New study across a dozen cities found shocking imcrease in prostate & breast cancers linked with new-generation LED lightimg being rolled out.

Scientists are strongly warning officials to limit rollout. Yet MILLIONS of new LED streetlights already line each of many cities and towns globally.

They can adjust the frequencies of the LED chips to make less harmful effects, but it would make the lights a little dimmer. I would think that their effect on the eyes would be more of an issue that would pop up that quickly.

Do they even test things anymore before production...

How about my O-LED TV, cancer to ?

I always hated these things.

I like the yellow-orange glow of the old street lights.

Guess there are reasons other than nostalgia to do so now.

Yea scientists seem to. emphasize its the wavelength chosen for all these millions of lights im each city just so happens to be interfering with hormones.. via eyes amd dermal too?

Your headline is misleading?

The nature of the study means researchers cannot prove a causal link, but they believe the “blue light” emitted by the LEDs may be disrupting the body’s circadian rhythm, which in turn affects hormone levels.


So no proof. Only speculation.
Nothing burger.
Alarmist BS.

Except they didn't. They found an increased risk for breast and prostate cancers, but they couldn't link the potential increase to the LED lights. They found a "strong link" between the two, but couldn't prove a causal link.


From your source:

Britain’s new generation of street lights risk dramatically increasing rates of breast and prostate cancer, according to a new study.

Scientists have warned officials to consider limiting the roll-out of LED (light-emitting diode) lights after an investigation indicated a “strong link” between the technology and the disease.

Hundreds of thousands of street lights have so far been switched to LED, which are cheaper to run and result in lower emissions, while approximately 30 per cent of the the lights on motorways and A roads in England have also been upgraded.


The study also implicated night time use of cell phones and tablets as causing an increase as well.

Well, Thank God it is not from putting a cell phone in your pocket near your prostate! Or in your purse hanging next to your brrasts!

Correlation doesn't always prove causation. I'm going to go with too much beef in the diet for prostate cancer. And too much milk fat for breast cancer.

Article title:

New LED streetlights may double cancer risk, new research warns

To 'prove' cause they'd have to raise kids in a lab under these lights to adulthood... Or maybe have a court ruling saying so?

Not everyone gets prostate breasts.



They are far less common than eyebrow toes.

They'd have to have the lights be the only possible cause of the increase, if they actually see one. The lights can be the most likely cause, but without an obvious link to them you can't say they're definitely the cause.

1) Any radiation (and all energy is considered "radiation") can lead to cancer . Even the wee little standard 30w bulb in a desk light . (Specialists will hesitate to take a photo of a skin cancer for that reason)

2) They link blue light as a cause for a decrease in melatonin production , yet fail to explain the relevance to the subject matter.

And , the actual words were "may..."

Got duped by that "glorified" headline , huh ?

Why would street LED lights raise the risks of cancer more than regular street lights? How are the radiation they are emitting any stronger? You understand light is a type of radiation?

Using the articles logic. When a country’s health department guesses wrong on what stain of flu virus will be most prevalent, and they directed the “wrong” flu vaccine to be made in bulk. Did that country’s heath officials double our triple the risk of dying from the flu?

Funny how they are quick to cast the stone at others. By gloss over their own problems.

Is it from blue light? Or the stress caused by social media?

The pulsation of the blue light triggers random nerve firings in the skin which changes brain wave activity to coincide with the frequency.


it's like patented or whatever

Street lights with own IP adress


Have they allready installed the new smart street led lights ?


Philips light poles 5G


So if there are now street lights that have both, led and 5G it's double dangerous......which is of cource by design.

Solution: Move next to the beach somewhere in Florida where turtle friendly lighting with an ultra-low nanometer spectrum is required. Your boobs will now be fine.
