According to The Daily Mail, scientists recommend taking all electronic gadgets out of your bedroom in order to reduce your chances from serious diseases like cancer.
In addition, doing away with all sources of artificial light during sleep can considerably decrease the damaging effects it has upon our biorhythm. Scientists link these to serious diseases including cancer, diabetes, depression, and obesity.
In the words of Richard Stevens, a breast cancer researcher, people must start appreciating the dark because it helps the brain to prepare for sleep, something that the light has a counter-effect on.
Stevens further explains that being in the dark at night is as important to health as dreams are. But, while the significance of dreams is widely accepted, the importance of the dark is still undervalued.
