#LED#tube light is important to body shaping!

A new study published on the 10th in the Journal of Internal Medicine of the American Medical Association shows that women who turn on the light or sleep on TV may have a higher risk of gaining weight.

Agency France-Presse reported that the study surveyed nearly 44,000 American women for five years and classified them according to their exposure to artificial light sources at night.  Light sources range from nightlight, radio and electronic clocks, street lights to televisions and room lights.

One of the key findings is that women who sleep with TV or room lights on are 17% more likely to gain 5 kg during the study period.  Even if other factors such as sleep hours, diet and exercise are controlled, the correlation is still high.

Sandler and Yong-Moon Park, co-authors of North Carolina's National Institute of Environmental Health (NIEHS), believe that light may inhibit melatonin secretion, disrupt physiological clocks and eating habits, and disrupt the secretion of stress hormones such as glucocorticoids, which play a role in regulating food intake.

The study authors also acknowledged some limitations, including that the data were returned by the interviewees themselves and they did not know the intensity of various light sources. High exposure to light may also reflect a series of factors such as socioeconomic disadvantage and unhealthy lifestyle, which may also lead to weight gain and obesity.
