The human body requires a certain amount of darkness to remain healthy

The human body requires a certain amount of darkness to remain healthy. Too much light can be bad for you – a fact that should be of concern for people who are exposed to bright light for long periods, including certain shift workers. Research involving mice has confirmed that six months of continuously living in bright conditions results in a significant loss of bone mass and endurance along with increased inflammation. The good news is that most of the effects are reversed quite speedily once a regular day-night cycle is re-established.
