problem. Light bulbs that don’t make blue light and glasses that eliminate it were developed at JCU in 2005 and are available from Photonic Developments LLC at http://www.lowbluelights.com. Using these products is the equivalent of being in darkness and thus might reduce the probability of having breast cancer.

Thousands of people have bought these products with the guarantee of money back if they don’t help them sleep better. About 90% find their sleep improved. Reducing the ri
