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.
