We all do it: the daily habit that accelerates aging05.09.2022
The researchers compared the levels of metabolites in flies exposed to blue light for two weeks with those of flies kept in total darkness. As a result, the level of the succinate metabolite was increased, and the level of glutamate was reduced. Because of this, the cells work at a suboptimal (below standard – ed.) level, which leads to their premature death.
A little more simply, the conclusions of scientists can be formulated as follows: due to exposure to light, genes are activated that protect us from stress. But for the body, this is a shock load, so we should think about the conditions in which we spend our day, how often we pick up a smartphone to scroll through social networks, and how long we sit in front of a laptop.
