Medical research on the effects of excessive light on the human body suggests that a variety of adverse health effects may be caused by light pollution or excessive light exposure, and some lighting design textbooks use human health as an explicit criterion for proper interior lighting.

Streetlights in the skiing resort Kastelruth in South Tyrol. Medical research on the effects of excessive light on the human body suggests that a variety of adverse health effects may be caused by light pollution or excessive light exposure, and some lighting design textbooks use human health as an explicit criterion for proper interior lighting.

Health effects of over-illumination or improper spectral composition of light may include: Seoul, which had the highest levels of light pollution, had This suggested a high correlation between ALAN and the prevalence of breast cancer.

It was also found that there was no correlation between other types of cancer such as cervical or lung cancer and ALAN levels. Even if these effects are relatively small from night to night, continuous chronic circadian, sleep and hormonal disruption may have longer-term health risks". News about the decision emphasized glare as a public health hazard leading to unsafe driving conditions.

Especially in the elderly, glare produces loss of contrast, obscuring night vision. Ecological light pollution When artificial light affects organisms and ecosystems it is called ecological light pollution. While light at night can be beneficial, neutral, or damaging for individual species , its presence invariably disturbs ecosystems. For example, some species of spiders avoid lit areas, while other species are happy to build their spider web directly on a lamp post.

Since lamp posts attract many flying insects, the spiders that don't mind light gain an advantage over the spiders that avoid it. This is a simple example of the way in which species frequencies and food webs can be disturbed by the introduction of light at night.

Light pollution poses a serious threat in particular to nocturnal wildlife, having negative impacts on plant and animal physiology. It can confuse animal navigation , alter competitive interactions, change predator-prey relations, and cause physiological harm.

For example, lepidopterists and entomologists have documented that nighttime light may interfere with the ability of moths and other nocturnal insects to navigate. This can lead to species decline of plants that are unable to reproduce, and change an area's longterm ecology. Lampyridae, Phengodidae and Elateridae are especially interesting study objects for light pollution, once they depend on their own light to reproduce and, consequently, are very sensitive to environmental levels of light.

These nocturnal animals are very susceptible to light and its effects. A study also suggests deleterious impacts on animals and ecosystems because of perturbation of polarized light or artificial polarization of light even during the day, because direction of natural polarization of sun light and its reflection is a source of information for a lot of animals.

This form of pollution is named polarized light pollution PLP. Unnatural polarized light sources can trigger maladaptive behaviors in polarization-sensitive taxa and alter ecological interactions. Estimates by the U. Fish and Wildlife Service of the number of birds killed after being attracted to tall towers range from 4 to 5 million per year to an order of magnitude higher.

Similar disorientation has also been noted for bird species migrating close to offshore production and drilling facilities. Studies carried out by Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij b. In early , the lights were installed on the Shell production platform L It is a common misconception that hatchling sea turtles are attracted to the moon.

Rather, they find the ocean by moving away from the dark silhouette of dunes and their vegetation, a behavior with which artificial lights interfere. Introduced light sources during normally dark periods can disrupt levels of melatonin production.

Melatonin is a hormone that regulates photoperiodic physiology and behaviour. Some species of frogs and salamanders utilize a light-dependent "compass" to orient their migratory behaviour to breeding sites.

Introduced light can also cause developmental irregularities, such as retinal damage, reduced juvenile growth, premature metamorphosis, reduced sperm production, and genetic mutation. It dealt with bats, turtles, the "hidden" harms of LAN, and many other topics. The following is an excerpt from that article, called "Electricity and English songbirds": An English journal has become alarmed at the relation of electricity to songbirds, which it maintains is closer than that of cats and fodder crops.

How many of us, it asks, foresee that electricity may extirpate the songbird? With the exception of the finches, all the English songbirds may be said to be insectivorous, and their diet consists chiefly of vast numbers of very small insects which they collect from the grass and herbs before the dew is dry.

As the electric light is finding its way for street illumination into the country parts of England, these poor winged atoms are slain by thousands at each light every warm summer evening The fear is expressed, that when England is lighted from one end to the other with electricity the song birds will die out from the failure of their food supply.

This is one factor that has caused newer telescopes to be built in increasingly remote areas. Some astronomers use narrow-band " nebula filters ", which only allow specific wavelengths of light commonly seen in nebulae , or broad-band "light pollution filters", which are designed to reduce but not eliminate the effects of light pollution by filtering out spectral lines commonly emitted by sodium - and mercury-vapor lamps , thus enhancing contrast and improving the view of dim objects such as galaxies and nebulae.

LPR filters reduce the brightness of the object under study and this limits the use of higher magnifications. LPR filters work by blocking light of certain wavelengths, which alters the color of the object, often creating a pronounced green cast. Furthermore, LPR filters only work on certain object types mainly emission nebulae and are of little use on galaxies and stars.

No filter can match the effectiveness of a dark sky for visual or photographic purposes. Light pollution affects the visibility of diffuse sky objects like nebulae and galaxies more than stars, due to their low surface brightness.

Most such objects are rendered invisible in heavily light-polluted skies above major cities. A simple method for estimating the darkness of a location is to look for the Milky Way , which from truly dark skies appears bright enough to cast a shadow. This direct form of light pollution causes a glow across the field of view , which reduces contrast. Light trespass also makes it hard for a visual observer to become sufficiently adapted to the dark. The usual measures to reduce this glare, if reducing the light directly is not an option, include flocking the telescope tube and accessories to reduce reflection, and putting a light shield also usable as a dew shield on the telescope to reduce light entering from angles other than those near the target.

Under these conditions, some astronomers prefer to observe under a black cloth to ensure maximum adaptation to the dark. Increase in atmospheric pollution A study presented at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco found that light pollution destroys nitrate radicals thus preventing the normal night time reduction of atmospheric smog produced by fumes emitted from cars and factories.

Reduction of natural sky polarization Light pollution is mostly unpolarized, and its addition to moonlight results in a decreased polarization signal. In the night, the polarization of the moonlit sky is very strongly reduced in the presence of urban light pollution, because scattered urban light is not strongly polarized. Reduction This kind of LED droplight could reduce unnecessary light pollution in building interiors Reducing light pollution implies many things, such as reducing sky glow, reducing glare, reducing light trespass, and reducing clutter.

The method for best reducing light pollution, therefore, depends on exactly what the problem is in any given instance. Utilizing light sources of minimum intensity necessary to accomplish the light's purpose.

Turning lights off using a timer or occupancy sensor or manually when not needed. Improving lighting fixtures, so that they direct their light more accurately towards where it is needed, and with fewer side effects. Adjusting the type of lights used, so that the light waves emitted are those that are less likely to cause severe light pollution problems.

Mercury, metal halide and above all first generation of blue-light LED road luminaires are much more polluting than sodium lamps: Earth's atmosphere scatters and transmits blue light better than yellow or red light. It is a common experience observing "glare" and "fog" around and below LED road luminaires as soon as air humidity increases, while orange sodium lamp luminaires are less prone to showing this phenomenon.

Evaluating existing lighting plans, and re-designing some or all of the plans depending on whether existing light is actually needed. Improving lighting fixtures This section needs additional citations for verification.

July A flat-lens cobra luminaire, which is a full-cutoff fixture, is very effective in reducing light pollution. It ensures that light is only directed below the horizontal, which means less light is wasted through directing it outwards and upwards. This drop-lens cobra luminaire allows light to escape sideways and upwards, where it may cause problems.

The use of full cutoff lighting fixtures, as much as possible, is advocated by most campaigners for the reduction of light pollution. It is also commonly recommended that lights be spaced appropriately for maximum efficiency, and that number of luminaires being used as well as the wattage of each luminaire match the needs of the particular application based on local lighting design standards. Full cutoff fixtures first became available in with the introduction of General Electric 's M fixture.

Light released above the horizontal may sometimes be lighting an intended target, but often serves no purpose. When it enters into the atmosphere, light contributes to sky glow. Some governments and organizations are now considering, or have already implemented, full cutoff fixtures in street lamps and stadium lighting. The use of full cutoff fixtures help to reduce sky glow by preventing light from escaping above the horizontal. Full cutoff typically reduces the visibility of the lamp and reflector within a luminaire, so the effects of glare are also reduced.

Campaigners also commonly argue that full cutoff fixtures are more efficient than other fixtures, since light that would otherwise have escaped into the atmosphere may instead be directed towards the ground. However, full cutoff fixtures may also trap more light in the fixture than other types of luminaires, corresponding to lower luminaire efficiency, suggesting a re-design of some luminaires may be necessary.

The use of full cutoff fixtures can allow for lower wattage lamps to be used in the fixtures, producing the same or sometimes a better effect, due to being more carefully controlled.

In every lighting system, some sky glow also results from light reflected from the ground. This reflection can be reduced, however, by being careful to use only the lowest wattage necessary for the lamp, and setting spacing between lights appropriately. A common criticism of full cutoff lighting fixtures is that they are sometimes not as aesthetically pleasing to look at.

This is most likely because historically there has not been a large market specifically for full cutoff fixtures, and because people typically like to see the source of illumination. Due to the specificity with their direction of light, full cutoff fixtures sometimes also require expertise to install for maximum effect. The effectiveness of using full cutoff roadway lights to combat light pollution has also been called into question. According to design investigations, luminaires with full cutoff distributions as opposed to cutoff or semi cutoff, compared here have to be closer together to meet the same light level, uniformity and glare requirements specified by the IESNA.

These simulations optimized the height and spacing of the lights while constraining the overall design to meet the IESNA requirements, and then compared total uplight and energy consumption of different luminaire designs and powers.

Cutoff designs performed better than full cutoff designs, and semi-cutoff performed better than either cutoff or full cutoff. This indicates that, in roadway installations, over-illumination or poor uniformity produced by full cutoff fixtures may be more detrimental than direct uplight created by fewer cutoff or semi-cutoff fixtures. Therefore, the overall performance of existing systems could be improved more by reducing the number of luminaires than by switching to full cutoff designs.

The majority of Italian regions require "zero upward light", which usually implies use of overall full cut-off lamps for new luminaires, but violations are common.

However, using the definition of "light pollution" from some Italian regional bills i.
