Scientists Agree: Sleep Less, Get Fat
Date:11/26/2013

University Heights,OH (PRWEB) November 26, 2013

Photonic Developments LLC is announcing an attack on obesity through its website http://www.lowbluelights.com. There is strong evidence that it is the lack of the sleep hormone, melatonin that results in weight gain and obesity in those who sleep less than six hours a night. Rats that are fed a high fat diet will become obese. However, if melatonin is added to their drinking water, they do not become obese (1). Wearing amber glasses allows your body to maximize production of natural melatonin. Your body can make melatonin for 11 or 12 hours a night, but only if in darkness or wearing blue blocking glasses.

Shift workers have a much higher risk of becoming obese than those who do not work night shift. Again, the lack of sufficient melatonin is the likely mechanism. By wearing amber glasses that block the blue light known to suppress the production of melatonin, shift workers were demonstrated to produce melatonin even when working under bright lights, just as they had when kept in darkness on a previous night (2).

Recent studies (1) show that melatonin can convert ordinary white fat into brown fat and to stimulate the conversion of brown fat into heat. This gets rid of the extra calories that were stored in the body as white fat. You can literally burn the weight away.

http://www.lowbluelights.com was established in 2005 to sell products that allow the body to maximize melatonin by blocking the blue rays in ordinary white light that are known to suppress melatonin. These products were developed at John Carroll University by a team of physicists who are experts in light. Light bulbs that don’t make blue light are available as well as the amber glasses. Recently filters for flat screen TV (as large as 59”) have become available as well as custom cut filters for tablets and iPhones and other mobile devices.

Dr. Hansler has written three books “Great Sleep! Reduced Cancer!”, “Heroes of Cancer Prevention Research”, “Pregnant? New Baby? Need Sleep!” that are available on the website or, for only 99 cents apiece, on the Kindle store. For questions, call him at 216 397 1657 or email at rhansler(at)jcu(dot)edu.
