AMA Acknowledges Health Implications of Light at Night

Department of Community Medicine and Health Care professor Richard Stevens joins WNPR’s Ray Hardman on “Morning Edition” to discuss the American Medical Association’s acknowledgement of the adverse health effects associated with exposure to artificial light at night. The AMA’s action is based on recommendations in a report Stevens helped write and is likely to lead to further study of exposure to light at night, circadian rhythm disruption, and melatonin suppression, with implications for conditions including breast cancer, diabetes and obesity.
