  2. HAVE A RE-READ OF CT-4 AFTER THIS BLOG.
  3. WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS OF THIS?

THE BLOG TAKE AWAY:  AM UV full spectrum sunlight rarely changes in population areas on this planet.  The frequency quality is always 290-400 during every morning where humans live.  When it is not present at high northern latitudes foods from the marine food change capture those AM frequencies in the deep winter to barely make life possible above the 59th latitude. This has huge implications for modern man.  He lives an indoor existence under light bulbs that subtract these frequencies constantly.  His eye cannot sense it so his brain cannot perceive it and it cause his brain and body to degenerate faster than one could imagine in all systems.  Why?  The SCN receives these UV frequencies and this drives the Retinal pigmented epithelium that brings blood flow to this part of the retina.  How this happens is discussed within this blog.

HUMAN EYE AND THE NEUROSURGERY CONNECTION I MADE

The amount of light entering our eye is wholly depend upon the excellent operation of our iris.  The iris controls the pupil.  Under bright light conditions, the pupil is normally quite small.  This how neurosurgeons, like myself,  assess midbrain functioning in patients with the pupillary afferent light reflex in traumatic brain injures.  This only is usually done with flashlights in the hospital or emergency room.  When I was a young resident we used incandescent flashlight bulbs to do this test.  The hospitals back then has incandescent Edison style bulbs in many places and a few fluorescent bulbs back in 1986-93.  Today we use LED bulbs and fluorescents lights to save energy and save money.  Why did I bring that up?  Over the years as I have gotten older as a neurosurgeon,  I have noticed as the flashlights I used changed to check cranial nerve two, so did the lights in the hospital.  The subtle observation I made was that there was also a massive change in how the pupillary light reflex manifest in my own patients.  People today have larger pupils when we check their second cranial nerve in the hospital.  They are surrounded by LED and fluorescent lights and surgeons are now using LED or xenon lights to check the response.

I noted this effect way back in my residency and mentioned it to my older staff physicians.  One of them, Dr. Robert Tiel, was a very diligent surgeon.  He suggested I research it at LSU.  I did.  It lead me to an obscure paper reference about a contact lens manufacturer in Florida.  Ten years ago, when I got ill and read a fable, a new idea emerged from the obscure reference I read. In fact,  I felt that I might have discovered something important to medicine that was right beside my nose all along.  I had never put two and two together in residency, because I was trained to stop thinking like I did as a child,  and I was schooled to begin to start thinking like those who trained me.  Thankfully, Dr. Tiel was a different kind of staff physician.  He loved questions and paradox.  And he always told us to go learn something new.  With his encouragement, I did.  Boy did I ever.  Sometimes we need to be constantly reminded of the basics of life so we remain directed at our life’s purpose. When we live by assumptions, too often we forget its most fundamental concepts. I realized I had to stop living by the life’s assumptions I acquired from medical training, and begin to let nature guide me. When you assume things about the basics of life and forget what they really are made of, errors in judgment often follow.  For the last ten years, I began to to find time every morning at sunrise to reconnect with those fundamentals in my life.

THE PUPILLARY PROBLEM:

Everyday I have gone to work and I exam people and I always observe their pupils in the rooms I see them in.  For ten years not one room had full spectrum light.  They had fluorescent or LED bulbs.  All the rooms has windows.  Regular pane glass windows.  In that decade I found people’s pupils were larger than they were from when I first learned about the pupil.

With keen observations, I found it is far more noticeable in people who wear glasses.  I happen to and I monitored this in myself too.  I always asked people when they got glasses and found that very often disease got diagnosed soon thereafter.  Alterations in the pupillary reflex are also  quite noticeable in those who frequently wear sunglasses, or pink, blue, brown, and/or green lenses, and it is universal in those who have had cataract surgery who have lenses implanted with artificial ones to replace theirs.  Most people with artificial lenses or who have had lassie surgery will tell you bright light, especially at night bother them and gives them haloing and headaches.  Why might this the case?

Most glass and a lot of modern plastics block UV frequencies.  When UV wavelengths 290-415nm are subtracted, absent, or blocked from the human eye chronically for any reason, the pupil remain larger than it otherwise would be.  How did I learn about this?  From the historical use of atropine in the eye.  I am an older neurosurgeon and when I began training atropine was more commonly used then it is today.  We used to post signs on people’s beds in our intensive care unit if any of the doctors on my team came around and checked someone’s eyes for papilledema so that our team would not think the patient “blew a pupil” and take the patient to urgent surgery to decompress that side of their brain.  You might laugh now, but that has happened in the past. A large pupil allows the doctor to examine the inside of the eye in order to diagnose and treat eye, retinal, and brain diseases.   Today we use MRI’s more frequently.  Atropine use has dropped.  Back in my day, every young resident knew about atropine. Pupil dilation tends to last longer in people with lighter colored eyes (irides), and occasionally a child’s eyes may stay dilated for longer than 24 hours. The reason, is that lighter colored eyes are more sensitive to the effects of “lowered levels of UV light” from their locations and this color change of their iris strengthens their ciliary muscles of the iris by smaller amounts of UV light in the AM.  This is why blue eyes is more common in higher latitudes where UV light is present but not as intense.  The blue iris sensitizes the ciliary muscles to work better.  Children also require stronger and longer lasting drops than do adults to accurately measure refractive error.  The reason is there eye muscles are not as strong or developed. Children also have been noted to have higher pupil sizes in my clinic since 2006.  I do not see many but I see a lot of my daughters friends and I have noted how they all have poor pupillary responses to my LED penlight.

What was the experience I learned from Dr. Tiel’s supportive advice about my question in 1995 when I was at LSU?  I read a paper about pterygium and the high rate of visual destruction it caused in bright light.  The article seemed to blame sunlight as a cause but another paper I reviewed with Dr. Tiel, was in opposition of this idea.  It was done on the Cree Indians from Mantibo, Canada.  It turns out they got unreal amounts of ptergyium and they lived outside the tropics were sunlight was not strong at all.  They also had unusual skin hypersensitivities.  They received a wrap around pair of sunglasses (because they lived in tundra where there was highly reflective ice and snow to block light) and wore them as a prescription to avoid ptergyium, yet they all got it, and in many cases it was worse wearing the glasses.  Dr. Tiel, pointed out that glass blocks all UV light.  He mentioned in passing, reading that Richard Feynman refused to wear sunglasses in the desert atomic weapons tests in New Mexico (Los Alamos), and just watched them through the windshield of a pick up truck to avoid any UV exposure to his eyes or skin.  I never forgot that when he mentioned it.

That one comment then lead to a paper on cows by a Jan C. Bonsma.  It was about how fertility in cattle in the tropics.  I learned that hide pigmentation in cattle was tied to fertility.  Cows lacking skin pigmentation got hyperkeratosis and eye diseases.  This led to an interesting paper and experiment done by a contact lens manufacturer in Florida in 1969.  Philip Salvatori was a CEO of Obrig Labortories.  In the early days of contact lens manufacturing there was a lot of concern about the risk of UV light entering the eye because the meme of the day, was that any UV light to the retina was dangerous and harmful.  I thought to myself, I guess that is why the military handed out sunglasses to the viewers of the atomic blasts.  Then I thought about Feymann and what he did, and why he did it.  I realize immediately, this long standing meme exists publicly and in medicine too.  I realized this meme was false physically, yet it is still present today.  Full spectrum sunlight, natural sunlight contain 290-400 nm light.  All life evolved with this light on earth.  How could it be bad?  I then found out almost all manufactured lenses of any kind back from 1930 until today are made so they block all UV frequencies of light.  The reason for this fear is the result of a general lack of understanding in the differences of the relative intensities of the near or long wavelengths UV light and how our atmosphere allows 290 and above in regular sunlight every morning.  The confusion exists because there is far and short wavelength UV that appears in natural sunlight at the surface of Earth.  Day light has shorter wavelength UV in 290-380 range, where twilight has the 381-500 range blue light.  I found out that these frequencies of light interact with different proteins in our eye to do different things.  The atmosphere filters and stops virtually all of the far short wave (UVA), except for trace amounts.  Natural sunlight, however, allows quite a bit of near long wavelength UV light.  This is the light that allows our skin to make sulfated cholesterol and Vitamin D3 in our skin.   We also need it to drive our daytime circadian cycles.  This is the light that gives a current of flow to the SCN.  The RPE that supports the SCN is loaded with DHA to carry the higher energies in this short wavelength of UV light.  I found out that the longer wavelength UV and blue light 400-500 nm light lowered DHA levels and worked with melanopsin in the central retina at sunset.

GAME CHANGER:  THIS WAS THE TRAP DOOR

I realized physics of light exposure controlled our biology at all levels.

Much of what we believe about diet and exercise is based upon many false assumptions because we ignore the effects of light. If nutrition studies are done from season to season why don’t we put animals in environments in labs that mimic those lighting environments to study the effects. Any person who observes mammals knows that mammalian appearanxces changes and reflects biochemistry changes in these animals that are entrained by light only. Many changes are also altered by temperature variations too. So it raises the point how can anyone infer anything about growth and metabolism if your experiments never controlling for variable changes that occur in seasons with respect to light and temperature? What if the light in the lab was not full spectrum sunlight, could that alone make a difference? Most researchers appear to be unaware that mammals normally do this seasonally as their environments change.

The reason this science is tough to get is because no one really understands the leptin-melanocortin pathways with respect to a varying light and temperature gradient.  Neither are controlled for in biology or the nutrition studies so they are missing in all experiments.  We see variations in all studies of plants and animals. Everyone knows you cannot naturally grow roses in Alaska.  It hard to understand something when you do not realize its true quantized function. As the overall picture began to unfold for me and various parts of the puzzle became clear.  I gained a far deeper understanding  and the Quilt document began to develop in my mind.  With physics at the foundation, apparently unrelated phenomena are seen to be different aspects of the same thing.  The back side of a quarter and the front side look different but they are still part of the quarter.  It began to emerge that many laws biology followed, were derived from a very small number of basic fundamental principles in physics. This is how a neolithic thought can subjugate your paleolithic genes.  This is why ancestral health and medicine can give out half truths and not know it.  It is critical perspective to own to gain an optimal life and reversing diseases. Traditional allopathic training did not give me these answers but it prepared me to receive the wisdom found in nature. I realized that biology ultimately came down biochemistry.  But then I realized that all biochemistry is the bridesmaid to physics and its electron.  The outermost electron in an atom controls 100% of its biochemical ability.  That idea then lead to this one:  I then realized that physics of light are how the business of cells gets completed in everyday life.  I realized I needed to know a lot more about how sunlight and man made light interacted photoelectrically in our eye, skin, gut, and respiratory systems.

I found this insight because I knew it had to exist because of the varied physiologic abilities of polar and equatorial people. The pathway in the eye to the leptin receptor for the “eye clock” only revealed itself when I found its metabolic “trap door” in the SCN. The fact that all mammals can activate a “new biochemistry” when their environment changes has huge implications for modern humans.  The remainder of this blog is about those implications.

HOW TO CHECK YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL LIGHT EXPOSURE

You can use a plastic spectrometer to measure the ambient light in your environment or you can use your phone.  I have found there are differences in measurements between both.  Our world is filled with different light sources: fluorescent office lights, sodium street lamps, and bright neon lights. My OR is filled with even more deadly treasures.  Now you can see all of the emission spectra of these light sources with our new iPhone app: SpectraSnapp if you can’t find a plastic spectrometer on the internet.  

The results of both measuring sticks for the frequency of light can be very impressive when you view them side by side.  Below I have put three screenshots of the light from three types of lamps: conventional Edison incandescent, the modern compact fluorescent, and the new energy saving LED lamps. Each spectrum is strikingly different and to the bio-hacker.  These pictures tells a dark twisted tale of how the light is made and what it might do to our health.  Pay attention to what happens in the far left from 500 nm on down. It is the critical part.  

Note that these older Edison bulbs which are now hard (internet) to find had most of the light emission in the red range.  Humans do not see them as red because we do not see the red and infrared range well,  so our brains interpreted them as mostly yellow.  Note that these “Edison like bulbs” did have all blue frequencies to the left in the picture to 0, and  above the UV part of the spectrum, so they we closer to full spectrum sunlight than the the more modern fluorescent and LED bulbs being manufactured today for indoor lighting, TV panels, and technology displays. This explains why neolithic disease were present from 1880’s -1970’s but did not have the explosive growth until other lights showed up.  Kerosene was the dominate lighting fuel prior to electric lights.  This is how John Rockerfeller Sr. made his money via Standard Oil.  Today his family now is heavily involved in health and researching financing.  GE came from another captain of industry named J.P. Morgan.  In the 1930’s he bailed out the US from the 1929 market crash by creating the Federal Reserve.  For that he got the ability to print money on demand without needing any gold to back it.  That ability remains today.  Mr. Morgan also fueled the electric power wars (he backed Edison, who lost, but Morgan won) in the early 20th century between Edison and Tesla and Westinghouse.  J.P. Morgan gained control over General Electric and put Westinghouse out of business.  Tesla went on to electrify the world with AC electricity.  (Not good for us)  And Edison used the DC current (not good but better than AC)  Today, GE make most of the world light bulbs and medical diagnostics. JP Morgan remains a wall street darling that helps control our financial markets.  GE also makes and control most of the LED TV market.

 The spectrum of fluorescent light bulbs.  Note they have intense sharp emission lines from the mercury vapors within the bulbs, with a smooth background from the phosphor in the tube.  These lights also emit X-rays (not shown).  X-rays are not part of the visible spectrum of light that we get from sunlight.  X-rays are part of the ionizing part of the spectrum.  Key point: they are not full spectrum bulbs because they do not have 290-390 nm light.  Sunlight contains these frequencies naturally and your central retinal eye clock uses them for circadian entrainment during the day and for AM hormone function.  These are the bulbs that most schools, stores, business, and hospitals still use.  They are being replaced because of their X-ray emission risks that first came to light in the 1960’s when GE recalled their TV’s which work by cathode ray transmission.  These bulbs use a similar photoelectric mechanism to generate light more cheaply than Edison’s bulbs.

This is the spectrum of the LED light bulbs we are now being forced to use.  I spoke about them in the September 2015 webinar and how they have changed how cities look from space.  They are much brighter and use less power but my concern is the bright blue emission spike from the LED itself.  They are actually increasing light pollution in cities.  The fluorescence of the phosphor coating in the bulb (if used) is seen in the green, yellow, and red spectrums.  Once again, note that the 290-420nm wavelengths of full spectrum sunlight is completely absent. These are the frequency of light that drives the retinal-SCN-hypothalamic pineal tract in humans during daylight.

THE DIRTY DETAILS

Modern artificial light is causing a huge change in the light frequencies our eyes see every morning.  That light is causing a reduction of NAD+ and oxygen levels in our extra ocular eye muscles.  This allows our eye ball to lengthen and our lens curvature to lengthen.  Normally either one of these things can cause myopia.  Myopia is short sightedness.  It means we can’t see at distances.  Most people have to wear glasses when this occurs.  Today, myopia is the best measure of a redox problem in skeletal muscle in my opinion.  I discussed the details of how this occurs in Ubiquitination 23.  Our cornea gets its oxygen supply from the air external to our eye because our cornea has no blood supply to remain transparent to sunlight.  This means if you place contacts over the cornea you are making it pseudohypoxia mechanically.  No contact lens is as permeable to oxygen as the human cornea.  Wearing contacts can lead to a circadian signaling problem because it alters the surfaces of your eye with light.  Right behind our transparent cornea is the pliable crystalline collagen lens controlled by skeletal muscles ciliary muscles. It also fatigues the small ciliary muscles that control the shape of our lens in our anterior eye.  There is another possible link also tied to UV light. Bright full spectrum outdoor light stimulates the release of the retinal transmitter dopamine, which is known to be able to block the axial growth of the eye, which can also lead to eye elongation.   Lack of dopamine causes an elongated eye.  Barreto et al. have shown that in the presence of Fe(NO3)3 two broad bands of dopamine absorbance appear, with maxima at 437 and 740 nm.  437 nm is in the indigo/purple range.  This range is missing in all artificial lights today.   Shorter wavelength light, that is present can also penetrate into deep brain structures and regulate, for example, the seasonal cycle of reproduction in birds. We now know experimentally that melanopsin works in humans at 480 nm absorption in the blue range.  For instance, opsin 5, a non-retinal and non-pineal deep-brain opsin photoreceptor in the hypothalamus of quail, has a peak of excitation at 419 nm.  Tyrosinase is an oxidase (enzyme) that is the rate-limiting enzyme for controlling the production of pigmented proteins like dopamine. Dopamine, in the presence of tyrosinase, covalently modifies and inactivates tyrosine hydroxylase.  This lowers dopamine and can cause myopia.  It also can be associated with risks for other neurodegenerative disorders (PD).  Artificial lights, TV’s, and technology gadgets produced today have a very similar lack of 290-450 nm frequency in the spectrum of light.  What might the results of this be in people who use these things chronically? They have a complete absence of UV light during daylight hours that leads to myopia and a huge increase in neolithic diseases in those people.  Have we seen this already in humans? Yep.

Sixty years ago in 1950 (think about the opening paragraphs of EE4 now), 10–20% of the Chinese population was short-sighted. Today, up to 90% of teenagers and young adults are. In Seoul, a whopping 96.5% of 19-year-old men are short-sighted.  The data is even worse in China where air pollution and technology are driving the epigenetic process further to bigger extremes.  These Asian teenagers use technology far more so than any other group in Asia.  I saw this when I was in Asia in early 2015.  Why else are Asians more affected than Americans?  Air pollution is no controlled in their countries because they are developing economies with different environmental protections.  Air pollutions block the vital UV frequencies in our atmosphere in AM sunlight from their eyes even if they wear no glasses.  If they think wearing sunglasses is cool it is even worse.  Sunglasses alter the spectrum the central retina sees to a greater degree.  When they get diagnosed with myopia what is the knee jerk response of the optometrist or eye doctor?  A prescription lens that blocks UV light completely.  Why?  Because this is what we are taught to do.  Just because we are taught to do something does not mean it is correct.  Do you still think myopia is a genetic disease, or might it too be driven by a poor or absent UV light spectrum in the environment?  When we have a chronic loss of AM UV spectrum of sunlight what should we expect to happen next?  Low fertility is the result with massive drops in sex hormones.  Are you people having fertility problems globally?  Yes.  Do they want to have sex?  Ask the Japanese:  They suffer from “celibacy syndrome”.  They are among the biggest abusers of technology and LED lighting.  When you stop having sex, you stop having offspring.  What comes next?

Sixth Extinction?

The charts above have been the topic of  books  including books the “Birth Dirth”. Many recent epidemiological surveys  have remarked that China with its massive population is becoming old more rapidly than we expected.  Their policy limiting offspring will only hasten that result.  This will have global social and economic impacts few of see.  

Why is myopia and low sex steroid hormones linked to missing AM UV light? 

What does pseudohypoxia (low NAD+) mean to our hormone panel? The cost of a high aerobic capacity is a low fertility rate; I mentioned that in Ubiquitination 6.   This is why the pregnenolone steal syndrome exists in modern humans everytime I look and why males suffer low testosterone and females have an upside down PG/E2 ratio’s.  They are all dehydrated too.  I see it on MRI’s scans.   It is not what the primary care doctors or the anti-aging docs think is behind this.  The PVN makes the choice for cortisol production over sex steroid production solely because our mitochondria are designed to work best with oxygen as the terminal electron acceptor.  They can’t do that in an artificial lit environment missing AM UV light signals.  You’d be wise to remember that UV and IR AM light frequencies are capable of raising venous O2 levels.  Venous oxygenation is lowered in almost all disease states when we sample it.  UV light alone, has the ability in animals to raise O2, but we also fail to see that when it is daylight plants absorb massive amounts of atmospheric CO2 to make oxygen.  The atmospheric oxygen helps out mitochondria because we use oxygen as our terminal electron acceptor.  In this way oxygen allows electron transport to run fast.  When it runs fast we stay well.  This same motion is found in the hexagonal retinal RPE and in chloroplast of plants.  Both run quickly when UV light frequencies are present for these animal and plant cells, as proven by the time lapsed video’s done by Dr. John Ott in the 1960’s.  We have missed these details.  We rarely check venous oxygenation in our patients,  unless the patient is in an ICU or has an arterial blood gas.  What else do these people have or can expect to develop? They become anemic, which causes a lack of catalase in their RBC’s.  RBC’s are filled with hemoglobin that binds oxygen and they are filled with porphyrins that absorb all frequencies of UV light.  Low levels of RBC’s in our blood cause a build up of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), a free radical.  Catalase normally gets rid of hydrogen peroxide.  It cannot if you are anemic.  This is why doctors have a condition in their Merck manual called anemia of chronic disease.  They have no clue why it happens and now you do.  It is due to a lack of UV AM light.  Missing your AM UV light frequencies for any reason,  fuels this low fertility by way of the anterior pituitary relays.  These relays connect to the leptin-melanocortin pathways.  This is why leptin controls fecundity and ovulation selection in humans.  Modern Optogeneic research now shows us we can get anterior release of these hormones with light.  They use red light only, because they falsely still believe UV is dangerous.  Since UV has a shorter wavelength IT contains more power than red light.  This means UV light in the eye can reverse disease faster than any drug on this planet.  UV light is a lot more powerful than clomid or bio identical hormones.  Our modern versions of artificial light, covering our eyes,  to subtract UV light gives our SCN the stimuli of a defective spectrum;  it also makes fertility doctors and anti aging doctors rich and busy.

The central retinal pathways project to the anterior lobe of the pituitary and control the hormones and their release.  The central retinal-SCN-hypothalamic-pituitary axis needs 290-415 nm light exposure in the AM to function properly.  This is why your hormones from the anterior pituitary are almost exclusively released between 6-10 AM as I laid out in the Cold Thermogenesis 7 blog post years ago.  This is also why I been telling my members as soon as they rise they need to go look in the direction of the rising sun and basking their skin in it for period of  time as soon as they rise.  I also warned them not do it behind glass, plastic, or glasses, ever.  Now you know why I said it.   The worse myopia becomes the more choroidal thickening one gets (we should expect higher pressures in the eye).  As the high pressure rises dopamine release drops  and the eye elongates and gets larger.  When the process occurs chronically dopamine will drop in the frontal lobes and you’ll get fat.  If it goes on longer, you might lose dopamine in your substantia nigra and get Parkinson’s disease.  

The higher pressure in the retina or longer the elongation the higher the risk is for cataract formation, glaucoma, retinal detachments, macular degeneration, myopia, neuro-degeneration, obesity, and autonomic instability.  Why might that be the case?  The mechanisms suspected in the ophthalmic literature for choroidal thickening were ocular hypotony, impaired drainage in the vortex system (low magnetic flux), and severe intraocular inflammation (more protons to electrons).  Ocular hypotony not only occurs in the extra ocular eye muscles to cause myopia, but when it affects the eye saccades speeds,  it lowers dopamine levels in the frontal eye fields and this is how neuro-degeneration begins in the human brain.  You might have heard humans have this problem globally with explosive growth of  PD, HD, and AD problem in the last 50 years that is exploding and getting worse even while they are doing more thing correctly with diet and exercise.  

Cataract surgery, also explosive,  often increase choroid thickness, by itself, and the situation is worsened if the replacement lens that blocks UV light is often implanted by the physician.  This is why so many people post cataract surgery complain that light bothers their eye.  When you block UV light from the eye the pupil dialates more because the ciliary muscles are chronically psudohypoxic.  UV light generates oxygen.  This steepens the decline in wellness in the eye but in all the things it is connected too.  The central retina directly links to the SCN and hypothalamus.  As myopia gets worse people get sicker from neolithic diseases.  This is how this “eye clock surface” breaks downs and destroys health and the biochemistry in other cells.  All of these conditions link back to blood flow, light frequency, pseudohypoxia, and low NAD+ levels in the eye and all increase disease of aging because they increase ubiquitin marking or proteins.  All of these things were discussed in detail in Ubiquitination 23.  Let’s review it, again.  

Ubi 23 said, “Power in light waves is a function of its frequency. It is the only way the power of light can be modified in nature. When the frequency is changed, what else occurs simultaneously in mitochondrial cytochromes? The amount and type of free radical signals released also change. When nitrogen gets oxidized, this means electrons are taken away from its molecular structure. When electrons are removed from any proteins it makes them less hydrophilic (things swell, like the choroid) and as a result, the size of the EZ in cells drops. This is also true in the MINOS that surrounds the cytochromes. The MINOS must remain reduced, ie: filled with electrons, to maintain a large EZ to continue to be able to exclude protons. This is why the mitochondrial matrix is filled with protons and why there should not be a lot of free protons outside the matrix. This sets up chemiosmotic gradient between the two areas of a cell. This can be used to do work and harvest energy. When the size of the EZ drops, ammonia rises and the mTOR pathway is activated. Resveratrol, turmeric, and metformin has been shown to prevent ammonia toxicity in cells. When protons cannot be contained within the matrix or the EZ decreases the mTOR pathway is activated. This is why mTor expression is a problem for generating longevity. It works by limiting or lowering ubiquitin marking of proteins in cells. With mTOR activation we see pseudohypoxia develop, NAD+ levels drops, and NADH rises at cytochrome 1.”

Why should you care deeply about the nitrogen atoms present in NAD+? When nuclear NAD+ levels drop, cells lose the ability to properly regulate mitochondrial homeostasis independently of PGC-1α/β pathways. PGC-1α is a transcriptional coactivator that regulates the genes involved in energy metabolism in cells. PCG-1α is a so activated by endurance exercise and sprinting. PGC-1α is a major regulator of mitochondrial biogenesis and function. This pathway helps cells get rid of redox shifted mitochondria that cannot make energy well. I spoke about them in the Ubi 4-7 blogs. Those are mitochondria ruined by blue light at night, nnEMF, and 24/7 carbohydrate uses. This protein interacts with the nuclear receptor PPAR-γ, which permits the interaction of this protein with multiple transcription factors to optimize energy production in cells by optimizing mitochondrial function. This protein can interact with, and regulate the activities of, cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB) and nuclear respiratory factors (NRFs). It provides a direct link between external physiological stimuli (think environment) and the regulation of mitochondrial biogenesis. This pathway is responsible in regulating muscle fiber types in skeletal muscle. This fully explains why the extra ocular eye muscles get atonic and the eye gets longer in myopia.  This leads to dopamine levels dropping in the retina.  It also explains why they ciliary muscles fatigue and this cause the shape change in the lens to cause myopia in the anterior eye. The fiber type in the skeletal muscles involved determines how sensitive or resistant we are to insulin and glucose and how well we can use fats in these muscles. This is also true in your extra ocular muscles and ciliary muscles.  It is also why the eye saccade speeds correlate with neuro-degeneration in the brain.  It is a thermostat for the break down in the “eye clock”.  All of this is tied directly the the environment the mitochondria is sensing in the environment or surface of that organ. The mitochondria of the retina respond to the frequencies of light as the day evolves.  All this happens before there is any changes in the nuclear genome. This shows you that the environment dictates to the genome. It is not the other way around as modern science keeps regurgitating. This also shows how a badly lit environment at our eye surfaces, is capable of uncoupling light from nitrogen and water cycles to alter carbon flows in biochemical pathways.  This is why dopamine falls, the RPE of the retina is destroyed, and DHA is destroyed to lead to macular degeneration.  Taking a DHA supplement will fix nothing if you dont fix the proper light signaling.  Thus, artificial light becomes a big problem for the human eye because it is missing its AM UV frequencies.  Missing these frequencies are fully capable of increasing ubiquitin rates for all proteins in humans in ALL CELLS.  Why?  THE SCN HAS HIERARCHAL CONTROL FOR THE ENTIRE ORGANISM.  CLEAR NOW?

Missing UV AM eye frequencies combined with a bombardment of night time artificial blue light frequencies also increase the atomic size of the respiratory proteins in the respiratory proteins. Why is this a big deal?  it cause swelling and inflammation which alter the optics in they eye and can disrupt the central retinal electrical signaling to the SCN.  Did I not say this 4 years ago in Cold Thermogenesis 4, The Holy Trinty?  Have a re-read, because I been telling you the same story over and over again at deeper and deeper levels.  We now are at light frequency.  There is no smaller place to go.  The metabolic trap door was in the eye.  I have been telling you the truth  a long time.  Optimal health is an environmental decision and choice, not a genetic lottery.

The choroid of the eye is capable of changing its size and volume because of the blood flow it receives.  Swelling is a sign of a loss of energy in the choroid.  This means it can affect the intraocular pressures in the eye too.  This links it to glaucoma and cataract formation.  The amount of blood it receives is directly tied to the amount and frequency of light it receives. In a myopic eye light does not fall at the fovea where it should, and it is devoid of AM UV frequencies.  This means non full spectrum sunlight falls short of choroid and lands anterior to the retina,  changing the normal scattering of light within the eye.  This alters electrical signaling and photochemical transduction.   All circadian mismatches occur in the  same fashion on our surfaces in the skin,gut, lung, as I mentioned in Ubiquitination 23.

THE EYE SURFACE AND ADRENAL FATIGUE ……..yep that too!

The choroid of the eye is primarily a vascular structure supplying the outer retina. It has several unusual features: It contains large membrane-lined lacunae,  function in some animals as part of the lymphatic drainage of the eye and which can change their volume dramatically, thereby changing the thickness of the choroid as much as four-fold over a few days (much less in humans and primates).  This however does occur in them and steepens as the myopia increases.  This can lead to early aging and early death.  Why?  The choroid is linked to the SCN outflow tracks of the central retina.   The choroid contains non-vascular smooth muscle cells, especially behind the fovea, the contraction of which may thin the choroid, thereby opposing the thickening caused by expansion of the lacunae. It has intrinsic choroidal neurons, also mostly behind the central retina, which may control these muscles and may modulate choroidal blood-flow as well. When mitochondria in this area swell they get pseudohypoxic and NAD+ levels drop.  This slows ETC flow by increasing the size of the respiratory proteins in this part of the eye, and this slows electrical outflow to the SCN to slow its function down to alter circadian cycles that control ubiquitin rates in cells.  This system controls every cell in our body via the peripheral clock genes.  These central retinal choroidal neurons receive sympathetic, parasympathetic and nitrergic innervation linking them to the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the brainstem.  Here again you can see where a surface change drives the altered biochemistry in deeper tissues.  When electrical signal declines in this system of neurons, firing rates in the PVN decline and adrenal fatigue is the clinical result.   Taking herbs and foods as a therapy is misplaced prescription for this condition as a first step.  The environment must be altered first.  If this is not recommended it tells you the person making the recommendations has no idea what they are talking about.

 

INSIGHT BOMB:  The shorter the wavelength the more cancer/disease we should expect. True or false? Answer: what has bending got to do with the frequency of light?  A LOT.  How much do you know about refraction?  Remember that in the day time our cells have a lot of EZ.  The EZ has a higher refraction rate and is more dense.  It is more viscous.  This means light can’t move throughout it quickly.  At night we have less EZ so we don’t need highly powered UV to dash through the EZ.  Here we can use the longer wavelength IR light.  Guess what?  That is why your mitochondria releases IR light at night while you are in ketosis!   The quickest path in life is not always straight.  Counterintuitive truth bomb of physics.  Blue light fits this bill because it is highly powered at shorter frequencies (UV) than it is at higher ones (blue light); More power translated to smaller frequency of the wavelength.  It means it can “swim faster through tissues”, like the more viscous EZ during the day.   Analogy time: Think of a life guard. He can run faster on the beach than he can swim in water right? So if he were going to save a growing man would he talk the shorter path that requires the most time swimming in water, or would he take a longer path that allowed him to get to the victim first?  Light acts the same way. As light becomes more blue, especially at night, the situation worsens because the wavelength gets longer and its power drops. Blue light in the AM does not have the same effects as blue light at night, but few people really have thought about this. I mentioned it in Ubiquitination 20 to crickets. The reason for this is the pigments in proteins are activated at different times of the day because of the frequency difference within the blue range. In the AM we need shorter blue lights UV in the 290 nm-420 range to swim through more EZ water at our surface skin. EZ has a higher viscosity and higher density therefore it has a higher refractive index to light. At night we need to avoid anything between 420- 480 nm blue peak, because this is when melanopsin activates the pineal to make melatonin from this light frequency. Light below 48onm turns off melatonin production and can destroy sleep. This is why is longer blue frequency are used at night as the pineal signal from the central retina. The central retina uses AM UV to turn on the pituitary and turn off the Pineal. AM sunlight is more highly powered to activate the release of pituitary hormones from the anterior lobe. The energy of its constituent photons increases, and the number of materials (proteins) which can be excited to a high energy state and usefully convert that energy to light diminishes rapidly. When blue light is dialed down in power (nitrogen interaction in proteins like NAD+ and FADH2) you should expect lowered cancer rates, while retaining a higher capacity to regenerate well. This is why we need UV light in the AM and we need to avoid blue light after sunset. Regeneration = a strong DC electric current = higher nighttime melatonin level = a strong AM UV signal. In you, your vitamin D3 level should also be higher in the AM because of its initial interaction of UVB light in your skin surfaces. When that light frequency signal is altered or missing, so will the signaling in the deeper levels of the skin cells and arterioles that feed these tissues oxygen. Arterioles bring blood RBC’s and hemoglobin and porphyrins that bring oxygen and UV light.  If they don’t bring both this lowers oxygen at the end of ETC transport in mitochondria, slows the electron flow (like we see in RPE and chloroplasts missing UV)  and pseudohypoxia results. Sound familiar?  AM sunlight increases O2 delivery to the the skin when light hits RBC’s because of what RBC’s contain. Porphyrins and hemoglobin. RBC’s deliver oxygen to mitochondria optimally in the skin when this situation occurs, so as a result, there is more venous oxygen present. This means that AM sunlight (UV-IR) increases venous oxygen levels naturally. This is frequency affect of AM sunlight. As the frequency of light in your environment decreases or is missing , autoimmunity and obesity should be expected to rise quickly in populations based upon these physical relationships. Does this set of circumstance sound familiar to anyone? Are you worried about anything now?
Plants and humans have the same UV systems built into them. Plants lose their ability to regenerate with artificial light exposure at night as well. In this circumstance, they make less O2 and consume less CO2, while their ubiquitin rates increase!! This makes us more pseudohypoxic!  The reverse of this situation fully explains why the Warburg metabolism exists in animals who face the same loss of UV light in daytime while using blue light at night.  Cancer manifests when you break both sides of the equation in people who are exposed to chronic changes 24/7 artificial light. Why? They are missing AM UV light in their central retina, while destroying DHA levels in the SCN at night lowering melatonin and destroying sleep.  Still think paleo foods can help you?  Supplements?

CONSTRUCT YOUR OWN BIO HACK OF YOUR LIGHT ENVIRONMENT: UNDERSTANDING HOW THE QUANTLET WORKS

If you buy or rent a spectrometer you can access the light emission from what your eye sees for yourself.  The longer you stay in or under these artificial lights or use TV or technology the more likely you will develop myopia and hormone disruption because of how the central retinal tracts works with natural sunlight.  This is doubly true if you use modern laptops, iPhone, tablets or TV’s which all use LED technology.  These lights are not full spectrum lights like the sunlight provides.  Our eyes and CNS are designed to need UV light in the AM and none of it in the PM.  We break both sides of this circadian cycle.  Plants also have a light and dark side to their photosynthesis but we do not see the homology in them and us.  It exists and the boom in myopia and hormone dysfunction is proof of concept.  The main reasons for the light spectrum change given by governments and captains of industry is that they have been developed is because of the 40 year need to limit X-rays emissions from TV’s and indoor lighting from fluorescent light bulbs.  There was some damning data on this source of artificial light in the 19-60’s and 1970’s done by Dr. John Ott.  His work caused massive recalls of color TV’s because they were emitting serious amounts of X-rays even when the standards were poor.  I remember having our TV removed by a repair man when I was young.  I also remember that my sister sat in front of that TV for many years before the problem was recognized.  My sister and I are complete opposites in real life and I often wonder if that was the etiology of our divide.   The only reason Edison’s incandescent bulbs went away is because they were energy inefficient and costing us money as a country on a population basis.  My bet is that we will spend thousands fold more on the coming health crisis because of the new LED bulbs.  It has just begun.  The crazy part is that even though they were energy hogs, they released mostly IR light which has very few health side effects.  In fact, they have some very beneficial health effects on mitochondrial function and wound healing that we covered in detail in the May 2015 webinar with Mr. Ruben Salinas co-founder of the Quantum Dynamics.

SUMMARY

Activity doesn’t achievement. The most difficult roads lead to the summit. Your summit should be where your passion is buried. Sometimes your light shines so bright that it blinds folks from seeing who you really are. Do not stop.  Continue, even if they mock and ridicule you. Once their eyes adapt to your light, they will be shocked at your results, and what you saw that no one else saw.   That is the mark of a renegade and innovator.  Sometimes, we have to look back to see what the brightest among of us has missed to help our entire species.  Actions are the translators of your thoughts. People awaken to this perception of you only after their eyes adapt to the light you shine on the world.

Enemies of truth are hidden within our convictions and beliefs. What are our truths ultimately? They are our irrefutable errors in judgement.  Humans have made a ton of these in the 20th century.  The result is the creation of neolithic disease by altering the surfaces to light frequencies.  We have mistaken technologic progress for biologic extinction.

When you become coherent with the music within you, that is when you can make sense of the distraction going on around you.

  26. BIO HACK LIGHTING PRIMER:We can make our bio hacks more scientific and quantitative by using hand-held plastic spectrometers or apps on our phone to check our mobile technology and TV displays. They give us data that display the spectra against a wavelength scale of visible light. In this way we can check the wavelength of light against what we would see if we were out in the sun. Artificial light is, in my opinion, the most significant non native EMF modern man faces. Spectrometers give a quantitative measure of the wavelength of light, they give no information about the relative intensities of the different wavelengths. Intensity of light is measured in foot candles or by erg-seconds per square centimeter. Roughly 2 million ergs is equivalent to 19 minutes of full summer noon day sunlight at a latitude in the mid section of the USA. This brings up an important point. Light intensity does not have standards in many citations, so if you go hunting for it you need a small primer on light intensity if you want to figure out how how much artificial light is affecting your surfaces in your eye, skin, gut, or lungs.LIGHT PRIMER FOR EQUIVALENCE MEASUREMENTS FOR YOUR OWN BIO HACKSA foot-candle (fc) is a non-SI unit of illuminance or light intensity widely used in the United States in photography, film, television, conservation lighting, greenhouse horticulture, the lighting industry, construction-related engineering and in building codes. The name “footcandle” conveys “the illuminance cast on a surface by a one-candela source one foot away. One foot-candle is equal to one lumen per square foot or approximately 10.764 lux. We will get to lumens and lux soon. Full, unobstructed sunlight has an intensity of approximately 10,000 fc. An overcast day will produce an intensity of around 1,000 fc. The intensity of light near a window can range from 100 to 5,000 fc, depending on the orientation of the window, time of year and latitude.Say you have an old Edison style lamp. You are told it produces 100 foot candles of light. That means at one foot from the lamp, you will receive 100 foot candles of light.A LUMEN is a unit of measurement of light. It measures light much the same way. Remember, a foot-candle is how bright the light is one foot away from the source. A lumen is a way of measuring how much light gets to what you want to light! A LUMEN is equal to one foot-candle falling on one square foot of area.So, if we take your candle and ruler, lets place a book at the opposite end from the candle. We’d have a bit of a light up if we put the book right next to the candle, you know. If that book happens to be one foot by one foot, it’s one square foot. OK, got the math done there. Now, all the light falling on that book, one foot away from your candle equals both…….1 foot candle and one lumen! One foot-candle is equal to one lumen per square foot or approximately 10.764 lux.

    RADIANCE and ILLUMINANCE

    RADIANCE is another way of saying how much energy is released from that light source. Again, you measure it at the source. Unless you’re talking about measuring the radiance of something intensely hot, like the Sun. Then you might want to measure it at night, when it’s off.

    ILLUMINANCE is what results from the use of light. You turn your flashlight on in a dark room, and you light something up. That’s ILLUMINANCE. Turning on a light in a dark room to make the burglar visible gives you ILLUMINANCE. It also gives you another problem when you note the thief has a gun pointing at you.

    Illuminance is the intensity or degree to which something is illuminated and is therefore not the amount of light produced by the light source. This is measured in foot-candles again! And when people talk about LUX, it’s illuminance measured in metric units rather than English units of measure. To reinforce that, LUX is the measurement of actual light available at a given distance. A lux equals one lumen incident per square meter of illuminated surface area. They’re measuring the same thing, just using different measurement units. Remember,one foot-candle is equal to one lumen per square foot or approximately 10.764 lux. If you go to Home Depot or Lowe’s to buy bulbs you will see all these terms mixed together. They do it on purpose hoping you’ll think they are more scientific and therefore, more healthy. You will soon see, this should not dictate your choices.

    LUX is an abbreviation for Lumens per square meter. Foot-candles equal the amount of Lumens per square feet of area.

    A candlepower as a unit of measure (English) is not the same as a foot-candle. A candlepower is a measurement of the light at the source, not at the object you light up.

    In theater or warehouses something else is used to measure light intensity. Nowadays we use the term CANDELA instead of candlepower. Candlepower, or CANDELA is a measure of how much light the bulb produces, measured at the bulb, rather than how much falls upon the thing you want to light up. Further confusing the matter is beam focus. That’s how much candlepower can be focused using a reflector/lens assembly. Obviously, if you project all your light bulbs intensity at a given spot, or towards something, it will be more intense, and the illuminance will be higher.

    And for you figuring out LED equivalents, first you must know how many lumens your LED’s each produce. Then divide that value by 12.57 and you have candlepower of the LED. You don’t have foot-candles, remember foot-candles are illuminance. And we are measuring radiance.

    Summing it all up:

    Candlepower is a rating of light output at the source, using English measurements (rarely have I seen this in the USA).

    Foot-candles are a measurement of light at an illuminated object.

    Lumens are a metric equivalent to foot-candles in that they are measured at an object you want to illuminate.

    Divide the number of lumens you have produced, or are capable of producing, by 12.57 and you get the candlepower equivalent of that light source.

    We’ve now converted a measurement taken some distance from the illuminated object, converted it from a metric standard to an English unit of measure, and further converted it from a measure of illumination to a measure of radiation! Hopefully you’ll find this helpful in your bio hacks should you see these or hear these things from your local stores or human resource departments. I can tell you when I tried to figure out the light intensity in my operating room I needed all of these to get an idea of just how much artificial light I was getting and it was staggering. No wonder I got ill ten years ago before I began to mitigate the risks. The dentist office came in a very distant number two. This is why I wear my blue blockers and do some other things before I go to get my teeth cleaned.

Comments

  1. Paul Gunning says:

    Aged 12 in the UK diagnosed with myopia in both eyes due to astigmatism (elongated) – late nights, light in bedroom, first gen user of video games (my parents ran a pub!). Wore glasses but switched to contacts but due to severe astigmatism in the right eye have only worn blue tinted contact in the left eye. Wondering what kind of circadian cluster f**k this arrangement has caused e.g. getting UV full spectrum in right eye but due to astigmatism not going to the right place and getting little to no UV in left eye. Can my severe myopia be reversed with morning AM light, red light, DHA?

    • Paul key point……you did all this in live in a place with some of the worse levels of UV on the planet. Think about your famous crazy King who killed all his wives now. A T2D way before most with a horrible osteomyelitis of his leg from a jousting injury…….now you know why he acted as he did (no brain dopamine) why he got obese, and why he got osteomyelitis and why he never healed…….ruler of a kingdom with no UV light he stayed in his castle his whole life burying the sun after his injury. I think all myopia can be bio-hacked. That is what live events and Q & A’s are for……….not the internet

  2. Jack
    For those who wear glasses or contacts how do we get am uv?

    • Vince take the glasses or contact off and look 15-25 degrees away from the sun but in its East wood direction…….how long depends upon your latitude and personal context. Those are things I tease out in details with my members in Q & A’s

  3. What about far sighted? as we age we get more far sighted…..good for near sighted peeps but not for already far sighted?

  4. Wow, I have been in glasses since I was 2 – wonder why? So I guess this is why once you are in glasses, your myopia just gets worse because you don’t get UV light – now, they have glasses that automatically darken when in the sun – not sure if that’s any worse actually now that I think about it –

    I have a kid who is perpetually on a computer – he wears blue blockers, but rarely goes into the sun – my question is, what is the bare minimum in your opinion of morning UV rays one needs to avoid myopia? To say I am sick with worry is the understatement of the year – now he has acne, which of course is a huge tell… I told him to at least face the door so the sun hits his skin – it hits his back, but that’s not going to help his eyes…

    These kids today have zero dopamine, make no hormones and care little about anything but being “online” – reasoning has gone out the window – and the fireworks you get if you unplug their machines… sigh.

    I’m thinking he would have been better off at school with all the cell phones and wireless than sitting in front of a computer all day long… really, how much worse can that be?

    I am walking the beach every morning with my glasses off and I’m thinking about taking up surf fishing:-) I also think my eyesight has improved just from eating seafood because my glasses don’t work very well anymore and the stronger ones work worse than the weaker prescription – these last 4 blogs have blown my mind – truly doc, take a bow:-)

  5. thanks doc:-)

    I have decided that was my “missing link” – in fact, it had fleetingly occurred to me many times WTF am I doing with these glasses on –

    I think it’s possible that I was myopic because my mom might have run a night light – other than that, clueless – weirdly, at the age of 38 and 40 I conceived 2 boys – I don’t think it took 3 months – but I know I have been leptin resistant all my life – my food consumption was the stuff of legends – never had a weight problem but then I exercised to the sublime – to say I was inflamed was the understatement of the year –

    I spent 5 hours outside today – I’m going to paint the outside of my house:-)

    In fact, except for driving and this computer, I have been going glasses free all day:-)

    I have my son facing the an open doorway in the morning with an Ott light – he’s in an online school – isn’t that enough UV light?

    After my 8 day trip to 8 national parks, I truly didn’t even want to be on a computer – and wasn’t all weekend:-)

    I now love cold showers – was curious though, how cold and long a shower had to be to decrease one’s inflammatory markers –

    And I just got some yellow bulbs and incandescent lights from Lowe’s for some lamps – shhh -mum’s the word… 🙂

  6. Hi there,

    This could explain why some people practicing Sun Gazing get rid of Myopia.

    • Cedric this blog did that. UV and IR light in the AM increase oxygen within the eye muscle to fix the defect in the eye shape and lens shape. Gazing directly into the sun is not recommended or needed to help myopia.

  7. Dr. K…

    Pieces of the puzzle continue to fall into place. After reading this blog post, I was thrilled to watch the sunrise this morning (shirtless and without my glasses on).

    However, what really got my attention is the role of UVBI for treating infections, and so much more, starting decades ago. My wife wants to pursue a treatment series with Harvoni for her hep C. I’d rather find non-drug alternatives. Your comments have led me to explore the HUGE amount of information on UVBI. Indeed, one article that just appeared last month (epub in June; URL below) shows the continued medical interest in it.

    http://www.ijidonline.com/article/S1201-9712%2815%2900140-X/pdf

    The only surprise is that striving for FDA approval for a treatment that was established long ago makes it seem ‘new’.

    Anyway, many thanks for the lead. And everything else.

  8. Great blog! For the visit to the dentist- blueblockers and what else?

  9. “I found out that the longer wavelength UV and blue light 400-500 nm light lowered DHA levels and worked with melanopsin in the central retina at sunset.” Is this a good thing or a bad thing? If it lowers DHA I would think that would be bad, but if the DHA is consumed by collecting electrons, it would be a good thing.

    • Its a good thing if you dont see those frequencies post sunset……..ITs a killer if you do. That was the story of Ubi 5 and 6. It destroys DHA but it does a whole lot more to your SCN and it the speeds of the SCN to compare to the body clocks. AM UV light drives the pigmented granules in the RPE to spin faster than they would if there was no UV light. Why? UV light has a shorter frequency therefore carries more electrical power to run the SCN faster. DHA has the ability to deliver that power from the RPE to the SCN while maintaining the speed and it can turn sunlight into a DC electric current in neurons when we are awake. This is why Becker found the DC current is operational in daylight and disappears at night. IT is also why the voltage of the DC current is regenerative in plants, animals and mammals.

  10. Dr. Kruse, would face CT w/ your eyes open before and during AM sun would be a good idea?

    • It would for a myopia hack but you would need decent AM UV frequencies……inside the tropics I think this works but this is also why people tear up with sun exposure on the eye so that the cornea cools and more UV gets to the RPE in the eye to drive the DC electric.

  11. Great talking to you today. I forgot to mention that my city of Anchorage is about to replace all public and street lights with LEDs. What can I possibly do to bring to their attention the dangers of the LED lights ? Also, the automobile LED lights have always caused me big problems. Do you know if there is a coming ban on them or a way to protest their use ?

  12. What is the brand and item # of the UV fertility light you mentioned at the top of the post. We spoke today about me putting black lights (UV fertility light ) in my house. I looked on Amazon and found several types. I want to be very sure I get the correct one.

  13. Jan Petter Norli Olsen says:

    I was wondering if you had a hack for people who have had cataract surgery with acrylic intraocular lenses implanted. I have experienced all kinds of health issues since surgery 12 years ago, and reading your paper was an eye opener. But how to negotiate the issuses caused by the lenses still eluded me.

    • Jan find out if the lenses block UV or not

      • I talked to my Eye Dr. 3 days ago about replacing my cataract lenses with lenses that would pass UB light. He said he did not know if they made them. He told me that he would not replace my lenses, even if they did make them. I had trouble with both of my surgeries and am at high risk of a detached retina. I was blind in my right eye for 2 weeks after surgery on my right eye and had a scratch on my left eye that took 2 weeks to heal.

        So, it looks like I need to find the best work around that I can. I had these surgeries in 2005. I look directly at the early morning sun and later in the morning look to the East of the sun, with my eye lids pulled open. Would these lenses keep me from having Optimal vitamin D3 levels. I sun bathe naked about 1 hours each morning and expose 90 % of my skin to after noon sun for about 30 minutes.

      • Jan Petter Olsen says:

        I got the specs for my cataract implants. I see a fast drop from about 420nm and cut off completly at about 370. The body’s own cystaline lens in a 55 year old starts dropping from about 600nm and falls to about 400nm, wher the line flattens out at about 4% transparence and goes all the way down to about 220nm. There is a peak at about 320nm, where it spikes at about 8-10%. The Ophthalmologist I talked to advised me against surgery because of a higher risk of complications, but he hasn’t read your post yet, I hope he does. I’ve been spreading a link around the web. I understand I have a problem, and am thinking about getting surgery , but I also have to find out what IOL I could use. THe non UV blocking ones seem to let in light down to 320nm.Am still looking. I found a doctor that agrees with you, based on some tests
        (In fact, two of the studies evenclaimed the opposite to be true,that the more blue light that aperson was exposed tothroughout his life corresponded with a lower risk of maculardegeneration (Rotterdam and New South Wales studies).

        • I am working with some lens manufacturers now to make non UV blocking lenses. IT will be tough sledding because of conventional precepts on light

          • Jan P. Olsen says:

            I did a search for IOL manufacturers , and send out some emails regarding non-uv blocking IOL’s. Many of the big US companies don’t even publish a contact email address. I did get a response from a India located producer, and the person thanked me for your article, but of course the thanks goes to you. Here’s his reply.
            Dear Jan,
            That’s really a Million dollar information on health benefits. One of most precious gift to our living life is our vision and protecting and nourishing them is our core responsibility. I personally feel your article is going to be my motivation for early morning wake-up and walk.

    Great initiative, You got to have stamina to talk to wall and try to get it to fall.
    I found a UK study on Pubmed that shows a mortality rate of 12% in middle-aged people 5-10 years after cataract surgery. The average mortality rate in this group was 7%. This would be explained by your findings.
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11339593
    I found that clear acrylic plexiglass has a light transmission that mimics the human crystaline lens pretty close, but pmma iol’s have uv filtering agents. When it comes to hydrophobic acrylic I,ve hit a wall. All searches concerning acrylic IOL’s show Uv blocking addatives, even the so called non- Uv blocking ones it seems.
    As my lenses admit some UV light from 370nm and up, do you think extra light from f.ex. a sunlamp could help? The days are getting shorter up here in Norway. I inherited a philips sunlight lamp, but they do not radiate UV light. Also I have been getting bioresonance treatment, with magnetic pads,and that can really boost my energy for a couple of days.
    I like a person that acts with his heart as well as his mind. Thanks for your replies. I’ll still keep searching for an IOL that lets in UV.

    • I have found that the other part of the eye can actually absorb some UV so there is some hope. It means the person with implants needs to be more diligent in their behaviors with regards to purple light.

      • I have 3 Duracell, 14 watt, black lights that I got today, installed around our house. I notice that they give off some purple light. Is this purple light good for those of us that have UV blocking lenses implanted.

        • RWR I have them all over my house. Can you get UV in the AM when it is cloudy?
          Most of the UV light is UVA in this instance. Those are the same frequencies in black lights. Clouds absorb UV radiation, reducing ground-level UV intensity. Clear skies allow virtually 100% of UV to pass through, scattered clouds transmit 89%, broken clouds transmit 73%, and overcast skies transmit 31%.

          • Dr. K.
            I think these spiral CFL black light bulbs are not desirable because CFL lamps contain toxic mercury (it’s in a vapor and phosphor powder form– a ‘mini-hazmat’ cleanup chore if one breaks– it happened to me on a standard CFL). CFL lamps are also known for creating dirty electricity (irregular waveforms with unhealthy EMF emissions) in the household wiring.
            Can you recommend black light bulbs in the LED or incandescent light bulb models, or is there something wrong with those too?

          • C. Henry complex answer because of how complex light is. I only tell folks to avoid mercury vapor fluorescent bulbs if they have documented mercury toxicity. Hg bulbs are a light source that can act as a sender of resonant energy. Hg in your body can act as the receiver of resonant energy if it is present. This is one of the reasons I am not in favor of amalgam removal. It seems counterintuitive to my core beliefs but let me explain. In its free form, Hg easily vaporizes at room temperatures. It likes to find harbor in fatty tissues like When Hg is charged by current is has a spectral array that give two lines in the violet at 404.66 And 407.79, one in the indigo range at 435.84, one in turquoise at 490.05, one in lemon at 546.08 and two in the yellow range at 576.92 and 579.03. It binds to sulfur enzymes to remove them from use and interferes with ECT directly by lowering energy production. I am not worried about Hg resonance with indoor lights because UV light does not penetrate our surfaces deeply.

            Epidermis and light penetration.

            But I worry about it a lot in dental reconstructions because most biologic dentists are completely unaware of the risks of resonant light transfer from fluorescent or LED bulbs in their dental lights, offices, or their oral work lamps. If they are going to work on you in this environment, you should request a red lit environment when undergoing removal of amalgams. their offices are built with blue/white LED and fluorescent lights with high color temperatures. This is akin to putting a match to gasoline with respect to Hg. Blue light can penetrate into fat layers where Hg lies, and dentists wear lamps on their heads that have extreme blue spikes at 435 nm with high color temperatures that can photoelectrically energize Hg in your tissues. This risk is much greater with blue artificial light because it penetrates far deeper that UVA light can as the picture above shows. Hg is rarely found in surfaces of the body. there is speculation it maybe in the retina but if true I should be dead considering how much DHA is in my RPE.

          • Hi Jack,

            Do you only use these black lights between 6 and 10 am to get the UVA you speak about in ubi 25? Thanks

          • No Sophie I don’t.

      • Earnestness means willingness to live with energy, though this energy come reality, comes your life. Do you want to be deep or superficial? Surface dwellers are what society calls hip or the in crowd. Being earnest comes from our depths and our core. It stops only when the job is complete. Being hip only lasts til the next fashion season. Time begins and ends with a light meter in your eye. So if you have implanted lenses all hope is not lost…….be earnest and not hip and get your eye to see the full solar spectrum. Get rid of your sun glasses and take your spectacles off as much as possible and ditch all contacts. http://www.futurity.org/eyes-cornea-light-1020822-2/

    The UV light /mercury connection, that got me thinking. I have a gold/palladium porcelain bridge upstairs with some amalgam fillings beneath, a couple of amalgam fillings elsewhere, and had lots of amalgam patching before, after cracking and splitting teeth in a bike crash 30 years ago.The rest is more of less composite reconstruction, last done 8 months ago withTetric EvoCeram. A Bicom allergy test later shows I am sensitive to it, also mercury. I told the dentist I was sensitized to 2K paint after spray exposure, specifically polyurethane, but he said it would be fine. After that I got numbness/tingling around my mouth that spread up to my temples and into my eyes, sinuses, and a sore throat. .I felt like a zombie, I could hardly walk, my feet were like lead, and a headache left me sleepless for 3 months. I believed the cause the composite, but now I’m thinking blue light and mercury as well, maybe both.
    When I asked the dentist to pull my teeth, he refused and sent me to The Side Effect Group for Odontological Materials, a Norwegian government sponsored research group run by Uni Research,, I ‘m going in 2 weeks time, been waiting for 8 months. I wonder what they’ll do when I say I don’t want any blue light in my mouth! I ‘ll haave take along a headlamp with an Edison bulb. I sent the lead researcher there a link to your post above, but I haven’t got a reply yet. I use your research as an EYE OPENER.
    I guess that would be a good description of you, on more than one level.
    Sunlight, lots of seafood and coconut oil, herbal teas, long ice cold showers, avoiding cereals and EMF/EMR etc are helping me feel better, forget the diagnose. But i did contact the Medigo care team, to order IOL replacement surgery, if they could find a lens that transmitts UV light. I feel sorry for the nice young girl sending requests all around eye clinics in europe, and getting negative results everywhere so far. Nobody seems to make them anymore. Have you heard anything?

  16. Hi Dr Kruse!

    Thanks so much for these blogs, i really found this one particularly helpful! I am confused about one thing, though.

    You say that 290-400nm light is available every AM from about 6-10. I live in new york (state, not city. rural, low emf) and i was under the impression that no UVB gets up here until about April. It says thats 280-315 nm. Does it in fact reach high latitudes in the winter?

    Also (and heres what im really unsure of) does the SPECTRUM of uv or AMOUNT reduce after 10 am? Im wondering why pituitary signaling only happens between 6 and 10 am and if ends because the wavelength of uv changes after that, or there just isnt enough. Is sungazing any time of the day still beneficial to capture whatever UV there still is?

    Thank you for helping us out, Dr. My son has been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and i really want him to do these things correctly

  17. Hey Dr. Kruse,

    Any ideas as to why I would have pretty significant eye floaters in my right eye which has a -0.75 diopter, but not in my left eye which is 20/20? I still have a few in my left eye but they are not nearly as prominent, and I’m not really sure what causes these floaters in the first place.

    • are you right or left handed Dimitri?

      • I’m right handed

        • Then I would tell you to stop handling your phone in that hand and on that side of your head……cause it is affecting your eye and giving you floaters. Inverse square law.

          • Thanks, Dr. Kruse. Now when I think about it I also have a bit of tinnitus in my right ear which is nonexistent in the left probably caused by the phone. Have you ever heard of anyone’s floaters diminishing over time because it was to my understanding that they were inert pieces of collagen, and pretty much stuck in the vitreous for good.

          • Tinnitus and floaters on the same side are a concern. Think about this analogously by visualizing how an atom distributes energy to its electron shells in chemistry. An atom first fills its first shell with electron energies and then works its way outwards to its outermost electron shell. Life’s systems do the same thing because it is about fractal energy design. It is most efficient to do it this way. In this way, the environmental energies coming into to the cell can be thought of as how the orbital valences for electrons are filled first from the ground state closest to the atomic nuclei and proceeding outward to the valence shells. In biology, the lower energy systems required for autonomic or vegetative functions get their energies loaded first, at the expense of the more energy intensive systems, like the brain. If no energy is left over after the basic systems are loaded with energy, the brain runs at an energy deficit, and it directly affects neocortical function. Moreover, the brain is built by evolution to steal energy naturally to preserve its own function in mammals, because it has the physiologic ability to auto-regulate its oxygen and blood flow requirements itself.

            This means that the brain will preserve its function at the expense of other systems. This helps you understand where hypertension really comes from. As energy is lost from our body to the environment for any reason at all, the brain increases mean arterial pressure to maintain its energy status at the expense of other systems. This is why BP rises in non-wellness states. When this happens in the brain, cognition suffers in the regions of the brain that are most energy-inefficient. The next system in line is the immune system. It was the system primates innovated before neurogenesis using the MHC1 gene.

            This is why tinnitus is a big clue to clinicians who think like I do. Ammon’s horn, part of the hippocampus, is the most energy-inefficient part of the neocortex. It is also the first one affected in Alzheimer’s disease. This is why, in anoxia states, we see this area of the cortex die first. The areas affected first by low blood flow or energy are likely the ones that cost us the most energy. This is how hypertension, sleep apnea, migraines and tinnitus show up as symptoms of energy loss from the neocortex because we are deficient in electrons or photons.

            This idea makes common sense when you consider how a coma presents in humans. A coma is a situation where neocortical function is lost and only the vegetative remnants of our brainstem remains. Energy is acutely lost in a coma state from the neocortex, and the brain’s neocortical function is affected first. Vegetative functions remain intact initially while higher brain functions go out first. This implies that how we treat coma presently should also be altered. Coma is an abrupt loss of energy to the neocortex. Neolithic diseases of the brain are a chronic, slow, insidious loss of energy in different parts of the neocortex. It is as if since the loss of energy is slow and insidious, the same process found in a coma situation is unfolding via a different space/time continuum in our life. Since we perceive time based upon our basal metabolic rate, modern humans never seem to perceive this relative change. Einstein’s math says that we should consider it.

          • Thanks so much for the in-depth response. I’m new to your website but I’ll try to start incorporating the general principles you recommend into my life (increasing DHA intake, avoiding artificial blue light/nnEMF, increasing AM sun exposure) and see if I can reverse some of this damage.

  18. I am glad I found this site. A lot is technical that I have a difficult time absorbing. Are you basically saying that we can improve myopia from morning sun? Is there any hope if one has worn glasses or contact lenses for 5-40 years?

    Thank you for valuable information.

  19. Just re-read this today and have a question. If myopia (elongation of eyeball) = light not hitting the fovea correctly = circadian signalling/mismatch then taking off the glasses and getting AM sun will not fix the fovea issue. Would a better a biohack be to source some plastic lenses that do allow UV through and keep on the glasses during am/daytime. I know naturally speaking it is probably much better for eye health to not have glasses and to cycle focusing on the near, mid and far horizons, whereas non-progressive lenses tend to favour one type of distance at expense of others depending on the severity of the myopia.

  20. Thanks for sharing
