Human biology is a subject rarely touched upon here on the Green Blog, but as a part of our series on artificial and organic light, it's worth taking the time to examine the myriad ways in which exposure to light can effect the human body. Our biological processes are driven by light and darkness, each of which trigger changes in the way our bodies release hormones and neurotransmitters throughout the day. This process is known as our circadian system, and the rhythm with which these changes take place regularly over a 24-hour-cycle is a central element of our health and well-being.
Hi! I'm Karen Totino, owner of Green Conscience Home. I'd love to hear your thoughts on any of our posts, so comment away! One of my goals is to get the community discussing some of these eco topics, and hopefully help each other out!
