As and Architectural Lighting designer I'd like to mention there are a great deal of incorrect statements in this article. I found it very under researched with old data from the AMA circa 2016. The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) and Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) reacted immediately to the AMA article posted on CNN's website in 2016. I suggest reaching out to their public policy contacts to discuss this topic in depth. Your article is mostly based off of internet sources and not from actual Lighting Designers. The Architectural Lighting Design community is very knowledgeable and always open to discuss LED's, Circadian Rhythm and CORRELATED COLOR TEMPERATURE (CCT) providing you with better facts other than citing "Articles Found on the Internet." I'd be happy to point you in the direction of a few firms located in Rhode Island. I have since moved out of the state but it is where I started my career and know of a few firms in the state that could provide you with a more accurate statement and study. This article is aimed with scare tactics that had my parents contacting me immediately at ask about the facts.
Please see the link below for the rebuttal article from the IALD and IES as well as the contact information for the public policy officer. I will be forwarding a copy of this article to them as well. email@example.com
