Night Lights Cause Cancer

A new Israeli study concludes artificial light at night (ALAN) causes weight gain and breast/prostate cancers.

The culprit appears to be a disruption of melatonin, a hormone produced by animals and humans to control metabolism and kill cancers.

Nataliya Rybnikova of Haifa University compiled satellite images of ALAN from more than 80 countries.  High obesity and cancer rates correlated in countries with high ALAN.

The takeaway? Get a day job and get your ass in bed by 10pm.
