Yep the same way they now eat processed food, it does not work out well now, yet they still eat it, go figure.Hey, up to 87% of Americans used to smoke cigarettes. That didn't work out so well.
I don't see where incan bulbs are harmful after 100+ years of mankind using them. But so far LED bulbs seem to have some issues like Dr Jones is saying. We'll see.
Like I said previously, the blue light doesn't seem to bother me. Nor does PWM. I still have some bulbs in my house. Some curly fries and flourescents too. Light is light to me. Now as bulbs, curly fries and flourescents quit I replace them with LED's mostly. They're cheap and last a long time.
Dangers of smoking was know by doctors since very beginning, it was actually a doctor who invented a hookah. to lessen harmful effect, cuz he could not convince people that smoking is bad. Hitler waged war on smoking and had extensive antismoking campaign among nazi officers and generals.
So it is not a lack of knowledge, but force of habit, and anchoring effect. as well as corporate greed. and marketing
Dr jones just voiced his opinion, there is no study that finds led lighting (by itself) is in any way harmful. high frequency flicker, otoh, is.
